What your middle school band instrument says about you

Middle school band was…a special time.

Bad hair, bad skin and a crush on your saxophone-playing director who you were sure was always the super cool dude that took the podium each day you were lucky enough to have band.

You may have burned every picture that proved you were a band geek, but deep down, the experience still has much to say about the person you became, at least if Buzzfeed’s Katie Heaney is to be believed.

Ambitious and high-achieving, you take competition very seriously. As a child you were bookish, quiet, and perhaps even wan. You had a little-known dark side.

You’ve always possessed the wisdom of someone much older. As somewhat of a secret genius, which, seriously, no one ever suspected, you go on to achieve much success because you play by your own rules.
