Hi :]

Hey, I’m Clem :] I’m a musician and I play trumpet, drums and piano, but I also love to compose! I like watching shows like Super 4 and Pokemon XY/XYZ, playing Minecraft, playing in brass bands and baking sometimes. I’m visually impaired and have autism + ADHD, and sometimes I struggle to socialise (but I’m trying!) I’m going to uni this year to study either music composition or practical trumpet (I’m still unsure) and I’m a bit nervous tbh.

PS. I’m abysmal with technology and have no clue how this website works lol, it all feels a little overwhelming right now but I’m sure I’ll get used to it :]

    Good to have you here @MadLadMusician! Nice intro. Have to say at first I misread 'practical trumpet' as 'political trumpet' and was about to be VERY curious about that haha.

    Welcome to the community and if you have any questions, feel free to ask over in the Help Desk and either one of our regulars or a moderator will help you out. :)

    I used to play drums myself and just came out of a BIG Minecraft phase. There are a lot of ND folks and musicians here so no doubt you'll fit in well!
    All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    Hey hello and welcome to the community Clem! Hope you can comfortably settle down in this totally not crazy place ;)

    I can sort of play the piano, and I really wish I could play the drums. Its really impressive you can play all these instruments!

    But anyways, its nice to meet you. Take care :)

    welcome Clem, it's great to have you here with us. it sounds like you're a very musical person - the most I can do it like 2 songs on a recorder.

    hope you settle in here nice and easily and we look forward to seeing you on the boards more

    @MadLadMusician Welcome to The Mix!! Wonderful to have you here.

    Uni can be so exciting, I am sure whatever you decide to study you will love it. I've always envied those who can play an instrument, I think it is so clever!!

    When I first joined The Mix I found the website to be quite confusing too but you will quickly get used to it. If you ever need any help navigating the website don't hesitate to ask any questions.

    Look forward to seeing you around! <3

    Hey @amy02 I think my favourite thing to bake currently is shortbread biscuits lol, but I got diagnosed with coeliac (can’t have wheat flour) last month so still altering my recipes. What about you? :]

    Hi @MadLadMusician welcome =)
    I used to play the trumpet back in high school, I especially loved when we did jazz pieces, do you have a favourite genre you like to play?
  • MadLadMusicianMadLadMusician Posts: 4 Newbie
    Hey Matthew, yeah, I’m mainly a classical trumpet player actually, but I also really like jazz lol. I think anything late romantic period onwards in terms of classical music is my favourite genre lol :]
