what kind of a musician are you?

The short version? Music major in college, focusing on theory and composition.

I started music lessons in the Orff Kodaly system when I was almost 5 (it's a system designed to help small children learn music.) I played flute primarily up through high school, bassoon in high school and college, sang both soprano 1 and 2 in various choirs, including a couple of audition ones, picked up folk harp at the very end of high school, and play enough piano to have been the Catholic choir's accompanist for 2 years in college. (The other two years, we had someone around who was better than I was: I'd rather sing, honestly.)

These days, it's the harp, and the singing, and the sometimes composition, and I'm working on ways to do more of it around other people more often.

(One of the things I miss most in the Catholic to Pagan transition is that it's harder to find groups to do good-quality amateur complex singing with. I love ritual music in a Pagan context, but we don't do parts singing, for example: the most complex is rounds or riffed harmonies: wonderful in their own way, but not quite the same thing.)
