    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.

    Played music for most of my life.

    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...

    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...

    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 don't want to work--I just want to bang on

    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...

    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.
