I think music is one of the greatest joys of life and everyone should try to incorporate it in theirs. I've been playing classical oboe and rock/jazz drum set since early 2017, and began playing DCI-style marching percussion during the summer of 2021. I don't have much musical experience other than jamming with friends, practicing by myself, and playing in my school band, but from it, I've concluded that music is one of the most valuable things in my life. I've also toyed around with some music composition and music production in a DAW, and I've made a simple lo-fi hip-hop song with Garage Band. I definetely want to look more into composition, production, and maybe even write some real songs :)

I'm a big fan of jazz music, especially big band, fusion, and Latin styles as well as bossa nova. I also occasionally listen to rap/hip-hop, indie and rock music. Some of my favorite artists/bands are:
