I've been playing violin for 8 years and clarinet for 3 and I mess around on the ukulele :)
I mainly play classical music but enjoy playing jazz and spanish stuff as well.

from age 12 onwards i played some variety [treble, alto, bass, contralto] clarinet, or tenor/bass tuba, string bass, organ- but i wasn't really good at any of 'em, in fact i was never better than mediocre even on a good day. i was always best at playing the radio :mrgreen: my only real talent is perfect pitch, which helps me in my audio restoration work.

I started with piano but was never able to coordinate my left hand. Clarinet was way easier but I couldn't do anything with it. Then I taught myself guitar, which I play almost every day. I also taught myself some drums and bass, but I mainly play rock guitar.

i'm a brass player; specifically, the euphonium.
i have mastered the instrument to the point where i'm first chair in the band i'm in, and we play 1st division, the highest possible for non-professional musicians

would you kindly tell me the difference between a euphonium and a baritone horn?
