Roland mentioned already that he plays the guitar and I know of others, too, who are active "music makers".
Perhaps we could found a BBO band? :)
I for myself play only a little bit of this and a little bit of that (parents had no money for single lessons, later I was too lazy or too tired to practise); I wish I would have been more serious in this area. So I tried out flutes, guitar, piano, percussion. What I do since many years is singing in a choir (church choir for a longer period and now the choir at university).

Maybe you could sing "Stille Nacht" for me then? Perhaps we could even perform together and make around 11€ a day from December 1-24! :)

Roland, come over for the "Kieler Woche" in june, we will definitely earn more B) Let's talk about the setlist :lol:
An important question is: what will we do when we are rich??

Not sure they will appreciate a Christmas carol in June, but it's always worth a try. When we get rich? Rich has little to do with money as I see it. As long as you are happy, fortune doesn't matter.

But when we earn so much money that we don't have time to spend it, we could always buy some island in the Caribbean with one hammock tied to two palm trees .... and a yacht of course so that we can reach Sabina Park Cricket Ground in Kingston, Jamaica, within an hour or so B)

I sing in the university choral society. Our concert is next weekend, we're doing Haydn Nelson Mass and Delius Sea Drift (quick plug for anybody in the Manchester area :rolleyes: ).

I used to do a lot of composing, mostly piano pieces and song settings (so that I don't have to persuade anyone else to perform them). Improvising at the piano is a great cure for stress. Sadly this doesn't happen much nowadays as there aren't any convenient practice rooms around here, but one of my main goals for the future is to own a piano as soon as possible.

As David_C knows, I play the piano fairly reasonably. Just wish I could take it to uni with me, as at the moment it doesn't get played from term to term.
