Although I have never fed myself with music I am a fairly accomplished amateur musician. I began playing the trumpet in the third grade. I played with the North Carolina School of the Arts Youth Symphony for six years, I attended the Governor's School in North Carolina as the principal symphonic trumpeter, and I have played in a wide variety of amazing venues including the Kennedy Center, Stratford Hall, and Camden Yards.
I also play the guitar, although I am not sure if it is really a skill. To be honest, I am surprised no one has ever snatched my axe from me mid song and pulled a Pete Townshend on it.
