Age 27 and currently in second year of a music degree, I enjoy all styles and have a decent grasp on quite a wide range of music. My favored/strongest styles would be blues/rock, funk, gospel, hip-hop, fusion (e.g. Toto), reggae and many things in between.
I've found that having a decent grasp of music theory is very helpful in aiding quick and easy learning and writing of music. Basic music reading has been helpful too.
Apart from playing in some bands for this degree I have previously done a fair amount of solo acoustic performances and played in a country/alternative band for 2 years.
I also have home recording facilities and produce electronic music. Soundcloud: https://soundcloud/googlebob
