    Okay, I decided t put this is general chat becasue music is more for genres I think,

    Music peeps, what experiences have you had?

    I've been on tour
    Seen many concerts (I'm going to a prom this year)
    Played and sang in presigious venues
    Entered competitions (e.g. composition)
    Auditioned for an award
    Entered a festival
    Completed grades
    Played in the orchestra pit of an opera
    Played on a string course
    Played in an octet, quartet and quintet once

    I cant think of any more! So what have others do? As I'm trying to get ideas. SOmeone has asked me to be in a quartet for experience which I might do

    no, i mainly play music from film scores, such as Danny Elfman etc... and i also play the music of bands,

    i try and create my own pieces of 'classical music' - which sounds strange, but nice

    I used to write songs, from the age of 9, pretty sad arent I, and use my keyboard to make the music. Now when I look back at the songs I wrote, they started off by rainbows/ sunshine, to life, and my last song I wrote was 2 years ago, it is about love, and I sent it to westlife.
