Favorite bands :
There's way too many to name, plus I go through genre cycles. One week I'm into Nile the next I could be listening to Portal or something. It all depends.
Favorite guitarists :
Does my boyfriend count? :p
Favorite bassists :
I'm really picky when it comes to musicians. There are a lot of fabulous bassists, but there's a specific tone I like so my favourite bassist would have to be Stu Hamm. Although Tosin Abasi plays extended range guitar he uses a lot of "bass" techniques and I like his playing style when it comes to low-range, too.
Favorite books :
I've also been a bookworm since I was like 5... to the point where I catalogue all of my books, so there's no way I can list all my favourite reads. (plus I suck when it comes to remembering titles)
Favorite tv :
Walking Dead. nuff said
Favorite movies :
Harry Potter series, M, Act of Valor, Heartbreak Ridge, Blackhawk Down, Saving Private Ryan, War Horse, LOTR, The Avengers, The Notebook, Tenacious D and The Pick of Destiny, Les Mis, Pitch Perfect, Tangled, POTC, Nightmare before Christmas, The Pianist, Wall-E, Red Riding Hood, Finding Neverland, Catfish, Tropic Thunder, etc (I have a pretty eclectic taste)
I'm currently studying music therapy, and am looking to specialise in paediatric palliative/hospice care. My primary instrument is flute, which I have been playing for 11 years now. I picked up bass guitar in 7th/8th grade and have been playing ever since. Recently I picked up guitar because as a SMT I have to be proficient on guitar! And turns out, I fell in love with playing guitar as well. Music has always been a major aspect of my life. I was involved in as many ensembles as possible in elementary school and middle school and went on to graduate from a performing arts high school. I started composing short melodies for myself to play on flute in 5th grade and started taking composition classes in high school where I eventually got to wrote for Yale's graduate percussion trio. I love composing (especially atonal music), but I haven't been composing as much lately ever since I started college (my major is way too demanding to allow for free time lol).
