    I can play several instruments

    and still adding some on my list. This recent one I am picking up is just so challenging yet worth it. What a dream come true.

    I taught myself how to play the guitar

    and the piano thanks to the internet and a few musician friends. It's a great thing to be proud of

    But I still have a lot to learn.

    I learned the violin on my own for the most part, but I think I should also take lessons.

    I am in band and the original instrument I was
