Learn to Play the Tuba
Tuba is an important and often under-appreciated instrument. You don't get to play the exciting parts in concert band, you get to wear yourself out moving it around, and tuba players can be the butt of band jokes. But the tuba is essential to the sound of the symphony, providing the support and structure for the entire band. Without a well-played bassline, the whole song will fall apart. If you've got strong arms and big lungs, it's a great instrument.
