Sometimes, the more religious Band Geeks are found staring at their sheet music and annotating it, furiously fingering along to it if they can. Expect the sheet music to look insanely hard. The Band Geek is by no means a rare breed; despite not being conventionally "cool" or "popular" they can just exist in huge numbers.

* ''WebComic/SWAPEnsemble'' is an odd music program that takes place after school for two hours on every day of February. The students who participate are also part of their own schools' bands and orchestras. Thus they are sacrificing even more time out of their day to practice music than they normally would.
