Musician Jokes

152 posts in this topic

I noticed that there were a lot of musicians on here.

So...... here all you musicians can post musician jokes, talk about your bad sight-reading skills, and bemoan your musician fates.

Him: So what instrument do you play?

Me: I play the viola!

Him: Oh. (pause) What difference does that make?

Me: (pause) What?

Him: I mean, why do you play it? Did you injure yourself as a child? Is that why you can't play the violin?

Me: Uhhhh, no, I can play the violin. I just like playing the viola more.

Him: (Gets up) (leaves room)

Me: (Blinks several times) (Shrugs) (takes out viola) (Begins to practice)

LOL!!!! Violas are underrated. They barely get any attention, and barely anyone knows what they are. 

[insert viola joke]

disclaimer: I don't play viola (I play violin), but my sister does

Viola jokes. The best kind of music jokes.

How can you tell if a viola is playing out of tune? The bow moves.

What is the difference between the first and last viola desks? About half a bar.

(And these are the ones I have heard from viola players)

One of my favorite pieces of music, despite never playing or hearing it:

@snipexe LOL, that's a bass, not a cello.

Q: How do you tune two oboes?

A: Shoot one.

Q: How many clarinets does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

A: One, but they'll go through an entire box before they find the right one.

I play violin and my brother plays viola, so I know a few viola jokes.

Q: How do you keep your violin from being stolen?

A: Put it in a viola case.

A viola player goes to a convenience store to get a drink. However just as he is paying, he realizes that he left his viola case out in plain view. He rushed back to his car, but it was already too late...someone had already broke in and left 3 more violas.

@Sami That one can be adapted for any voice part: How do you know when a soprano is at the door? Or an alto/tenor/bass. ;)

@Sami XD Many music jokes are kinda mean since they tend to pick on the different players. For example:

Q: What's the only advantage a bassoon has over an oboe?

A: It burns longer.

LOLLLLL oh well, that's why only musicians can make them. That way the other instrumentalists can retaliate in kind:

Q: What's the definition of a minor second? A: Two flutes playing a unison.

Flute players spend half their time tuning their instrument and the other half playing out of tune. 

Coincidentally, my same sister also plays flute....

Oh, the bad oboe jokes have begun! (Every oboist knows that there's no such thing as a good oboe joke.)

I do remember noticing that the jokes disappeared in college. Because that's the point where we start learning reed adjustment techniques. Nobody wants to mess with the only folks in band or orchestra who are allowed to carry knives.

You know, it's actually not difficult to play a flute in tune. It's just an instrument that has an unfortunate tendency to attract timid players who aren't putting in enough breath support to keep it steady.

Q: What's the difference between an onion and a viola?
A: You cry while you chop up an onion.

Q: What do you do with a tone-deaf trumpet?
A: Take away his trumpet, give him a pair of sticks, and make him a drummer.

Q: What do you do with a drummer who has no sense of rhythm?
A: Take away one of sticks and make him the conductor.

From my sister, the violist:

'The difference between violin and viola is that the viola is a violin with a college education.' (Attributed to William Primrose)

 

obviously it's the other way around:

'The difference between violin and viola is that the violin is a viola with a college education.' (Attributed to Sami)
