    I learned music really late.

    I was 26 when I began playing the drums. Now I bass guitar as well.

    I, myself, am a musician

    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...

    True. It's my life pretty much.

    I play piano, flute and guitar.

    I've played in all sorts of bands over the years but prefer listening to music than playing now. I get frustrated that I can't play with the skill I want. Just something else I've had to accept in my life.

    I arranged this cover to (TRUE) by Spandau

    Ballet. I hope you enjoy, thanks. It was very difficult finding the right instruments and settings, and a very emotional experience for me. Johnny

    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...

    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...

    And music saved my life.

    I discovered my love for the piano at the age of 16 when I was experiencing my lowest point in life. I taught myself to play by ear and two years later I knew I had to pursue this professionally. My mind has opened up I. Ways I didn't think we're possible, and I regained control...

    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.

    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.
