    I relocated to Charlotte,

    NC several months ago, and I really need musician friends around here; my music muscle is almost atrophied from disuse and lack of stimulation.

    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...

    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'm playing a gala tonight

    and I was asked a requested song. The man said " you won't know it though". Pfft. I played it and he was happy but sadly nobody else enjoyed it. People need to return to simplicity. http://youtu.be/05qcA4KPI0k

    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 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.

    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...

    dance schools ever since I was 3. I had a strong passion for ballet & ever since I've entered middle school I've started musical theater along with beginning tap/lyrical. It's been 4 years and now I've grown a love for singing! I'm writing my own songs as well :)

    This song is a rough draft,

    so to speak, I composed this before forming New Wave Ballet with the girls. We are going to redo it, but Nichole needs more studying for it on the drums(Sarajevo part).The title is "Jesus", and the music reflects how he is to me and what I think about when I think Jesus. Enjoy...

    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
