What instrument(s) do you use to write your music?

I would say mostly piano, although I don't feel proficient at it. I played flute for 10 years, and I had voice lessons, so those were my main instruments, and I don't feel profient enough yet to say I "play" piano; I can't play piano like I can sing or could play flute.

What comes easier for you - words or music?

Again I don't feel proficient enough yet to pass a judgement, but I would probably say words. As a kid I took lots of writing classes, and enjoyed writing short stories. While I got lots of music lessons, I didn't get music lessons that really taught me writing music.

Do you imagine yourself or someone else performing your songs?

A little bit of both. Again, my lack of ability or feeling like I lack ability to play a chordal instrument is a hinderence, but some day I would like to be able to perform my own music. I would also love to see someone else play my music.

Are you interested in collaboration or finding a songwriting partner?

I would love to have a songwriting partner. I find I feel like I am writing the same song over and over so a partner could really help to mix things up and get new ideas.

What areas of your music experience are you wanting to improve? e.g. songwriting, marketing, networking, recording, airplay, gigs, etc.

I would like more songwriting experience, and I would love to get some of those songs recorded into an actuallized publishable work. There is more that I would love to learn, but I think getting to the point of having good quality recorded material is more important right now. Then I have something to work with.
