what I am bad at ? probably social "skills".I was once on the rso negotiating committee,and it was suggested by management to get a clause in the contract regarding musicians cursing when they are outside on break,or before a concert,that it was a negative image for the orchestra...I said I went to Juilliard,last I checked, it's not a f**king charm school...haha !!
see,the reality is,classical musicians spend most of their lives in solitary confinement,...we call it the practice room.It's pretty hard to develop correct social behavior when you spend thousands of hours in a room by yourself...so,it's a miracle that some of us turn out nice....like me !!
Also, I have an exceptional sense of rhythm !
Music : I stay current on all styles.I love the Beatles,new age music to nap to,ocktoberfest music ( including polkas ! ),completely love the ragtime era,and spend a lot of time listening to and practicing the music of the greatest xylophone player of all time that lived in that era: George Hamilton Green,and love all of the opera music of Puccini ( Tosca,La Boheme,Madame Butterfly).
Food: Italian and Chinese are the favs
Movies: Chaplin,Godfather 1 and 2,Stanley Kubrick,Fellini
TV:all Masterpiece Theater ( love Downton Abbey),and love the brit crime shows.
best show in the history of TV: Breaking Bad
#2 my dog
#3 sex ( I sort of remember that I used to like it,hmm....)
#5 beer : Bass Ale
#6 naps ( somehow the afternoon siesta never caught on in America,but I started making it a daily ritual since my European touring days).
I spend 9 months of the year performing in front of crowds of people.When I have down time,I tend to want to stay home with my dog,have a fire going in the fireplace,have a beer while the roast is cooking,and yep,watch tv, or listen to anything but classical music.
I am a bit more outgoing in the summer.I have a little more freedom then.I do like going to wineries,antique shops,the outlets in Williamsburg...but haven't done much of that stuff in my single years.
I am very honest/up front with folks,so let me say : if you are prudish,you will hate me.My humor tends to be laced with sexual innuendo...and believe it or not,classical musicians ( especially percussion and brass players) tend to curse a lot.if interested, to learn more,watch the amazing movie "Orchestra Rehearsal" by the legendary Fellini.
