Hi, fellow spark musicians. I play clarinet.
Recently, when a group of friends got together to play my grandchildren dragged out my 50 year old clarinet. To my surprise I can still play! Clarinet needed a LOT of work so I ended up buying a new Buffet, something I wanted in high School.
Currently working on a Vivaldi concerto and another piece with a violinist, cellist, and flutist. I am so excited!
I also play classical guitar, my real love, but arthritis in my hands makes it difficult. Hope to do more with that, too.

Hi Spark musicians,
I play back up rhythm guitar in our family band... and play piano at home sometimes, as I studied piano for 10 yrs. I have a Fine Arts degree and have taught music as a substitute, we play at church often and around town... farmer's markets and stuff like that. I find it is the best fun to sing and play with my kids!
I am a single parent , full time./ home schooling and self employed at home. So the band is another source of fun and income as well!
Our band plays bluegrass, jazz, blues, Irish, Old time and country!

Hello -- I've played French Horn since starting in 5th grade, many moons ago! I've played in community bands, a 20-piece Horn choir (that was FANTASTIC), and a community orchestra. Right now, I need to get my lip back in shape so I can play some at church.

I am a mezzo-soprano and sing in my church choir, but I've been in many musicals, and I even had the opportunity to be the chorus of the opera 'I Am the Way' written and performed by Jerome HInes, in 1995. I actually just found the video on YouTube.. go figure.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vjgrtj_Y9x

Hello! It's wonderful to find a musician group on here! I'm a classically trained soprano. I have a church gig that keeps me pretty busy, I direct an early music schola, I teach private lessons and I do the odd opera/musical once in a while. I played percussion in high school band and still dabble in that from time to time.

If not now, when?

I play piano, sing, play drums, and play bass for my full-time gig. We're a dueling piano bar, so we do Top 40 Hits from the 50's through today. It's challenging to always work nights - it makes it hard to have a consistent eating, sleeping and exercising schedule. Any tips?

Hi! I'm from British Columbia. I've been singing and playing guitar since I was nine and played in all-occasion bands until the mid 90's until I moved to BC from Saskatchewan. I really enjoyed not "having to play" and pick up my 12-string when I want to now. I dabble at bit with the keyboard and plan to purchase a digital baby grand once the room is completed.

i'm currently teaching in the talented arts program in our school district. it just got started last year so i have vocalists, four theater kids, two pianists and a percussionist. my background is vocal music ed, with ten years teaching experience and 21 years as a parent. lol. i loved classroom music, fifth grade ELA, and choir. first grade, not so much. i sing with a local auditioned choir and last summer i did my first musical as a cast member. that was so much fun! i'd have more fun with less of me so i'm sparking again and working towards feeling healthy more of the time. (fibromyalgia bites, fyi)

live. love. laugh...every day.

Guitar/singing. I'd like to do more vocal training. Acoustic folk/rock Joni Mitchell/JT/Beatles etc. Playing off and on for myself for years, but went to some open- mics. Scary but challenging to play and sing with others. The 30 minute per day practice goal is great!

Hey, new here!

I sing (coloratura soprano) and play piano. I'm quite rusty on the piano since I don't have one at my house, but I love playing it. I can sort of play guitar but since I quit taking lessons (I wasn't very good) I let my fingernails grow out. I really want to learn to play the violin but right now I can only afford one instrument and I'm devoting everything to my voice.

Hey, Just found this team from one musician to the other.I have been playing now acoustic guitar now over 36years.
I play for fun, for church and around camps. I played in gigs, wild west shows and civil war camps. Tons of fun!
Also play the keyboard, flute and have a drum set and harmonica, I can fake the Violin and the banjo. Its fun but not my choice of instrument lolol

Its great to be around musicians! I miss jamming the most :-)

Trying to teach my son the drums and my daughter the guitar. I wish I was a teacher but I am not hahahaha
