  2. Stolen from a better known musician, so you get 5 bonus points if you identify where they were stolen from ...

    1) Definition of a trombone: A wind-powered, manually operated pitch approximator.

    2) Know what the bulb on the end of an English Horn is? Just plant one, fertilize and water well, and a new oboe grows.

    3) How to make a piccolo: Once a year, upon the first pressing of this year's crop of olive oil in Italy, large vats are gathered and set on a huge bonfire. Local musicians gather up all their old flutes (good for nothing else anyways) and boil them in the vats of oil. The flutes shrink into piccolos. This is known as a Mediterranean flute fry.

  3. You know that bulb on the bottom of an English horn? It's really an oboe seed. Plant it and an oboe grows. An English horn is just a fully mature oboe.

  4. Where do piccolos come from?

    Once a year, along the Italian coast, the first pressing of extra virgin olive oil is dumped in huge vats and set over giant bonfires on the beaches. Locals gather up all the flutes that have been irritating them over the last year and throw them into the boiling oil. The flutes shrink down into piccolos.;

    This is known as a Mediterranean Flute Fry.

  5. Q: What's the definition of a gentleman?
    A: One who knows how to play the saxophone, but doesn't!

  7. Violin Jokes
    Q: What's the difference between a violin and a viola?
    A: There is no difference. The violin just looks smaller because the violinist's head is so much bigger.
