    Hello everyone!

    Hi world,

    My name is Peter, and I am from Boston, USA. I am 22, and I have been a musician for 10 of those years. I'm excited to be on these forums, as it seems that people here have an in-depth understanding of music.

    If you'd like to hear some of my music for yourself, here is a link:

    Thanks!

    Marvel- glad I could join too! Happy to have found this place.

    John- Thanks for the feedback! Very in depth. I can't recall any Level 42 tunes off the top of my head but I'm sure I've heard them, i'll check them out. I hear what you're saying about the instrument sounds, recording, and video. I suppose the reason is that it was my first attempt at a video in Final Cut X, and I spent much of my time working on that as opposed to the music. I've always been equally interested in production as in musicianship, and hopefully I won't make the mistake of neglecting one over the other. I'll admit that I'm guilty of getting a bit carried away sonically!

    Anyway, you are welcome for the meditation. The nature scenes are some of my favorite places on earth so far, whenever I go to them, creativity flows like a river. This was my attempt to re-thank them for that, I guess. Many of them in the video were the places that I wrote the lyrics or brainstormed for my other work.

    And again, thank you for the in-depth analysis and feedback!

    Welcome aboard mate! Many a moon ago, I lived in Fitchburg. 'Bout and hour give or take from Boston. There used to be a group that would relax near the harbour playing music. I wonder if they're still there? Used to love to listen to them play. But then again...that's been before you were born. Love the music, by the way. Very relaxing.

    It IS nice to see some young blood isn't it? All us "old" dogs have someone to tell our stories to, eh?

    If I can comment about this domain's functionality,
    I got into so much commentary because I was close to the top and could watch and type.
    Too bad the replies can't be like that all the time.

    This old dog likes editing as much as composing, a clerical weakness, I suppose.
    Well my friend you're only as old as you feel! And trust me, to do the job of a band director/music level at any level you have to have the wisdom of all of your years, and you have to feel like you're twenty five again! And for me, that goes for any teacher really. From kindergarten to college.

    He was accepting of my comments as much as he understands his own musicianship.
    I've judged and have been present backstage during arena rock band contests,
    and it's the musicians who are putting everything into the winning or losing moment,
    that fail to progress as players or people.
    Which is absolutely great! As musicians, constructive criticism helps us to grow. He seems to be a decent guy--what limited interactions we've add so far

    Too bad he just seems sensitive to musical and natural environments.
    One of my new year's eve resolutions was to embrace the dark side,
    to enhance my "soundtrack player" abilities,
    playing the soundtrack of our lives.
    I noticed that too. I was begging to think maybe I stunk or something? I mean I know I smell a little funky after a 14hr day but I take a shower when I get home.

    Hey guys- sorry about that! Didn't mean to give the impression that I was "gone" from this thread! Been busy these past few days. I truly appreciate all the kind words once again.
    @John Watt - What do you mean by "and it's the musicians who are putting everything into the winning or losing moment,
    that fail to progress as players or people."? I think I understand but I'm not entirely sure. Anyway I really love what you said regarding the "soundtrack to our lives". The tune I wrote in that video is a song that does a fairly good job at musically narrating my life personally. Not even the lyrics or anything - just the tone and mood. I love the darker stuff too - my next endeavors will include claymations and animations hopefully.

    Aha welcome back. Don't worry about it! We just rather assumed that you had disappeared on us, like so many. Oh and don't mind me. You should know that all band directors are a little out there. But welcome back, welcome back, non-the-less!
