    I play the drums, piano

    and guitar. Music is one thing that has always just helped me relax, feel different emotions stronger then i've felt before. It has helped me grow as a person. It is the one place i go to escape from the world and my problems, sometimes i even go to my music to think of...

    When I play gigs in front of smaller audiences

    I get more nervous and wonder what they are thinking observing, maybe analysing and criticising. When the audience is much larger I feel lees aware and therefore less nervous. The first set is often the more precarious but by the time the second set gets going I am much more...

    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 My Life.

    I'm a musician. I have been since I was about 5 or 6 years old. I've played around with piano since I was 8 or 9, but still not very good. I started bassoon(my life) about 7 or 8 years ago and it's about the only thing in my life that always makes me happy. I've picked up sax...

    I just have this problem with my ability to

    handle jealousy when I'm around other musicians. Most of my friends are in bands, play guitar etc. but I never feel proud or happy for them whatsoever,I just feel constant envy of their talents because I believe they're more talented than me. And so I can appear quite sarcastic...

    I'm a euphonium player

    and aspiring music therapist. I've been playing euphonium for about three years and I've just finished my first season marching my rookie year in a drum and bugle corps this summer. Being a musical performer hasn't just changed my identity, it is my identity.

    I love music. I love playing music.

    But everyone I know sends some mixed messages. My stepdad tells me I have that drive to play that he didn't but in the same breath tells me how hard it is to get into anything that isn't a music teacher. I was supposed to audition for Eastern Regions (basically, if you do good...

    A couple of weeks ago,

    a man called me a musician. I was alone in a small art gallery and the owner came out to do something. He walked past me, saw my ukulele in my backpack and said, ?Oh! A musician!? He smiled, ?Nice ukulele.? and walked off. I?ve never been called a musician. I?ve never really...

    A stranger saw me practicing ukulele in my car

    today (waiting in a parking not driving mind you) and looked at me as if I was a green alien with antenas, sitting next to a pink flamenco.... I saw in his eyes that he will never see the world in the same way again. With a bit of luck I've ruined his life forever.... ;)

    I create electronica.

    It's a style all my own with influences more in alternative hip hop. When i get the equipment i will be adding vocals to it. I had a lot of fun creating this song (and recreating after a computer crash) and i hope you have fun listening to it! PM me for link Thanks!

    can anyone help me find a 10 string mandolin

    nut? all I keep finding is 8 string. I've never filed my own nuts before so I'd rather not just buy a blank nut. but I got this 10 string at an antique shop for $20 and didn't realize how difficult of a piece that would be to find. I really want to play my new mando!!

    and I consider myself to be a musical artist. I read a book about musical expression through marimba and it quoted a philosopher. "But then, no artist is normal; if he were, he wouldn’t be an artist. Normal men don’t create works of art. They eat, sleep, hold down routine...

    since I was 9, drums since I was 16. Now I'm slowly getting into orchestral scoring for film and games. I've played pretty much every style of music other than country.

    I've been playing music forever.

    Started off tapping out beats on everything, started piano lessons, and between middle school til now I've learned to play the Bassoon, all Saxophones, French Horn, Trumpet, Trombone and learned to sing as well. Music is that very rare something that I feel I'd be lost without.

    I think there are generally two types,

    those who are musically inclined and can go somewhere with their talent, and those who just enjoy learning new songs and jamming with buddies. I am definitely the latter ✌️
