If yes - which? And why did you choose the ones you play?

I play clarinet in an orchestra (I used to have lessons and got to around grade 4-5ish standard, still wanted to play but didn't really want to progress, so quit lessons and now just play in an orchestra), teach myself piano and have lessons in trumpet&cornet. I'm really looking into trying violin, bassoon or harp. :D

I play:
Guitar
Piano
Clarinet

I haven't played the clarinet in awhile, because I hate the noise it makes when you play it wrong.

Did I mention the studio I learned it in was all echo-y? Ugh! :x

Guitar, keys, accordion, cornet, uke, banjo, bass, anything really.

It is my special interest so I'm in love with making music.

I play guitar and banjo. There are many more instruments I wish I could play! (Upright bass, tenor banjo, piano, Appalachian dulcimer, mandolin...)

I'm thinking of picking up the cello as well :)

Piano, but only one-handed. But I can play over 400 songs. I've been playing songs since I was 4. My mum used to teach me.

I only play piano. Years of typing fast have developed my motor skills to the point where I can actually play it reasonably well. I basically suck at everything else, though, and I have a lot of problems with some things on the piano as well (different rhythms in different hands).

Overall, though, I am very happy with the piano. In fact, I started looking more in-depth at AS because of a conversation about it at a piano forum.

A little piano? A mini piano or you're only slightly skilled?


I play guitar, alto sax, and piano.

Although I can only play the piano with one hand, I am excellent at making up songs using drums in the background on my piano-keyboard. I should download some onto Youtube (but I will disable all comments though because I bet I would get horrible youths putting horrible comments about me).

I learned to play the trombone from 5 to 8 grade-ish, but I was not good at it, perhaps because I'm clumsy at playing any instrument inherently. I just can not follow the notes, I forget and pause too much, and my arms and fingers stutter too...

But, I enjoy blowing my harmonica sometimes, whatever wrong happens to come through it. :D
