An empty forum! And It's the music one!
No one else a musician on here?
Coz I play the piano, and compose and stuff. Going on to do music at uni next year and everything.

I used to play the flute back in grade 8 & 9, the teacher even put my in the senior band I was so good.
I haven't played the flute since, but I am really wanting to learn to play the piano (or organ). I just can't afford it right now, money and time wise. Hopefully I can in the near future.

REALLY ??? So did I !!
I got up to (and passed) Grade 4, but I gave up before taking Grade 5 as they insist that you do vibrato for Grade 5, and I'd never been taught how, and my teacher thought I was just taking the p!ss (which I took exception to), so I gave it up ...
I do miss it sometimes - I enjoyed it :smile:.

Hey I played the Viola for a bit too! Gave up tho. Did my collarbone in.
And I didn't realise these were all new! I must've joined at the same time as them!

I'm not really sure whether I can label myself a "musician".
In the band I'm in, I'm the lead singer and lyricist, currently trying to learn to play the piano, mostly so that I can actually compose the music to go with the lyrics I write (so far the music is only in my head). :smile:

I used to play Piano... got up to playing grade 4, although never took any of the Grading exams... but... like my German skills, never used em once I left school and I doubt I could play any good now.

Hmm, clearly not an active forum. Maybe because everyone is too busy making music?
I earn my living from music. Like most musicians I know I'm lucky to have an interesting mixture of projects on the go. :cool:

The viola rocks .......
It's heartwarming to see so much enthusiasm for the viola here :smile:
For those who may not know, viola players in orchestras are generally subject to the same abuse as drummmers in rock bands - often the same jokes with just a change of instrument! eg ahajokes dot com slash viola dot html. However, I love the following enthusiastic response in support of the viola, especially the bit where we learn that Jimi Hendix started out as a viola player ...! violinist dot com slash blog slash fiddleheads slash 20071 slash 6425

Im a song writer, if that counts, I just need to get some software to make music since I cant play an instrument except the vocals.
