I started playing euphonium at the age of 11 in a local school wind band. Moved on to community/ amateur bands where I eventually converted to Bassoon.

Wind band/ brass band is where my heart is.   :)

Double Bass player here.  I've been playing with school orchestras and amateur groups since I was 12 years old.

"Finale composer" here! Though I have a midi keyboard and use it to invent/develop melodies/motifs, no real playing skills!

I play the piano -- have since I was about 12.  I played clarinet in school bands, but haven't touched one in close to 45 years.

I was a guitar player, trained as a jazz guy but mostly did pop gigs of various genres, but I haven’t touched one in many years now. I played the drums in my youth (and wasn’t bad for a self-taught teen)  and dabbled in a number of other instruments over the years - flute, soprano sax, bass, clarinet - but was never serious about any of them or in any way accomplished. At one point I had some very rudimentary piano skills, but those days are long gone now too. I guess now I play the mouse and keyboard.

I am primarily a woodwind player who can (or least in my younger days could) pretend to play some piano.

Greetings from warm, tropical Panamá.  I'm inside for a nice agua de pipa (fresh coconut juice) and check to see what you all are up to.  Then, back to the garden to harvest leeks for an outstanding dinner tonight (my Serbian wife is preparing another chef d'oeuvre). 

I'm curious about the instrumental demographics of this group (in terms of primary instrument).  Mostly keyboards?  Are there any guitarists (other than myself), double bass, hurdy gurdy  ;), trumpet players?  I hope this question isn't inappropriate, just a means of me getting to know the compose forum proletariat better....

Peace, friends

I definitely don't have the expertise/experience to accept a challenge in reharmonization but could try my hand at a short-ish passage (it takes me forever to write anything) for learning and fun.  :)
