I can identify specific instruments in a piece of music, or in a video. I can provide information on how an instrument is used and the history behind it. This includes a large variety of instruments from all over the world. Asian instruments are my strong area, but I have a wide variety of knowledge on instruments in many other countries.

Experience in the area

I collect music from around the world. Part of my interest is a research into what gives that area's music such a unique sound, and in order to find that out, I have to be familiar with what instruments are used and the history behind them, so I have spent many hours doing research on my own time and learning about a large variety of musical instruments around the world.


1 year of music history classes (no degree), 3rd year of college for nursing.
