What is your specific interest in joining this group?

I'm looking forward to getting to know others in our rich community (Nevada City & Truckee) that love the same type of music as I do, and who have the same values in the profound effects that expressive creativity has on our growth as happy, healthy souls.

Do you play an acoustic musical instrument? If so, what do you play, and what is the level of your proficiency (Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, Professional)?

Yes! I play both piano & violin. I'm a novice, but a quick learner with LOTS of motivation & a relatively good amount of time to practice. Want to join my violin ensemble called "The Moaning Bovines"? :)

List your three top favorite genres (i.e. New Age / Windham Hill; Blues; Classic Rock; Folk; Bluegrass; Jazz; Classical; etc. etc.)

Shaddowfax, Montreux, Alex Degrassi, George Winston, Darol Anger, Michael Hedges, Will Ackerman, you know, THOSE folks!

What types of things might you be interested in attending or coordinating (Performances, Casual Jams, Concerts, Giving or Receiving Lessons, etc. etc.)? Also, please state if you would like to be made an "Event Organizer", to post your own events.

Finding others who would like to form casual jam sessions in the "Soft Jazz / New Age" genre like those of the musicians listed above (i.e. Windham Hill). Also open to some lessons (which I would gladly pay for), but these should be with the goal of playing together in small group jams or even duets, as I am already taking professional lessons in both violin & piano. If you are a musician and like the idea of creating a small jam especially of this kind, please do CONTACT ME - let's create a Friday night, Saturday or Sunday brunch, and I'LL SUPPLY THE FOOD! :D

If you like, place some links here to a few of your all-time-favorite acoustic pieces, either those that you like to play, would like to learn, or just like to listen to. Please separate links with a set of asterisks ********, as spaces don't show up

This is the piece that inspired me to go & purchase my violin, after an over 20 year hiatus. It's from the movie "The Straight Story" - a MUST see.
