    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...

    I played a gig Friday night in downtown.

    Usually the early show gets just 40-60 people walking in but Friday was something special. I don't know if it was that we couldn't hear each other well and had to pay more attention to the count or that we just had one of those nights. We grabbed the attention of what...

    I play the drums, piano,

    I admit I'm not the best in terms of keeping up

    with a regime for practicing, but I have always been a very musical person and I absolutely LOVE MUSIC!! It's a nice way to escape the anger in my life. Music and books. Makes me a bit of an introvert but I'm okay with that

    I like to think that I'm a musician :p.

    Been playing the guitar since I was 8 or 9? Dont really remember. From 13-17 I was playing either the rhythm, bass or lead guitar in a band. It was a hell of experience. I miss those days!! :)

    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...

    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...

    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.
