I ended up choosing Double Bass because I had a lot of sensitivity to noise when I was younger (anything to high or loud was super overwhelming.) I almost ended up playing cello, which I picked up a few years later. I also started out as a Classical music kid (that was the only option my school had for Bass players,) and I switched to doing more jazz once I reached Junior High
i’ve never thought about sensitivity to noise as motivation for choosing an instrument, but tbh after remembering my screeching when i first got the violin it makes a lot of sense.
also- cool! i’m a big fan of jazz so i envy anyone who can play in jazz band, aha
I chose double bass for two reasons: When I was in fourth grade, I joined a percussion ensemble and fell in love with the low xylophones (or whatever they gave us). In fifth grade, the sixth graders would perform the music concerts (choir band orch) to the whole school. That's when I decided I wanted to be in orchestra over band. Combine loving low sounds and strings, and you get double bass! :3
this is such a nice reason!!! (also i’m impressed they gave fourth graders low xylophones,,,,we played recorders)
and we did those concerts too! eighth graders got to tour elementary schools and play for the fifth graders that were going to ours.
