    Anyone else suffer from toxic perfectionism?

    I started at Berklee college of music and when I got here I realize I am in my head constantly when I play. I always thought that I was having fun when I'm jamming bit when I see how carefree others are I am beginning to realize how mad it makes me when I make tiny mistakes...

    I play the drums, piano,

    flute, guitar, and sing. My stress reliever is the drums. My whole family knows when I am mad or stressed because they hear me on the drum set. I love just taking a pair of drums stick and rocking out to a favorite band or just playing some simple beats. I have been playing...

    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.

    I may not have covers of songs

    or anything but I'm the biggest band geek you'll ever see. Clarinet, baritone, percussionist, piano, and guitar on occasion. I can sing but I like to let my instruments do all the talking.

    I have always loved music.

    I play keyboards, guitar, percussion and I sing. When I was at school I played recorder and I even played the trombone in the brass band. I didn't keep that up though as it wasn't exactly cool. I have been writing songs since my early teens and still do now. When I was...

    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...

    Playing a musical instrument is the only way

    one can express his emotions to the people around him and to the whole world. You can always tell whether somebody is sad or happy by the music they play to themselves. By the way, I have a relationship with the violin since i was only 8... I love my violin... and all the music...

    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 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...
