    I'm not sure if this belongs here but...ok...lol

    I play the piano (10 years), violin(6 years), harmonica(2 years), and I TRY to play the guitar(6 months) but I'm afraid I'm still learning...

    I used to play the flute for about 3 years but I gave it up...I don't like instruments that you have to blow into lol...well except the harmonica...I can play that with my nose lol...its a hit at parties :) j/k

    I remember writing this before... maybe it was on another site. Oh well. I can play the piano, even though I don't take lessons anymore, and I've been playing flute since grade 6. Flute is definitely the best instrument ever, in my opinion.

    i used to play the clarinet...i played for 2 years, and then quit because my fingers weren't long enough, so it was just useless to try. i loved playing though...and then, after that i played piano for about a year and then my piano teacher quit...i think she found a better job or something...but i enjoyed piano too

    Well....I played percussion for about 3 years, but I hated it, so I quit band when it came to highschool, lol.

    I would have been much better off playing the flute...who knows why I didn't!

    I played the trombone for 3 years, but I'm switching to the saxaphone. I tried guitar and piano....but I just didn't have the motivation to keep it up, so I don't play it. I'm pretty average. I don't really stink but I don't excell either. I'm pretty middle-of-the-road-ish.

    hmm, i first played the b flat clarinet ( :LOL: after all this time i still remember) when I was in i think 2nd or 3rd grade, i think i quit in 4th because i didn't like it (i wanted to play drums instead, but the music dude thought it best i do clarinet), then i started piano in when i was in 5th grade, but my teacher got engaged and moved inner city when i was i think in 7th grade, i didnt get taught theory, and back then i was sometimes lazy to practice *oops* :LOL: but this year i've started drums and percussion stuff, and maybe even guitar, right now im motivated to do more stuff in music, don't know why, but as long as im having fun, i'll keep going
     
  17. ohhh Flute! the best instrument in the world! I"ve been playing 3 years now, started in grade 7, i've taken keyboarding lessons when i was 5 and then i quit after a year because i started school. Now though if i have music i play it even if it takes me forever to get it right. That's what summer's for right? ;) but Flute, i love it! except our advanced band plays rediculously hard music, if any of you played the whole William Tell Overture some of the flute parts are crazy, you just can't play 8 bars of sixteenth high C, B natural, D, then back to B natural again! it's impossible i tell you! or maybe i just suck.... eh. *shrugs* oh well i'm still learning. And hopefully i get a piccolo for my b-day Every one cross your fingers for me!!! :D
