    I play piano. I like to play jazz

    and classical. I am working on 2nd and 3Rd year lessons. I am not a natural. I have to work very hard to learn the songs but I'm not giving up. I enjoy it and it's just for my pleasure.

    Music Throughout Life...

    I grew up with a father who was a pretty incredible guy. I suppose there are a lot of people who idolize their dad, and I am no exception. My dad played a few instruments, but not professionally -- he was often the entertainment who played boogie-woogie piano at parties, and...

    Two years ago I started to take piano lessons.

    My piano teacher told me to go conservatoire so many times, but I only wanted to play the songs that I want to play; then she offered me free lessons to compose songs. She said she would take videos of me and download on youtube, then I freaked out(INFP), and I never went back...

    I've been playing cello

    for 10 years now, and I'm so in love. There's nothing better than music to express yourself. All of the blisters and gruesome practice hours are sooooo worth it in the end. I couldn't imagine my life without cello, and I don't want to. (Also, guys who play instruments are...

    I play the piano. Ie been learning loosely

    since I was about 5 years old. My grandma is a concert pianist and taught me how to sightread and how to listen to music. When I was little, I HATED the piano. It made me think of boringness, of songs I hated to hear, of all the "NO!"s I got while taking a lesson and the black...

    Piano is my instrument

    the upright bass, the cello, and the violin. Though, what I'm most experienced in playing is my beautiful violin. I attempted upright bass, but really not my thing. I've always wanted to learn how to play the piano and how to play the cello, but I haven't had the chance to...

    I play guitar and bass,

    but recently I've had very little time to play. My puppy is afraid of the sound that my acoustic guitar makes, so I can't play much anymore. Has anyone been in a similar situation? How do you cope and keep up your "skills"?

    I play four. Well, one is my voice.

    I used to sing lead in three different bands when I was young. I also play the guitar, the piano/Yamaha keyboard and the flute. I love music and being an active part in not only listening to it, but playing the instruments as well.

    What else is nicer than to express the own

    feelings in music? I play different types of flutes and a little bit piano. But my most favourite instrument is my harmonium (the ancient form of the piano). Whenever I want to express my feelings my harmonium is ready for me. :-)

    cornet, tuba, trombone, oboe, flute, percussion, Piccolo, French horn, voilin, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, electric guitar, ukulele, and tenor sax. I've learned all these in 6th and 7th grade from my favorite teacher Mrs. Flores. I can say I'm a band geek.
