The instruments I have experience with are guitar, violin, keyboard, piano and tin whistle. I received music lessons in these instruments throughout my childhood. Though none of these instruments are graded, I have an A in Advanced Higher Music with keyboard and voice being my two selected instruments. I also have an A in HNC Musical Theatre and an A in HND Musical Theatre. In HNC, I passed my Score Interpretation class where I learned theory skills such as intervals and sight singing. I believe that through all the various instrument lessons I have received, I have a good understanding of how to read sheet music, however I have always found that I have a particular strength in playing by ear. This skill enables me to listen to a piece of music or vocals and be able to play the piece on an instrument without using a score or sheet music, which has allowed me to become highly skilled in harmonising, improvising and composing. I also been in a band, allowing me to have great musical timing and focus, and have recorded an album, giving me experience with recording equipment and software.
