Musicians Who Knit
I'm a musician. I've been a performing pianist, organist, and vocalist since the age of 15. For the past 11 years, I've been a piano teacher.

Anyone else in here also a musician?

Me too! Performed and taught for years and now enjoy many kinds of music from classical - medieval to modern - opera, etc. Especially enjoy chamber music and even include ragtime and jazz.

Music and knitting are mathematically based so I think it's not unusual to find creative people who enjoy both.

Yes! Other musicians!
Jean, I think you're right about the math correlation. And I think it works with computers too.

Musician here! I've played piano for about 19 years and I've been singing for 12. I currently teach private piano and vocal lessons and occasionally fill in as church organist in my community. Music is my first love, and when I'm stressed or upset all I have to do is play or sing and I instantly start to feel better.

Another musician!

So, have any of you knitted or crocheted a music-themed item? I'm wanting to make a tote bag for my music. And I'm interested in making a piano scarf also. The one with all the piano keys on it.

I'm also a musician. I play Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, French Horn, Tenor Sax, and Bari Sax, and I've been trying to teach myself Piano for the past year or so. :D

I actually really want to go to college to major in Music Education. I'd love to knit something music related once I actually get going.

I've been slacking off with playing guitar. I really should pick it up and get back into it again. Music always seems to soothe the soul and chase away the blues. I got my first guitar for my 50th birthday and taught myself to play. You really can teach an old dog new tricks.
