I help out a bit here... I'm glad to be involved.
I play several instruments: A clarinet, of course, a Bass Clarinet, Eb Alto Clarinet, Tenor Sax, and a bit of brass, though I learned to play brass on a French Horn, so that's what I'm best at.
Instrument Fandom! Come... share the love.
I play in every band the school as to offer, and I've been in quite a few music festival-type things. It's good stuff.
I've just started writing music. Computerized programs such as Sibelius and Finale Notepad make the process a little easier. Okay... a lot easier. They pretty much dominate sitting with a clarinet and a book of staff paper, and trying to singlehandedly write a duet. Blah.
I do hope this place takes off the way Elftown has. The concept is incredibly awesome.

Would listing all of my favorite music here be as mundane as listing it in my Elftown profile? I think not.
Okay, probably. Nevertheless:
(In relatively alphabetical order)
(Adagio for Strings is something everyone needs to listen to. It's brilliant.)
Benjamin Birkbeck (Dunne Roman)
Any Classic Jazz
Dave Brubeck Quartet
Death Cab for Cutie
(Minus "Coin Operated Boy")
(Not so much for the depressed adolescent angle, but more because Amy Lee can hold a note: a value few modern singers have discovered.)
(Don't tell anyone)
The Grass Roots
(Ilene Stahl is amazing)
System of a Down
Theory of Negativity
I'm also a fan of Zelda and Final Fantasy music. (Revels in her geek-ness) ^_^
There is much, much more. The above is only a list of essentials.
Mostly just to show off my newfound transparent GIF skillz. That's right. With a Z.
