    I play the guitar and trumpet

    and sing. I have a 6-string and a 12-string guitar. I don't play a lot and am not very good, but I'm good enough to make people who don't know any better think that I'm good. :) Would love to actually play in a bad someday.

    Music Is Not Only Guitar and Singing

    What is music? I suppose it is, like all art, a way to express yourself. Well at least that is what they say. I guess I somewhat agree. Not totally though. When I listen to music, no matter what kind, I can only hear the inside of it. The notes. Pitches. Rythm. Harmonies...

    Being a musician is the best thing in the world

    I'm not even kidding! As soon as you pick up that guitar or pen and paper or start singing, it's like your worries just flow out with the song (most of the time.) I'm 15 and my biggest dream is to become a musician, I will do everything I can to make sure that dream becomes...

    A Night At The Bar With The Pitches.

    So a C, an E-flat, and a G walk into a bar. The bartender says, "sorry, but we don't serve minors." So E-flat leaves, and C and G have an open fifth between them. After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished and G is out flat. F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is...

    I'm Kind of Elitist.

    I didn't have much of a musical upbringing. My parents wanted me to take piano when I was young, but they never forced me, and now I really wish they did. I played violin when I was around 7, hated it, gave that up very quickly. Then later, around 11 or 12 years old, I started on...

    My student had been accepted to her college of

    choice, and was offered five figures in scholarship awards for her first year of study. I used to think that playing music was the best feeling in the world. But now I know different: watching your student play music is the best feeling in the world.

    Music is a great way to show emotions.

    Some things I just can't put in words so I sing about it. I feel myself when I sing or when I play an instrument.
