The Music Tag of....Musical-ness. Yay!

Hi :)

Okay, now that's over and done with, let's get on with the actual post!

Ze Rules
1. Thank the person who tagged you.
2. Answer the questions.
3. Tag others.
4. Add you own question to the tag for your nominees to answer.
5. Include the rules in your post.

Thanks Clare for tagging me!

Do you play any instruments?

Yup! I can play the clarinet, violin (still learning that one though, but it doesn't sound like cats dying anymore thankfully) and sort of piano... Meaning I can only play one song (both parts)... Yah.

(It's 'Ode To Joy' if you were curious.)

What is your favourite music genre?

Uhhhhm... To be honest, I don't really know? I think the music I listen to mostly has a jazzy/pop feel to it. I also like sound tracks and musicals...Especially stuff like 'Les Mis' and 'Phantom of the Opera'.

I can't really pin down an absolute favourite.

Is there a music genre you absolutely cannot stand?  

Rap music. Okay- in some songs I don't mind it, but only because there's just a tiny amount and when it does come on, I just stop singing. No big deal, I know the best part of the song is just around the corner... I can wait.

What is your favourite way to listen to music? (CD, vinyl, MP3, radio, etc)

MP3. Definitely. CD's aren't too bad though I guess... until they get broken.

What/who are your three favourite bands/singers?

Oooh, tough one! All time favourite or just the ones that are my current favourites? 
Also: Do they have to be in a band and/or a singer? 

...In order to be able to answer this question I'll just guess 'no' to the last one.

No. 1 - Lindsey Stirling,

No. 2 - Mandisa,

And finally,

No. 3 - Britt Nicole.

Some honourable mentions are Pentatonix and Owl City :)

And now for Clare's question! :D

Do you have a funny story to do with playing music or band, if so please share it?

Mawhaha..Yes I do.

So this happened at a town band practice... We had stopped in the middle of a song (I can't remember which one, sadly) because no one was really paying attention to the dynamics of the song.

The band conductor asks if any one could hear the flutes and clarinets, since we had the melody.

And basically...

An elderly man grumbles behind me: I couldn't hear any of them!

Fellow clarinet player whips around in her seat: *jokingly* That's because you're deaf!

Elderly man leans forward slightly: What?

Fellow Clarinet player: Ha!

She then grins and elbows me in triumph.

I thought it was hilarious.

The End.

Oh wait, I still have to tag people? Erm... Okay. *Tries to think of people I can tag* ....Um, nope. No idea. Therefore, I shalt just leave it open for whoever stumbles across my blog and wants to give it a go. Yah, have fun :)
