I live in the United States, in Southern California actually, and I speak English. I am taking Spanish classes, but I probably wouldn't be able to understand much.
What is my relation to music? Well, I am only in high school right now, but I am involved with the school's marching band (percussion section), jazz band, steel drum band, and concert band. I sing with a choir at my church, and I am learning the guitar. I am also an intermediate piano player. I really love music, I enjoy listening to music, reading about music, but mostly, I like to make music. Hence my involvement with all the aforementioned music groups.
I recently got a scholarship to Idyllwild Arts Summer Symphonic Band Program. I will be gone for 2 weeks playing percussion for 6+ hours a day.
My musical tastes do not stay in one genre, but rather, I like to listen to music that sounds good. That includes classical, rock, pop, alternative, broadway, dance, country, trance, blues, jazz, hispanic, electronic, christian, and countless others.

What do I plan to do here? Well, firstly, I want to do what most everyone is here for: download scores! But I would like to help with the place because I think its a great place with a great idea and great music. I wish this site the best of luck, and may it never come down again!
So, then that's enough about me. Have a nice day!
