Self-introduction!!!

Hi everyone!

Since this group is about learning composition from each other, I feel that it would be great if y'all could introduce yourselves in this group so that we could better learn from each other!

Probably just mention your composition experience/why and what (and how) you compose/instruments you play/hobbies/basically anything

So i'll start...

I recently graduated from high school last year, and I've been composing since around 12 yo. I started composition seriously in high school during my 'A' level music studies. I normally compose in the classical genre, ranging from Baroque to Modern styles, and I'm still in the pursuit to find my distinct aesthetic. Also I play the piano, and clarinet (self-taught), and own a couple of other instruments (including toy instruments) :)

(since i'm admin i shall pin this thread haha)

If you had to die...how?

Yea I admit, it's kinda morbid but I was talking about this topic with some friends and it was acc hilarious. So here's the question: If someone told you they are going to kill you, how and when would you prefer to die? I'll let a couple people answer before I let out my secret...

(Owner/admins if this is inappropriate, feel free to just tell me...I completely understand lol)

Welcome! Why don’t you introduce yourself? :D

Hey guys, welcome to Wolf Pack! Why don’t you take a moment to introduce yourselves?
Also, a thanks to AcousticRenegade for making this group! She’s our leader technically, so listen to her. ;P

Guess I’ll introduce myself.


I’m Jay, I’m a transcriber, arranger, singer, composer, and pianist. I’ve had piano lessons for 2 and a half years, and I’ve been self taught sense. I’m currently learning guitar too. I love making people smile, and I love to talk to people. :)

On czerny as a composer

I recently got a bit into listening to Czerny's etudes as actual compositions and it turns out a lot of them are quite elegant and beautiful. I feel like I have missed a whole world of piano music to listen to, because I was not taught to play art of finger dext nor any Hanon when I started out. The first piece titled ''etude'' that I started with was actually already Chopin's 25 no 1 and by then I already had quite the technique so I just felt like ranting a bit about how we should appreciate Czerny a bit more. It feels like he has just been neglected together with Hanon and Kabalevsky for being ''practice material''. 

Btw here is my latest composition, a mazurka in the style of late romantic composers:
