Musicians, magicians, puppeteers, etc. They rely on their hands for their livelihood. What do they do if something bad happens to their hands? Do they have hand insurance for this reason? Thanks in advance

All suggestions are welcome. New songs, old songs- (it doesn't matter), but the cuter, the better.

No.It's a different instrument.
Just like a violin is not a double bass.

For young children a full size guitar can be too bulky - they can have trouble reaching over the top of it, holding it on their knee and reaching the tuners. In the same way, some smaller adults find a dreadnought too big for them.

Hand size isn't really an issue and there is very little difference in the width of the fingerboard and the depth of the neck. The frets are a little closer together but it makes little difference to the player.

So I am currently I 8th grade playing the trombone. I’d say ( and my instructors would also likely agree ) that I am farely advance for my grade. One day, I asked my instructors if I could play a would wind, particularly the piccolo. My instructors said no, saying it would mess up my ambushure. Do you agree with them? Should I take private lessons and learn it on my own, or listen to them

This is mainly a venting exercise for me as I'm having a panic attack at the mere thought of going to band tomorrow.First of all, I'm not involved in a good band program. My school is huge, but our band is laughable in size. Why? The assistant band director is a lunatic. He has the expectations of a proper drum corp for children as young as 14. In order to receive full marks, you must be "compared to the finest players on your instrument" and "challenge the listener's concept of the "ideal". If anyone reading this is in a high school band, you'll understand how ridiculous this sounds.We aren't allowed to socialize at performances. We must be professional at all times, even when we're just waiting in the stands for our results. He has the delusion that if we intimidate the other bands we will score higher.I know this sounds like a whiny player justifying why they aren't first chair, but both of the directors have obvious favorites. I am invisible to them. You will not get anywhere in class if you don't kiss their ***; something I refuse to do.I think that the attitudes of the other students in band are childish and pretentious. We recently had to relocate to a gym that isn't in use as our band hall is being remodeled. I watched a kid get confused and accidentally wander into the band hall. Everyone started screaming "What is a non-band kid doing in here?" and bullied him until he left. It makes me sick how band kids treat non-band kids.Anyone else feel similar?

I've tried DADGAD, DADGBE, DADGBD, Open G, Open E and Open C and I've always just used whatever strings were on the guitar. I've had no problems although maybe if I was going to use one of these tunings all the time I'd choose different gauges.

I have an acoustic that is in "Nashville Tuning" - that's the "extra" strings on a 12 string - and it obviously requires specific gauges as four of the strings are tuned an octave higher than normal.

Some people use tunings that, to me, aren't "guitar tunings" - they de-tune the whole instrument by several steps. In some cases they want the guitar to be in the range of a baritone guitar or even a bass. Tunings like this certainly wouldn't be possible (assuming the guitar was going to be playable) on a set of 0.009"-0.042" strings!

I want to start playing an instrument, but I don t know which one I should start with. I have read a few articles saying that a piano/keyboard, guitar, and violin are good places to start, but I don t know which one to pick. Which one would you recommend? It does not have to be one of the ones I mentioned.

I was changing the strings on my acoustic guitar, and when I was taking out a bridge pin, I heard something chip off inside the guitar. I found out that a piece of wood chipped off where the pins come through on the inside. Now the pin won t stay in when I try and put in a new string. Can this be fixed? If so, does anyone know how much it might cost?

Yes - obviously a poor performance might affect the audience's perception but it's also about the script, the other actors and the director.
Every aspect might affect an audience's reaction.
