Totally me (music version)

My friend, Elizabeth, posts “Totally Me” posts on her blog to describe herself and to allow her readers to know her better. I copied her idea…and so here we go!

Band:

I LOVE learning new instruments. So far, I have/can play piano, flute, violin, bassoon, and a few random other instruments, such as hand bells and recorder.

♫♪ Music ♪♫ is not what I do It’s who I am.

I just hit my 10th year doing music (well, technically, it’s 13, since my parents wanted to start music young…but I was SO shy that I refused to talk to the teacher…and do anything else in front of the teacher, so they decided to quit for a little while).

Teehee, teehee…

Music is a language. I think that special connections can be made between people when music is involved.

Always

For the first 3 years of my taking piano lessons, I never spoke a word to my teacher…except once, when I said “Thank you.” We still got along fine though, and I learned a lot…we communicated through music.

Yes, I like classical music (and opera). No, I am not "old.":

Oh…you play the piece through twenty times, non-stop, no mistakes. Person walks in; you can hardly get through the FIRST line without messing up. And this, my readers, is why I fail auditions. Every. Single. Year.

Sight reading reality-  YASS so true!:

And sight reading could also be why I fail auditions, too.

Yes!! Sometimes it makes me think the conductor doesn't like the sound of clarinets...:P

Oh, the joys of band

funny marching band quotes - Google Search:

Going Beyond Music In Our Schools Month

I’m SO blessed to be able to learn to play music…and I’m appreciating it to death!

If I still had a piano in my house, this would be put on canvas and placed on the wall above it.

To learn music is to learn a whole new language, one universally known and understood.:

Music will never let you down:

Marching band isn't easy but its worth it

Music:

Psalm 100:1-2

"Praise the Lord with trumpets, guitars, harps, tambourines, dancing, flutes and loud clanging cymbals!" From Psalm 150 ("Hallelujah" in Hebrew.)

Some flute quotes-

YASS!!! Do you know how to finger that?

Yup…and also, “Do you know how to finger that?”

Flautist....all the way:

It’s a flautist. NOT flutist. That’s wrong. (Even if spellcheck thinks it’s the other way around).

that is the first thing i thought when i saw this part:

Life is like a flute. It may have many holes and emptiness, but if you work on it carefully, it can play magical memories.

Love that quote!

Psalm 150:4

You’ve gotta have at least ONE about strings, right?

Nice visual for "Do Re Mi" from The Sound of Music. I think sol is actually supposed to be so, but this is really cute :)

Last but not least-

Psalm 150:1-4, 6 Praise the Lord!  Praise God in His sanctuary;  Praise Him in His mighty firmament! Praise Him for His mighty acts;Praise Him according to His excellent greatness! Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; Praise Him with the lute and harp! Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.  Praise the Lord!

That’s it!
