i guess it's fairly obvious, huh?

i know n my case, when i was a little kid i wanted to play violin but the orchestra teacher told me i was too big and should play bass....




I had the exact opposite experience; I started out playing clarinet and my teachers encouraged me to switch to tuba. I didn't hit my growth spurt in earnest until almost the end of my freshman year; imagine a 5'2" freshman walking out to the practice field carrying an instrument bigger in total volume than he was.
