True Musicians
 
Sense this just so happens to be a rather musical site, I was just wondering if anybody other than myself is involved in music outside this site!

I am currently a member of 2 drum corps, a marching band, a winter drumline, all-county (Band and Jazz band), and I'm doing a level 6 NYSSMA solo.

Anybody else out there??



PS: the poll includes a NYSSMA option. I now realize that it is only in NY(duh), choose "none, but interested" as the "other" option please

I play violin, started playing the guitar, and like to sing when I'm alone :p

Also I'm pretty sure there was a thread for this, but it died out.

yeah i played violin for a while, but I kinda just stopped at some point.....moved on to other instruments I guess!

2 things on the poll,

1, I believe you're missing orchestra in there

2, NYSSMA is New York State only I believe.

NYSSMA is a New York State thing only haha. You should also put other just in case. I also make my own music and sing covers once in a while, learn to play some songs on piano by ear, and I'm planning on taking vocal lessons from a known professional vocalist.

I also play violin for 8 years, but stopped after senior year. I would like to pick it up again just for fun.

I want to learn acoustic too (:

How do you edit a poll?

Oh well, I'm sure people will post their musical commitments here in this thread.

Just wondering, where are you located in NY? I'm from the Albany area haha!

I play no instruments, but have been DJing for about 6 years now and am a recording engineer. Also run my own label and am pursuing music production more than ever.

Not a musician in the traditional sense, but I think I still count as a musician ;-)

I've been playing piano all my life.

I know some violin, and some guitar. And I can pick up an instrument pretty fast.

I'm also really big on digital production like Zajac

Re: True Musicians
 
Calling this thread "True Musicians" is kind of a dick move, the reasoning being is that by saying "outside of the site" you're saying everyone who has music on this site at all isn't a "true musician" which is blatantly [and hilariously] wrong.

I used to play trombone but braces made me stop.

Edit: And yes I realize that wasn't your intent, but just saying.

I play for myself.

I was in concert and marching band all 4 years of high school, winter percussion my freshman year (it was the first and last year our school had an ensemble since we were really bad), and this was my first year in the RCC marching band which is pretty freaking awesome, since I was able to be in the rose parade. I don't want to audition for any drum corps yet, but I'll wait a couple years until I'm better at mellophone and try out for one, maybe blue devils? :grin:

Currently in a cover band hoping to move into some of our own music. Usually we experiment with some light rock/classic rock songs.

I also sing and play piano in my spare time.
I have a tenor sax lying around, but haven't really approached it since grade 8 school concert band.

Re: True Musicians
 
In DCA, I'm in the Rochester Empire Statesmen. I'm also in a mini-drum corps called "The Edge." We auditioned for America's Got Talent on the 12th! Don't know if we made it yet.
Haha also couldn't tell you if I knew x)
