What style of music do you prefer to play? (eg. modern rock, jazz, country, etc.)

I'm not a musician and no longer have anyone in my life who is. So I'm seeking opportunities to "sing along" with those who are. I enjoy singing a variety of music genre, my favorites being jazz standards, show tunes, folk, and country ballads.

Who are some of your favourite musical influences?

My musical tastes are hugely diverse. I grew up in a very musical family and still love the music of my parents, from big band to jazz. I love the "Great American Songbook" ballads.

Do you sing?

I think I mentioned that.... I'm strictly amateur, but in the past have done jams, song circles, singing groups/choirs, karaoke. Have just gotten away from it in recent years, but I want to get back to some of it before the parade passes me by! The song circle format sounds like a great way for new people to break in to these jams.

What instruments do you play?

I just signed up for "play for enjoyment" piano lessons (August 2011), so we'll see....

How long have you been making music?

In my soul? Since day one, 2:45 a.m. May 25, Cook County Hospital......(we'll leave the year out of this).

Introduction

I guess you could say I'm "a singer of a certain age" trying to get more music into my life, while I still have some voice left. That involves finding places to sing as well as surrounding myself with others who also have "music in their soul."
