Thank you everyone for your support and encouragement! I truly appreciate it and it means the world to me - thank you!!! :-) I will try to catchup on comments as soon as I can!
I love the SC community, because it is a 'community', with the many styles of music and the inspirations and encouragement I find here for all!
I am/was a classically trained pianist (but a tad rusty), who has restarted a new musical journey in the field of electronic music, after discovering SC and so much talent - I loved what I heard and wanted to join in, but so much to learn! :)
I'm not sure what styles of music I will be creating and experimenting with, possibly of many genres, and/or focussing on one or a few
- still exploring and not feeling bound by any rules! .... I will also be updating my piano skills and composing new works as I go.
Music has been a part of my life since a young child (my whole family is musical, though of different styles, with my step-father's fantastic rock-band and analog synths, bass and acoustic guitar, my mother's gorgeous Irish folk-band, autoharp and dulcimer, my brother's beautiful self-taught guitar, and my Dad's famous banjo playing) :)
At a young age of about 5, I attempted composing my own piano works whilst begging my mother for piano lessons; after about a year of begging and my wish became reality and I trained for the AMEB exams :) ...I eventually started performing live, with tours around the country area as a youngie for a singing group and for theatre groups.
But eventually, I headed down a different path in academia, in getting my Bachelors degree, Masters degree and a PhD in organisational change management psychology and environmental/community impact studies ...
Now I have a chance to find this dream again, as long as its fun! I also find it very therapeutic, as music can often express so much more than words can and its a journey where time seems to have no meaning :)
So, I would love it if you would follow me on this 'journey' because any advice or feedback would be greatly appreciated! :)
And of course, I am also here as a FAN, and would love to find more people to listen to! There are so many wonderful, talented musicians up here, and I cannot get enough of your music! I have very eclectic tastes in music :-) x Also, please follow my separate reposting account, where I repost music when I can, so as not to confuse my main profile, hehe - follow and I'd love to listen to your tracks there too! https://soundcloud.com/megs-reposts
My apologies too if there is ever a delay in my replies, as I can't always be here, but will make sure I get back to you and comments, I appreciate them so much! ... and of course listen to as much as I can!
Hoping to find all my friends, and new ones too! ;-)
... and thank you so much too! .... SoundClouder Of The Day, 18 May 2O13 [in Aussie Land time!] - its all thanks to your support and encouragement and still learning from you all!
