Well, my main instrument is the flute. I've played it for 1 year now (doesn't seem much, but I've improved a lot) ^^
Recently, I started learning the clarinet too... and I plan to learn cello someday xD

I currently play piano and oboe. I've been playing piano for a really long time, and oboe for three years. I used to play clarinet for three years, and guitar for one year. I also used to sing.
I would love to learn violin someday. Something about them just sounds pretty when you can play well.

My instrument would be the Great Highland Bagpipe, which I have played for some time now. I am lucky enough to have a "stand" turned circa 1920. I also play Native American Flute, though much, much quieter than my pipes, my flute is just as uplifting and fun to play, as well as a perfect counterbalance when I am in a more meditative mood.

I played the clarinet for about 4.25 years then after marching band season my freshman year in high school I switched to trombone which I played for 3.75 years. Other than that I can play the piano and some other band instruments like trumpet, french horn, euphonium, and flute. Well... if I had a fingering chart I could. I also love to sing, I sung in a choir for 4 years and I plan on taking voice lessons one of these days. I also would love to learn how to play the guitar.

I play the Guitar and have for quite a while but am a bit out of practice, and now have started playing the Bass and my Uncle made me one. I'm taking lessons for Bass and am really enjoying them. I really want to start learning Piano, one of my friends tried to teach me once but I think I would need proper lessons.

I can play the piano and the cello. I would love to learn a horn instrument, but I can't get my lips right. All I can get out is the horrible honking sound.

I've been playing classical guitar since many years. Nowadays, I am focusing into flamenco, have never thought it would be such a fun. I love Paco Pena's pieces.

I play the piano, the guitar, and the flute! The piano is the one I most like, then the guitar and the least I like is the flute. I have made performances with all of those three instruments. I have participated in Talent Shows, Graduations, Cultural Nights, etc. I have performed in piano a lot of songs. Some I can mention are: Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Bella's Lullaby, Love Story, Black Keys, Lamento Borincano, Obsesion, Deck the Halls, The Meadow, etc. In guitar I have performed a lot of song too but not as much as in the piano but I can mention: Love Story, Teardrops On My Guitar, You Belong With Me, Noviembre Sin Ti, Que Lloro, Boulevard of Broken Dreams, So What, etc. In flute I have only performed just one song and it is Impossible Dream.

I' addicted to music and I spend most of the time in front of my piano playing piano and guitar! I really love music! Music = Life! :)

I used to play the violin and was rather good at it. However, I stopped because I did not like my instructor and he made it not fun for me to play anymore, so I stopped. Then I moved and my new school doesn't have an orchestra, so I can't do it here anyway!

I play Piano and violin, and I also know a little bit about playing recorder. I used to own all three instruments, but I had to sell my piano as it was too bulky to move around with very much. However, I still have a violin and a recorder.

I play the piano and the guitar. I love them both. I have made a lot of performances in piano playing songs like: Aida March, Perfect, Love Story, The Star Spangled Banner, and a lot more. I have also made some guitar performances but not as much as piano performances. I play the piano since I was in 9th grade and now I'm on 11th. Most of my money have come from my piano or guitar performances. LOL

I've been playing the piano for about 10 yrs now. I mostly play classical songs, but lately I've been into the beatles and have been trying to find some sheet music for them. Last year I also started playing the tenor saxophone. It's great fun. :lol:
I spend hours practicing my piano - it annoys my family greatly... but I love it ;)

I use to play piano and keyboard, I still do play piano but only for fun :D . I also play steel pan/drum when they have them at school or when my family and I go on holiday (my cousin owns a set of steel pans). It's complusory in my school to learn guitar for a year, but I'm not very good.

Piano and violin. I personally prefer violin, I just love the sound! Except I'm convinced my orchestra teacher is a Legilimens, she stares at us in this creepy way if we play a wrong note, she quoted out of my mind once or twice, and I saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix lying open on her desk.

The only concrete instrument I play is guitar; been teaching myself how to play for about 5 years or so off and on. However, my main love in music is singing and will def be entering HOL Idol should it come back. :)
