I am a registered nurse with a fervent interest in all music new and old. Anything that sounds good to me is the basic criterion for me to determine that a given piece of music is ‘good’. And while I share a preference for new music I may at times write about any music that moves me. I am mostly self-taught in music and music history and this is a hobby which gives me a great deal of satisfaction.
My posts here are intended only to express my opinions for better or worse. I selected the title ‘New Music Buff’ to connote the informed but casual enthusiast/consumer. I consider myself to be an educated listener. I am open to corrections and comments so that I can fill in any knowledge gaps and learn new ideas. I attend concerts and performances whenever schedule and finances permit and wish to share my impressions for the sake of public exposure and discussion. I hope I can provide a useful perspective.
