Default Musicians of BF :)

I'd figured I would start this thread to see how many of us are musicians.

I'm Lee, 33, from Florida. I am a classical musician (oboe and English horn), and I play in a local GLBT wind ensemble while also gigging around. I also sing from time to time (alto).

What about everyone else?

I play most brass instruments. Also a little sax and clarinet. I sing some, thats why Pearls calls me Elvis. I've always wanted to learn to play guitar and piano. Do you have any idea how hard it is to sing with a trumpet or French horn in your mouth?

I played the trumpet for many years. In my dreams, I can still play like I did when I was younger. Perhaps a BP band is in order.

I play a half a** fiddle and a fairly good banjo, I played drums a long time in high school in both marching band as well as kettle drums. I have some what learned to play a lap harp, I bought it at a country fair years ago and it was hand made. Currently I have four guitars two electric but one needs some work on it as it needs a tuner screw fixed, one classical and one I picked up in a garage sale for $5.00.

I am a classically trained singer (soprano). Since having children, I am no longer as busy singing as I once was. When living in Vancouver, I sang with 4 different choirs throughout the city and was a paid singer in one of the church cathedral choirs. I currently mainly sing at weddings and have done 2 funerals in the past year. I do not like to sing at funerals...
Thanks for starting this thread!

Super cool, Blade! So you play a whole gamut of instruments? I couldn't imagine how difficult it is to sing with a brass instrument in general. I had always thought double-tonguing on the oboe was tough, but singing while playing brings it to a whole other level.

Nice – you're quite the accomplished musician.

I play(ed) classical guitar since I was 8, but I haven't played since moving to Jersey about 1.5 yrs ago. My guitar is in storage in Atlanta right now. Next time I visit I'll grab it because I miss playing!

I also played piano, but I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as guitar.

Great thread!

That's super awesome I wish I could sing professionally but only sing when asked by churches. I bet singing at funerals is tough...

Definitely, some of my best memories of young adulthood was being in marching, symphonic and concert band.

I still laugh being a trombonist and every Halloween parade, we "bones" were ALWAYS behind the Clydesdales. So grateful for my parents they purchased a vintage "Olds" trombone for me, rose trim with amazing calligraphy. No "F" attachment, had to get that note the old fashioned way.....stretch that arm baby.

Thank you for starting this thread.

Another obophonist?! Awesome

I too play the oboe/cor anglais in a local orchestra, double on the flute with a dubious level of skill, and play the piano and organ - when I can, playing disguised but entirely inappropriate voluntaries at the end of the mass. (Think the Imperial March from star wars with enough baroque fugic elements that the priest will at least turn a blind ear). At school/uni I sang in the chapel choir (alto) - some of my best memories were with that choir. I'm thinking of bassoon lessons if I can get hold of an instrument for less than 2arms and 2 legs...

Default Wow

Wow, finally something to say. Iv played the guitar for a while, piano for three months( I plan on coming back to that but my teacher said she showed me everything she knew) and a flute. Iv written a lot of music but its always minor scales ( which means they're roots are blue) I don't think the world needs anymore sad songs so I'm waiting. Wow it sounds really stupid when I type it

Default Former classical pianist....

I trained in classical piano from age 7 1/2 to age 13 with the late Walter Gianinni, an Italian organist and pianist who taught piano to a lot of kids in the NJ suburban community. My mom heard that there was a community music school through Montclair State College in Montclair NJ and they placed me with Mr. Mark Pakman, a defector from the Moscow Conservatory who also taught at Julliard. Within two weeks I was learning more about expression and technique than I had in years. We had a very positive working relationship for 10 years when I went away to college to major in music performances and composition. I had decided to see my now married ex partner for a weeks vacation over in England and my mom met me at the airport with a letter from my stepfather which read that if I went I'd finish my semester then move back home without any privileges and rights and finish my degree in community college. I knew at the time that I'd never get anywhere in the biz there, so when mom said it's up to you you're 18 I got on the plane and didn't come home for 4 years. I was hopelessly sex and love addicted as well as angry at the homophobic discrimination I faced. I did an Ellen before Ellen was Ellen.

My parents have grown past that incident but in one significant way I have not: I stopped playing piano. It brings back so many feelings of shame and anger. I have a piano in my home but am afraid to play it. I just don't want to put myself through the torture. But there's a little kid inside that loved it and misses it.

Question: if anyone of you has reclaimed your instrument how did you do it? What made the difference?.
