That's not the point of the post...everyone I know that's graduated said they learned more on the job than they did from college...

But really, you should be watching. And at the very least, be able to tell when the rest of the band stops playing.

Oh no I'm not saying that it's right, I'm just saying it's also annoying when they cut you off in the middle of a climactic part of the piece or in the middle of that 100 note run.

In my opinion, playing a musical instrument is a talent. That's why I posted this.

Thank you for your clarification. I agree with you. Now, I'm done arguing with this person. :)

The poster did not say "they have talent" they said "they have A talent". Which can be taken to mean they have a hobby or activity they enjoy doing. Like i said, I don't know the poster and I'm not a mind reader, so if the poster feels like clarifying, that's up to them.

However, my hobby is sleeping and seeing as I'm human and it's 1:41 in the morning, I'm going to bed so that I can get up and work tomorrow to continue to make money and be a productive member of society. Good night.

-shrug- go by what you will, and so will I.

From my understanding and interpretation of the original post, I gathered that the poster was trying to say that at least we have a hobby and something that we're trying for to better ourselves. But, seeing as I don't know the poster and I'm not a mind reader, I don't know the original intent. Perhaps they'll weigh in.

This is exactly why I don't tell people I play the piano & guitar.
1) What OP said.
2) They'll try playing my instrument and just end up destroying it.

Lol I play oboe (and a bunch of other things) and my oboe is made out of rosewood. People seem to have an attraction of wanting to try the oboe and are particularly attracted to mine because of it's pretty rosewood color; not your typical oboe color. All the more reason for me to want to protect my baby O.o And my reeds ><

Meh. I can go into all of the different philosophies I learn about in my music education methods classes but I don't really feel like it.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/talent

Talent can be a natural ability, but it is also defined as a capacity for achievement and a synonym listed is capability. I'm tired from rehearsals all day so I'm not sure where I'm going with this but I'll be sure to return to this in the morning if I feel like it.

Not everyone can learn, though. No matter how hard my mother or some of my friends try, they don't understand how to read the music or can't put reading together with the skills. And, TBH, there's only a certain point that talent can get you to before you have to put work into it as well. Often times, once people who are talented are met with a challenge, they quit because they don't have the perseverance and work ethic somebody who's had to work to be good has.
Also, how does somebody know if they're talented if they've never tried something? I could be born with the innate ability to ward off polar bears but I'll never (hopefully) have the chance to use that talent...idk...random analogy.
Last note, do you play any instruments?

The website says age of consent, which is also what I said, but I guess sometimes the age of consent is 18.

That's utterly **** up.

Yeah, if you're not at the age of consent, it's considered statutory whether it's forced or not. The age of consent is usually 18 in the US. I'm glad Canada has more sense than America though >< as par the norm...

Is it really like that though? Anyone under 18 can't date an 18-year-old even if they're 17?

They can date as long as they're not having ****. Here's a link about the law http://www.sexlaws.org/what_is_statutory_rape
It's fine if nobody cares but I my mother's friend's son now has to register as a ** offender for the rest of his life because he was having ** with his girlfriend and her stepmother wasn't ok with it even though her and her father didn't care. She brought him up on charges of statutory and, sadly, the woman usually wins in these sorts of cases.

Which it is. Why is Christmas a federal holiday? And I don't see "In Allah we trust" on our money.

Christmas is a federal holiday because there are so many people who do observe it would be pointless to not have the day off. Also, it's been tried to be turned over several times, but nobody is going to vote on that because who doesn't like a paid day off? And Allah is a G-d moron. I don't see "In Jesus we trust" on our money either.

Except that an 18 year old and 17 year old can date perfectly legally... I know that in Canada the law is 5 years from age of consent.

It has absolutely nothing to do with the current president. In case you don't recall, the original intent of these comments was about the US being a Christian nation.
