They are seen as the more mature bunch in band, and generally move in small packs or groups. They are friends with the colour guard, and have a higher count of females generally. Also seen as hardworking by the directors, the woodwind section leader is generally a lot tougher on their people, as their instruments are as naturally as obnoxiously loud as the brass (With the exception of Piccolo.) They are the first to memorize their drill, and leave goofing off to outside rehearsal, or at least are clever enough not to get caught.
After marching season, they are the heart and soul of the Wind Ensemble.
"LAWLZ. YOU ARE WOODWINDS. YOU PLAY SOFTLY. YOU SUCK!"
-Trumpet player, at the beginning of marching season.
"You outplayed us in band today. It's not fair! We have thirty second notes."
-The same trumpet player, a week into wind ensemble.
(Please note that second and third trumpets and third clarinets often play the same part. The same applies for first cornet and second clarinet. First clarinet plays with the flutes and, occasionally, the first trumpet.)
"Woodwinds are gods. Don't mess with the woodwinds." Why not? I thought that-" (vanishes from existance from questioning the woodwinds god-like authority.)
Usually are the most immature in a marching band.
They do however have some importance during concert season (when the awesome brass players aren't playing).
Person 2: It's not their fault, they just have too many woodwinds. Good bands should only have brass and percussion. I mean... look at Drum Corps.
