    Ah right It's not all about gifts, the food is good too
    Maybe do a secret santa amongst some people you know
    I suppose. I might go to London for XMAS or bribe someone to visit me

    I'm doing a subscriber secret santa and possibly one with my music class.

    Yup

    I don't know. I've been off for a few days and I don't want to email my teachers incase I receive judgmental replies so I'll look at the courseplan and cover the relevant bits . I also want to finish my music piano composition this weekend as I want to share it with someone.

    Oh, lol. You have an actual fire? That's cool .
    Haha yeah that's understandable So jealous that you play the piano! Such a beautiful thing to play. My friend is grade 8 and I've always envied her talent.

    Hehe I do

    Yep.
    I am rubbish though. It's not really about talent. With hard work, anyone who's averagely intelligent and doesn't have a medical coordination problem can get to Grade 8 in a (non voice) instrument in 5-8 years, with teaching.

    You should start an instrument if you want to.

    I'd agree with that, would take longer than that probably though on your first instrument. 8 years is probably about normal but don't know anyone who has taken 5 years with no musical experience. But go for it Lucy

    True, you work ridiculously hard at it though and are probably more of an exception! Just depends on the person I guess and also the age at which they start to some extent, as well as a degree of natural talent as you say

    Yea. I should probably have put get from Grade1-8. Because depending on the instrument, getting started can take a while! (tuning/positioning etc)

    True- on sax it took me about a term to even get a decent/vaguely reliable sound of of the thing, but then got a merit in my grade 5 a term later. It being my second instrument and very similar to flute is mostly responsible for that, but the point still stands!
