Barry had a great idea that we get to know each other better by creating a standard 20 or so question form designed to get to know each other better.

Reply to this topic to suggest some question ideas for the standard interview that we will use.

I'll start with:

How long have you been playing the violin?

How often do you play?

What do you feel that your proficiency on the violin is?

Your greatest personal experience in with playing?

What other instruments do you play?

When we are done with this we could also post this information on our own profiles here.

This is a great idea...I'll participate. Seems lots of people don't reveal their location so where were you born and raised and where you live now type of question would be cool. I don't know if political or religious beliefs would be in order because those subjects always seem to get blown out of proportion when people talk about them.

What we do for a living? Our age? (ok that might not work for some;-)

What type of violin training?

Good idea!
Who else plays instruments/sings in your family?(You can rephrase this).          Are you a member of any other forum?
Are you a member of any orchestra or have you participated in any public performance?

I think the idea is awesome. I think all the questions are great. I can't seem to come up with any more. But it would be great to get to know everyone I bit better.

I really like the interview idea. We could have a featured member of the week (or something) for those who choose to participate.

Oliver, MGN, David Burns, pky, Barry, Daniel.....

I'll grab the suggestions at the end of the day and make a mock up questionnaire.

Barry. thats true.  but since the survey was to learn about the members i thought it would be a good idea to know people's faiths, since faith usually plays an integral part in who a person is.  but i see your point.
