Hardcore classical here, even though I suppose two of mine can be used for other things.
My primary instrument is the oboe (/English horn, because all oboists can play both, I just don't own one), which is about as hardcore classical as they come. Oboe, alas, can't be used for anything else but classical, except some contemporary I guess. It's my main instrument for years and I hope to go to college on it. I play oboe in my school band (ack!), but also in my (far better) youth orchestra where I'm second oboe. Next year I pray I might be in a chamber ensemble of some sort, as I know I can do it now. I just started making my own reeds...dun dun DUN! Oboe is awesome, though.
My second is violin which I've only been doing for just under a year. I LOVE violin, it's such an amazing instrument. It's hard though...I'm just getting to the hard parts now, the shifting and vibrato and such. You can be classical and like jazz country and whatever on violin, it's really versatile. I hope next year to be in a youth orchestra with that because my teacher seems to think I can do it. I'm just boggled at the idea
My last is flute which I just started in April out of the kindness of my heart. See up until April I had no thought of ever touching a flute. Then my friend said she didn't know what to do with hers...her terribly abused flute, she dented the poor thing several times and left it in a horrid environment. I just felt so bad I said I'd take it and learn flute, and now, hey, I play the flute. Going to be in the lesser school band with it, and hopefully someday in addition to regular flute I can find a bass flute which is my dream instrument. Bass flutes are so gorgeous
Yeah you've got here a top quality music dork
I'm going to college to major in instrumental music education/performance. Going to be a teacher and a musician, so maybe someday you take a trip to Broadway and look in the pits hopefully you'll see me there
