I spend my time and money on three main things: school, video games, and MUSIC. Reading fanfic is getting a serious honorable mention right now.
I AM: (((An Instrumentalist, a Composer, an Educator))) ((A Flutist, a Pianist, a Singer, a Young Woman, Uniquely Wired)) (Open-Minded, ADD, OCD, Introverted)
I'm a Music Education student. I want to be a high school band director. I'll not worry about being subtle and just say my favorite thing in the world is BAND. I LOVE BAND! BAND BAND BAND ESPECIALLY MARCHING BAND. AND THE COOLEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD ARE BAND DIRECTORS AND I WANT TO BE ONE WHEN I GROW UP.
Accordingly, as of now I can sufficiently play every (standard) instrument except clarinet, cello, and guitar. Woo! But of course my best instrument is the one I've stuck with formally for over 10 years, flute.
My alter ego is Luna Lovegood. This was confirmed not only by myself but also by my friends' unsolicited assessment.
I write music, people. My best area seems to be solo instrumental works with piano accompaniment. I do this on my own terms (NOT formally studying) and I like it that way. I care too much about my hobby to sour it by turning it into an obligation. My other hobby is playing by ear. I turned that one into a skill on accident.
SUBJECTS THAT OCCUPY THIS MUSIC STUDENT'S MIND: What are the most important practice habits to make? How does one become a good composer? What would I be doing with my life if I weren't teaching music? Flute repertoire. Practice rooms. Recital programs. Collecting recital credits. Juries. Learning the part. Learning the parts. Lessons. How and when should I study? Am I taking too many credit hours? Am I in good standing with my music professors? Am I feminine enough? Am I too weird? Composition ideas. This story/author is such a good read, and here's why... Ideas on teaching to write down so I remember them in the future. I should probably do some cleaning today. Score study is fascinating. Music History, oh Music History. My friends: the good, the bad, and why I shouldn't be ashamed to need them in my life.
