I am a professional classical musician, private music teacher, & also love to play & listen to rock. I'm sarcastic, stubborn, weird (you have been warned), but friendly & laidback. I'm OBSESSED with music, & it's rare to find people into the same kind of music I am. I play flute in professional orchestras, & have also recorded rock music (click link above). I love playing both, I can't function without one or the other. I want to chat with other sarcastic music nuts, classical &/or rock music, so if you think we'd have a good deal in common, feel free to comment & you will most likely be added!
