I'm starting the viola pretty soon. I'll start lessons by next week. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to playing the viola really well. I've tried other instruments, they didn't work out. However, something's telling me that the viola is the right match for me. I am musically, inclined, I do have perfect pitch. I started on the piano but had to give up taking lessons due to scheduling conflicts. I then transitioned over to voice. During middle school, I played the Clarinet and was the principle at the varsity band. However, during high school, the Clarinet just didn't seem fit for me. So I gave it up. 

I am studying orchestration as well. I am able to arrange music, so you can give me a PM should you desire me to arrange one. Here's a disclaimer: If it's copyrighted, I might not be able to do it. I also might not have enough time to arrange as well as I have other things on my schedule. Keep that in mind. Still, PM me should you have a request, and I'll respond with a yes, no, or wait.

We have quite a few violists here.  Good luck on your endeavor. I hope to hear you bowing happily soon.

Cheers.

Maybe we'll take you up on your offer for a project some day.

I lack time but am interested in promoting more group projects here.

I also have a habit of writing parts with disregard to the levels of playing. I want to make a project where every single person interested in participating will be able to partake. Parts at every level of playing. Even long whole notes or open strings for those who can't do much more at the moment.

Well, should you ask me to make sheet music, I'll keep that in mind. I was running through some ideas in my head to commemorate that just now.

Or here, but it will probably be easier to keep track of in the projects forum. Thanks

Having said that, are you fine if I post suggestions on what songs could be future projects?
