Hi, and welcome to my new blog. First post = explanation and introduction of myself and my blog concept.
For starters, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Chris, and I am currently a second-year Music Education student at Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, MI. My major instrument here is the tuba. It sounds lame, but it's actually quite fun. I really like the people in my studio, and the guy who teaches us how to suck less.
I am a proud member of the Chippewa Marching Band, and will be until I die or graduate (whichever comes first). I love the massive sense of camaraderie I feel towards my fellow Chips, and I love being a part of the epic experience that is Chippewa Football.
My musical horizons are not limited to classical and band music, though. I enjoy (or at least appreciate) ALL types of music. I don't discriminate. If I haven't heard it yet, I want to. I'm often pleasantly surprised at what tickles my fancy.
My musical pursuits aren't limited either. I love my tuba, but I carry a brightly burning torch for my guitar, voice and, ever-increasingly, piano. My main pop music influence is Warren Zevon (1 & 2), but I'm also heavily into Jackson Browne right (1 & 2) now. I also have a few off-the wall tastes, such as Bellowhead
I'm limited to covers pretty heavily, because when I write lyrics, it doesn't end well. I write a bit of instrumental music, but it doesn't cut it for me in performance unless I can sing as well. I love performing for people wit my guitar, and I don't do it nearly enough anymore. I'm working to remedy that, though.
Well, that's the intro. If you want to know more about me, feel free to comment to that effect.
