Yay, everyone who chimed in last week! Thank you all for speaking up!

This week's question:
Last week, we talked about what music we're making. This week, let's talk about the music we wish we were doing more (feel free to add 'and why' or 'and why it's not happening right now' or whatever else you want to that, but don't feel obliged.)

I am attempting to learn the piano but do not have enough time to practise properly.

Oh, I'd love to be writing songs... I've been dreaming intensively about doing that for many, many years now, and I still feel like I'm still a rookie in piano playing... Such an awful feeling!

I've just began taking piano lessons again, and I'm doing GREAT this time, 'cos my teacher is awesome, not a drunk closet-case... The lessons are all based on improvisation, and each class I receive new notes, chords and sometimes full scales to improvise. It's been AWESOME... I already have two chords and can play almost the entire Dorian mode scale, as well as two pentatonic scales and the whole-tone Hexatonic. Now I just wish I could put lyrics and I knew how to make it happen. I feel just SO BLOCKED!!

I would like to be doing some kind of ensemble playing, but I seem to be living in a 'music desert' - no one around that I could 'jam' with.

I would like to be improving my tenor sax playing, but I'm waiting for a carpal tunnel operation. The descant recorder is my saviour at this time - totally different sound, but at least I can hold the weight of it!

I would love to be doing more orchestral-type instrumental music. Can't do it because I don't have the time for another ensemble, but boy do I wish it. That and four/six-part mixed voice chorus. SSA is great, but can only take you so far.

I didn't answer last week's question because I haven't really worked on any music since last fall. What I like to do now is work on some short instrumental pieces to get back into it. That's basically how I started out, just working on short pieces a couple of hours every night, just experimenting with no real commitment.
