I'm an 18 year old, newly graduated musician in need of a group of people who wouldn't mind coming with me on my shenanigans in the music world. Art is my forte, so I live in movies, books, poetry, paintings, and most importantly music. I was published in my school's poetry anthology and I started a band called "The Welcoming Committee" that played Alternative Rock, Classic Rock covers. I'd want to find people who are open to experimentation and willing to work with original songs. I aspire to join the Citrus College Jazz program and travel a bit.

I started playing music in the 5th grade and carried the Alto Sax till sophomore year, where I switched to Baritone in marching band. That same year, i started playing the Trombone in my schools award winning Jazz Band, also where I learned the concepts of improvisation and expression. I did the same my junior year, where I also took up playing the guitar and bass in my spare time. In my senior year, I left marching band and devoted my time to jazz band, playing the Bass Guitar. That same year, I started a band and played the talent show on the bass. I also took up the drum-set i my final year of high school.
In Total:
5 years on the Alto Saxophone
3 years on the Baritone
2 years on Trombone
2 years on Guitar
2 years on Bass
1 year on the Drum-set

I'd prefer to play guitar and bass. I can play Alternative Rock, Blues, Swing, Funk, Latin, and I'm open to new stuff.
