    I've been singing for

    as long as I can remember, went to college for Music Ed with voice as instrument and started playing guitar about 5 years ago. Always very involved but have a toddler and disabled husband now so no time to do any of it out with friends. I try to keep up with practice at home...

    I thought it would be fun to arrange a cover

    song, so I did, lol. It's called "True", a tune by Spandau Ballet in 1983. I don't really do music anymore and put it on my dad's youtube channel he said it was ok. I like the challenge of finding the same instruments and settings. Although this cover isn't perfect I hope you...

    I play the flute. Yes it seems like a feminin

    instrument, but trust me, it's not. Anyone else plays the flute?

    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...

    but my dream instrument is the cello. I love deep string instruments but a bass is a bit too big for me so I've always wanted a cello. I was getting one for Christmas because I got a really good deal on one. Normally I couldn't afford one but I finally, finally got a chance to...

    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...

    I used to play tuba, trombone, and guitar; now I play piano and didgeridoo. I've accepted that I'm too old to play for a career, or live out my rock n roll fantasies, but it's still alotta fun playing. I've never been able to get a band together, but playing with one is on my...

    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.

    When I play gigs in front of smaller audiences
