Well, I used to play the flute from 4th grade to 8th grade. I still play it occasionally, but outside of school.

The other instrument I play is the acoustic guitar. I'm not particularly good on it, but I can strum out a few chords. To be honest, I don't play guitar quite as much. Maybe three or four times a year. Same with my flute.

I also used to play the piano, but I didn't like it as much as my flute. Right now, I'm trying to learn how to play the harmonica. It really reminds me of the flute. Sort of.

I play the piano! I LOVE to play, it's like my favorite thing to do. Right now I'm trying to learn that song "Landed" by Ben Folds, it's an awesome song, but it's really hard. I don't know if any of you have heard of it.

I took keyboard/piano lessons for five years (stopping at the end of last year). I still play occassionally, but not as often as I used to. I've also had a few guitar lessons, but not enough to play any decent songs. I would love to learn a new instrument, something along the lines of the flute or clarinet - but I don't really have the spare time at the moment.

I play guitar, classical guitar, recorder (which I hate), and vocal chords *g*. For those of you who don't know what a classical guitar is, it's played on an acoustic guitar that's a little smaller than regular acoustics, and you play notes AND chords.

I used to play the cello, but I stopped because I didn't have time for lessons and practicing with my other extracurricular activities.

I have the uncanny ability to pretty much play anything you hand to me. I've played the flute for almost 16 years now and while in band we tended to swap instruments. I have a lot of fun with the trumpet. I've played the guitar since I was 16. I dabble with piano and drums as well....I say dabble because even though I've been a musician for 16 out of almost 23 years, I can only read flute music...everything else is by ear.

Um...well, I know how to play the piano pretty well. And if our school band was an orchestra I'd play the violin, possibly cello. But alas...it's not...so no string instruments T-T Instead I play the trombone...X3 Trombones do have a pretty sound though ; ; (if you can play it that is)

I actually play two instruments! The clarinet and the Tenor Saxophone. I play my clarinet in my schools band, and youth symphony. I play my tenor saxophone in my schools Jazz Band. I am pretty good at both, but I would have to say that my stronger instrument would be my clarinet. I was fourth chair last year, in my freshmen year of high school, i have to admit, that is pretty good. I just started learning how to play my tenor a few years ago, so the fact that I am first tenor in my schools second jazz band is good enough for me. I am still learning how to read jazz solos, the weird number and letter things, and play solos. Well, good luck to all you people on your instruments this year, lol. TTYL!

I play Clarinet. *struggles to pull of barrel of the clarinet*
It's actually kind of fun, I'm in the school band. This year, there is also going to be a school jazz band, and I really want to try out, but I think I won't make it.

*finally wrenches barrel off*
