Musical Adventures

Guys, guys, guys! Lydia is taking over my blog while I'll be chilling on couch & wasting my time on reading Black Friday deals in inbox. I'm a big fan of Lydia's musical adventures. Go give it a read!
Hey there! I'm Lydia from Journals of a Piccolo Pixie, glad to meet you all :) I'm so excited to be sharing my musical story with you all today, we're going to have such fun!

It all started when I was three years old and was put in for ballet classes at our local dance school.
Showing off my pointed toes!

I love dancing, so I took every opportunity I had to dance, including the first show my dance school did.

Practicing my ballet dance aged 5

My family and I are all very musical. Both parents play the piano a little, my mum plays the flute and my dad plays the guitar. So I've been able to play the piano and the recorder at least a little since the age of five. When I turned ten, I got flute lessons through my primary school and played on my mum's old flute. At that point we were living in Attleborough in Norfolk, England and so when we moved back up to Edinburgh I got private lessons for a year before getting lessons through my high school when I moved up. When I switched to school lessons, I got private piano lessons, which thrilled me. I love playing the piano. You can do so much on it! There's a million and one different style of playing and you can play with other people too. Such fun...

Not long after I started high school, my mum and I auditioned for a pantomime with a local theatre company and got in! We were both in the chorus, and had such fun taking part. That show lead to another and another and another... And now I've participated in five (and a half) pantomimes and musicals with the same theatre company. I made so many friends through doing that. So many who have encouraged me to keep going with all my music and dance and acting stuff.

So I did.

When I came to uni, I joined the Glee Club. Our Glee Club is incredible! The people in it are amazing, the songs we do are incredible, and the rate and standard to which we work is unbelievable. I am so, so lucky to be involved with the Glee Club, they're such an amazing bunch of people.

As well as being in the Glee Club, I joined the Choral Society (just a fancy name for a choir), the concert band and the flute choir.

So that's where I am in my musical journey. I hope to keep it going pretty much for the rest of my life... Music is such a big thing for me, I don't think I could live without it.
Now the biggest fun part, Lydia is giving away fun Scottish Goodies to one lucky reader of my blog. Enter this easy peazy giveaway!
