There are 3 main reasons he tried for drum major—he can’t march bassoon, he hates marching anyway, and he’s more than likely going to be a music major in the future. For pep band, he plays the low end of the marimba with Kiku because he’s played piano for 8 years. For his drum major audition, he used Flight of the Bumblebee. He hates parades so much and gets tired and sweaty after 2 minutes.
He’s a better player than a marcher, sometimes being a part in making the band go back a set. He mainly chose to march because Arthur and Jett did, and didn’t want Jett to be better at something than him. He keeps his piccolo in top shape and since 8th grade when he got it, it’s probably needed repaired in any way under 5 times, and he treats it like his child. He keeps his uniform bag almost as neat as Ludwig does.
Piccolo/Flute Captain. He’s amazing at playing both. Thoug
