If you want to play in a marching band, keep reading the article about the hardest instruments to learn to play in a marching band. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about this topic. When I was younger I played the bassoon, so I can say wood wind instrument are my favourites, but I also love to listen to marching bands and their instruments. What are the hardest ones to play? You will get to know if you read the article.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the  hardest instruments to learn to play in a marching band.

The first one is  Tubadifficulty level (the higher the score the harder it is to play well and march while doing so) is 2; weight (the higher the score the heavier or more awkward it is to hold and play while marching) is 2; competition level (the lower the score the higher demand of instrument players) is 0. You can tell just by looking at it that the tuba is one of the hardest brass instruments to play, much less while marching and staying in line with the band. Props to those who do. The second item on our list now is Percussion. Difficulty level (the higher the score the harder it is to play well and march while doing so) is 1; weight (the higher the score the heavier or more awkward it is to hold and play while marching) is 2; competition level (the lower the score the higher demand of instrument players) is 1. This score on our list of hardest instruments to learn to play in a marching band includes all types of percussion instruments that are played in a marching band. And although there is no blowing required to play percussion, it does require a lot of focused attention to good rhythm. At last, but not least there is oboe. Difficulty level (the higher the score the harder it is to play well and march while doing so) is 2; weight (the higher the score the heavier or more awkward it is to hold and play while marching) is 2; competition level (the lower the score the higher demand of instrument players) is 0. If you’re an oboe player, you shouldn’t have much trouble getting to play in a marching band, but you might have trouble balancing the oboe and while playing the music and marching all at the same time.
