    I played the flute since I was in the 5th grade. By the time I was in high school, I had competed in All city and All state band competitions, solos, duets, trios, and quartets. I took private lessons from the 1st chair flute player in the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. When I was a senior I toured Europe with a group of students from all over the United States. I was 2nd chair flute. Or to put it modestly, the 2nd best in the country! I will never forget my music days.

    Yes I have and also took it a little further. I recently landed a deal to have my song called "Wake Up" on a movie soundtrack. The whole plug came from a connection on Facebook. The upcoming movie is called "Don't Shoot I'm the Guitar Man" I am humbled and blessed to have this great opportunity. I traveled from Kansas City, Mo. to Oakland California to record the song last Nov. @ Fantasy Studios with the legendary Chief engineer Michael Rosen.

    Sadly no. It seems like those musical instruments are not fond of me and my own voice doesn't sound so good to be perfectly honest. So i think i made the wisest decision by not engaging myself in such public activity, like joining a competition. It would completely kill my self-esteem if i join such competition and i get a big fat NOOO from the judges or the audience. So I'd rather keep this tiny bit musical capabilities i have, like singing out of tune, to myself.

    I have never competed in a music competition, but I know people who wanted to try out. I don't think I would ever have the nerve to compete in the competition. I don't have thick enough skin to do something like that.

    The last time I participated in a musical competition I was in middle school and I got second place. I don't think the singing part/rapping part and being on stage part is my thing in music, I think if I was ever to get involved with it I'd more of the writer than anything else.

    I participated in music competitions when I was in primary school. I remember one time when we were to go for a competition and I had tonsils. My music teacher allowed me to go with the group even though I was not going to sing.

    When the time came for the group to be on stage, I started crying to be allowed to sing. My music teacher agreed to let me sing. I heard one of the judges comment and say that girl (me) had been crying. We still managed to go to the next level. Today I enjoy singing in the shower.
