Yay for people who play multiple instruments! I just started saxophone the other week. Friend of mine played it and offered to teach me, and compulsive instrument learner that I am, I couldn't say no. Sax is easier than oboe, bassoon, French horn, and clarinet. I mean anything is easier than oboe so...

Whoa ten instruments? That's awesome! I can't wait for college, I'm going for music education and I know you need to know lots of instruments for that. Since it's my goal to be able to play them all, everyone kept telling me that I should go into music education, haha.

Watership Down. I've been watching that movie since I was but three years old, a little, impressionable child. Been watching that movie for 14 long years, so I've gotten really into it. It's an old movie from the 1970s, animated, but dang...best movie I've ever seen. It's truly amazing, a great movi...

And she never lets us play Harry Potter music, says it's over-rated.

You know you want to play oboe /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> It is, after all, only the coolest instrument in the entire musical world. Just beware the reeds, oh yes, greatly beware.

You go to a conservatory? That's AMAZING. I'd do anything to be able to get into one of those, I've heard they're the place for really serious musicians, and it's this brilliant place where you learn so much with your instrument. My dream is to get accepted into a conservatory or a music college tha...

I second James's reccomendation of Anne McCaffrey's Pern series...it's amazing, it gets so in depth and she has this whole awesome history behind it. I've been reading it for years and I still wait for every new one to come out. The most recent, Dragonsblood, was pretty good I thought. I also reccom...

Hardcore classical here, even though I suppose two of mine can be used for other things. My primary instrument is the oboe (/English horn, because all oboists can play both, I just don't own one), which is about as hardcore classical as they come. Oboe, alas, can't be used for anything else but clas...

Showtunes...Broadway musicals and such. Absolutely gorgeous.
My second choice would probably be classical. As an oboist, we've got so much stuff in classical music. Violins too, even though I'm not very good yet.

I was in Florida visiting my grandparents, and I was reading this book..."Spindle's End" by Robin McKinley (great book, by the way). In it, one of the main character's real name was Sophronia but she never used it. I loved that name, so I decided to use it as well. Bradenton came from...well, if you...

Ah well...my parents didn't like HP at all at first. They would scoff at it whenever they saw it, and wondered what the whole hype was about, so naturally since I was so young I agreed with them at first (I was in 6th grade). So I'd look at the books and laugh and wonder why everyone liked these boo...
