it's all about the music

Name: Amy
Age: seventeen, but i'll be eighteen on the seventh
Location: tallahassee, florida
Intrument played: steel pan
Skill level: high
What you like about this instrument/why you chose to learn it: these instruments are amazing, nothing produces a sound such as theirs. they are increadibly fun and challenging. i chose to learn pan beucase my school offered a class.
Favorite genre of music: indie
Favorite genre of music to play: latin/soca
Favorite piece to play? and why?: pan in a minor -- it is a panorama chart [panorama is this big pan competition in trinidad, where pans were created, where bands of 100+ members compete. the pieces they play are 10+minutes and exceedingly challenging.]
Favorite composers: for pan: lynn boogsie sharp and mighty sparrow/ in general: aaron copeland
Why do you think youre a hot musician?: oh i hate questions like this, i'm really modist, but i'm pretty dang good at pan.

oh--this was an LJ icon at one time. this is the only picture i have of me playing my pan...after the little pic that says "lion steel" there is a picture of me playing a set of two pans and then a boy with some kind of white hat on -- sorry its a terrible picture, it's hard to get good ones.
