    It is a tragedy that people aren't able to develop their talents or even discover them.
    I am in the same boat, I took one singing lesson and the teacher was impressed with my range and that was just notes I didn't have to try very hard to hit.
    I only have money to pay for rent and a little left over for food, nothing else. Nothing for me, just feel like i'm existing, it's hell.
    Art should be nurtured in people in every society and not let it be put on the back burner due to lack of money or time!

    Now, I think I know what you tried to say to me
    And how you suffered for your sanity
    And how you tried to set them free
    They would not listen, they're not listening still
    Perhaps they never will...

    I'm an amateur pianist and composition and music history student at university. I can sing as well, bass baritone voice, but I stopped practicing that from age 14 to focus more on piano.

    I have just started composing more seriously this year. I hate the computer software most people use for composing (Sibelius etc), and write on manuscript with a pencil and rubber instead lol. As a result of the assignments I've been set to do, I have been writing movements for violin and piano and piano trio, which I hope I can turn into larger, multi-movement works later. I can play piano up to a grade 8 level at the moment but I am trying to increase that so I can play my own compositions.

    My favourite composers are Beethoven, Schubert and Schumann. I am interested in the period of history from 1800 to 1850 - the Napoleonic Wars and the period after.

    Like this? Apparently she has a 5 octave vocal range. She is a great singer.

    Have you ever heard/listened to Serena Ryder? I've been really into her for a long time now, her and Nicole Atkins.
    It would be awesome to hear you sing

    I've fiddled with the guitar and piano and haven't minded it. Even like it. Because I don't have a lot of experience with it yet.

    But I like to sing above all, I think... and I'm decent at it. My style is like a cross between Ville Valo from HIM and Andy Biersack from BVB.
