I don't currently play an instrument, but when I was in the fifth grade, I learned how to play the trumpet. I practiced with the few others in my grade who were learning to play an instrument as well.

Continued to play the trumpet for a little bit while in the sixth grade, but at some piont (beginning of the year, I believe), I switched over to the flute.

I continued to play the flute until the end of seventh grade.

After that, I went into chior and stayed in choir till the end of my sophmore year of high school.

Though, I have to admitt that I miss playing the flute and would absolutely love to get back into it.

oh boy where do I start??? Well When I was young My aunt taugh me how to play guitar then I stoped playing it fo 12 years. Then I moved onto piano I took basic lessons in grade 1-3 then stoped for a while I played Flute in grade 7 & 8 because the music teacher would not let me play the piano. In Highschool I started off in Piano then moved on to Alto Sax. In grade 11 I found my moms old classical guitar chilling out in our attic so I fixed it up restrung it and all and play that now. I also took guitar class which I bought a six string guitar for. My younger brother bought a left handed bass last summer but he doesn't play it much so I taugh myself how to play the bass left handed.

I play flute, piccolo, piano, guitar, and violin. I want to play the oboe and saxophone, but the flute will definitely always be my favorite. I also think I have a trumpet lying around somewhere... /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

Yes, I also sing.

But I love band... both concert band and marching band.

It all started with my learning the Violin... which I initially disliked ... but later on started having a huge attraction for... And then the absence of a Violin at my college veered my interests towards smaller instruments which can be easily moved around :-)... so I caught on to Harmonica / Mouth Organ. I play guitar and piano a little too.

I played the cello in 3rd grade, and I quit. I played the clarinet in 4th grade, and I quit. I really wished I played the piano and/or the violin. I like intstruments, and it's not too late to learn, but I'm very lazy.

Well, I'll admit, I'm not very flexible when it comes to playing different types of instruments, but I play a mean trumpet. I've lost count of how many years I've been playing (that, and I'm just too lazy to think about it), but it's been quite awhile. I used to play the piano but I quit out of sheer dreadfulness. I sucked, seriously.

I have been playing classical piano for about 6 years. I'm starting to get into jazz a lot more now. If my teacher gives me one more classical piece, I'm going to scream!! /blink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blink:" border="0" alt="blink.gif" /> /dry.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="<_<" border="0" alt="dry.gif" /> /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" /> /mad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":angry:" border="0" alt="mad.gif" />

I've been playing the piano for a few months now, and my piano teacher says I'm practically an expert already /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

It's pretty fun as well. I love how it's so versatile and you can make anything you want from it. Well..almost anything.

I play only the guitar, but it is enough for me. I would like to play the piano, I started to learn, but it was too hard with all those practicing... Ah, guitar is an universal instrument to play.
Especially for serenades!

I play the violin... For about... 5 years or so now. =) My school has this superb orchestra, and we went travel in Europe (I'm from Canada) during the spring break. /happy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="^_^" border="0" alt="happy.gif" />

Other than the violin, I know a little bit of piano... And I'll be taking up acoustic guitar soon~
