From the photo, I enjoyed finding the elusive whole sand dollar at Seaside.
My early musical years were spent playing violin and singing. In middle school, I switched to the cello and enjoyed that fantastic instruments through my teens. I was the lucky recipient of quality voice training during Madrigal and general choir then too. Something I use most from any musical lessons I took. I remember a cello instructor's concerned look when I picked up a guitar in that time frame (we may lose him...), much to my surprise.
Finance, Accounting and Software Engineering occupied my college studies, resulting in Bachelor of Science (BS) and Philosophy Doctorate (Ph.D.) Degrees. Interestingly enough, a friend studying Electrical Engineering found music theory, and having to learn piano on the fly impossibly difficult compared to EE. I enjoyed EE classes too, though they could be time consuming and rewarding, they never compared with the resources spent learning or payoff from playing a concerto (even if it is only with music-1).
Guitar became my instrument of choice once my college studies were complete - and my 'Classically trained pianist turned metal-head guitarist turned software engineer' friend from school helped me pick out an electric guitar. I like em all - electric, nylon and steel acoustic, bass. Just plain fun.
