Missed my first day of class. Oops. Bars are my favorite places to learn violin anyway.

Rose

Impressions of the first day, amazing but weird.

Rose
@myrosebyrose

One of the students, a pianist, is like a genius. Has a French name. Pierre.

Pierre
@smoothsyncope

Impressed is not a word I could use to describe the place I am going to live and learn my art in the next couple of years.

Rose
@myrosebyrose

There was another pianist, too, eccentric. She had pink streaks in her hair. Her name was odd. Maybe Japanese.

Rose
@myrosebyrose

This one guy kept falling asleep. A drummer. Had a kind of ringo-style grin.

Later that day…
Pierre
@smoothsyncope

I just ran into a hysterical woman. Had several chewed up pencils in her hair, different colored socks and smelled like alcohol.

Pierre
@smoothsyncope

She totally flipped out and started yelling so everyone could hear. So embarassing.

Talia
@violintalia

Almost BROKE MY WRIST cause some dooshbag was running up the stairs looking THE OTHER way!!

The next day…
Talia
@violintalia

OMG THAT GUFUS who nearly killed me on the stairs is the leader of my project group.

Pierre
@smoothsyncope

Life has its ironies. Turns out the hysterical woman I made a fool of myself in front of on the stairs is in my music school. Not only that, she is in my project group.

@colorchildacid

Our music project is led by composer and pianist Pierre. I've heard he's amazing.

Rose
@myrosebyrose

The french kid is the director and composer of our project. Maybe he isn't really French, but whatever.

Rose
@myrosebyrose

There was some visible tension between him and this new girl, a violinist.

Later that week…
Timothy
@timtimebeats

Our group leader, Pierre, is some kind of genius.

Ayako
@colorchildacid

The music Pierre composed for the group is amazing, deep, disturbing.

Talia
@violintalia

First, pompous Pierreyboy gave us this endless monolgue on his composition.

Talia
@violintalia

Then he gives us this totally impossible to read piece, with like a million different rhythms. And expects us to just play it without ever HAVING HEARD it.

Then…
Pierre
@smoothsyncope

Then came the first reading. Or should I say loose interpretation. NO. Not in the mood for euphemisms.

Pierre
@smoothsyncope

It's just devastating. The hysterical violinist doesn't even know HOW to read music.

Pierre
@smoothsyncope

The drummer can't keep a steady beat. The pianist turns everything into jazz.

Pierre
@smoothsyncope

We have a long road ahead of us…
