S. What’s your favourite Symphony? / i feel like i should have an opinion but i don’t

T. Trumpet, trombone, horn, or tuba? / horn easily

U. Music for university/career or hobby? / i’d like to say career but knowing me i’d probably lose my passion for it and besides it’s not realistic so it would probably end up as more of a hobby (albeit a hobby that’s a rather large part of my life)

V. Violin, Viola, Violincello, or Bass? / it’s a close battle between viola and cello but viola

W. Wagnerite, or anti-Wagnerite? / i like what i’ve heard of his music (emphasis on what i’ve heard) but apparently he’s an asshole who wrote 9 year long operas so idk

Y. Why do you make music? / if you’re expecting some sort of well written, deep response it’s not gonna happen. i do music bc i like it.

Z. What’s your sleep schedule like? / i usually get around 8 hours on school days and 9-10 hours on weekends bc i’m a weird person and need that much sleep to function

thanks for sending the ask!! sorry if i missed some or if i did more than you asked but i’m really tired
