Thank you for all that wonderful information!  It is very interesting. 

What are your plans for the future?  Would you become involved in any of the family businesses?

I haven't actually ever been to the U.S., the only place in North America that I've been to is Vancouver!

LOL, yes, our family history is a bit complicated!

Bikerbraid, I choose not to become involved in any of the family business. My brothers will, though, once they return from university. I would like to be a music teacher for little kids (after April, I can start working to get my diploma for teaching!), and this is a profession that can be done anywhere in the world that I choose to live. There are many things I am interested in (excluding business, LOL!), and I would love to be a novelist, or a doctor, or a mathematician... but I am best at music and I simply love children, so I think this would be best for me!   Cheesy

Persuing a music career is wonderful.  What instrument(s) do you play?  You are right, music would give you opportunities all around the world.

I play four instruments: piano, violin, clarinet, and voice. I played guitar for a while too, but it didn't suit my tastes.  Cheesy

Oh wow!  I just started learning how to play the piano/keyboards.  And I mean *just*... last week!  I always wanted to learn and I desperately need something creative in my life other than LongLocks.  Since my hubby is a musician I managed to talk him into buying a really nice 76-key keyboard (it's way kewl, I can make it sound like anything from a grand piano to a harpsichord to a cello!).  The only problem is that he's more into underground music and I tend to lean more toward the Mozart/Nora Jones end of the scale (no pun intended), so I don't know how much playing we'll do *together*.  But hey, I can already play "Joy to the World", LOL!  Probably the easiest song of all time but I've even mastered the chords, woohoo!

I played the flute for years when I was a kid, but I never was very good.  I can already tell I'll be much better at piano.  Course, I *want* to learn now, which makes all the difference in the world.  It's amazing how fast things like reading music are coming back to me though, it's been almost thirty years!

What kind of music do you play Leia?  And how long will it take you to become certified as a teacher?

Trust me, if you wait until you have enough time, you will *never* do it!  I don't have any time but just a few minutes of practicing a day is already paying off.

I'm glad you've started to play the piano, Rapunzel! I've been playing for six years and I love it!

My diploma exam preparation can take anywhere from 1-3 years. After I take that exam I will be certified as a teacher  Grin

I love actual MUSIC music. Not like pop/rock/rap etc... I will listen to everything but I don't like to play everything. The occasional jazz is nice, though, especially on clarinet  Smiley! I guess what I like is more commonly known as "classical" music although I don't like to use that term because to me, that means music from the Classical Era, whereas I like music from the Baroque and Romantic too! (Okay, and some modern composers are great too, such as Debussy... love his music!)

Piano is an excellent learning instrument and is frequently the first exposure to music.  I started on the piano when I was 6, and although I "hated it", I am very greatful that I have that knowledge to fall back on now.  My piano experience allowed me to become a percussionist in school, which was a ton of fun.  I loved playing all the different instruments with all the different types of music (marching band, orchestra, jazz, concert).  If you really want to play the violin, you will probably find a way to pick it up and it will be much easier because of your piano background.

I'm with you Leia!  Though my husband scorns at me every time I call classical music "real" music, LOL!

I totally agree. Each instrument helped me learn the other, and since piano was my first, it helped the most! Oh and a little world of caution - when I started out on violin I was very nervous, therefore had tension in my body, and sounded AWFUL and scratchy! But my mother and my teacher never gave up on me, and one day I picked up my violin and out came a beautiful sound!  Cheesy So don't worry if it takes a while!!
