Which would be no one here. ;) Although, in some sense, I'm still a beginner even though I've been listening for 13 years as I'm constantly finding new composers to explore and I hear new things in works that I thought I knew like the back of my hand.

How tender indeed. Here what there are is die-hard followers of such an eclectic range of stuff.  ;D :P
Music is life, and like it, inextinguishable.

I love the vast surface of silence; and it is my chief delight to break it.

To be nerdy is a blessing, IMHO.

But it can make conversation more challenging at times.

A very valuable addition to the "Classical Music for Beginners" board since this is the place for visitors who are New to classical music? and who  Need to find out more? .  I wish I knew of that link when I was teaching music. I can think of a number of possible ways I could have made use of it.
Men profess to be lovers of music, but for the most part they give no evidence in their opinions and lives that they have heard it.  ~ Henry David Thoreau
