I currently take lessons for piano and bass guitar...Right now I own a piccolo, a flute, a bass guitar (no amp though, cuz I don't want to carry it around), clarinet (that's the only thing I have all the levels mastered in the Music Conservatory), bass clarinet and a piano! I will be taking Tenor Sax soon too!! BTW there's 32 of us in the concert band altogether!!!

Until I graduated high school, I played the trombone. I started in 5th grade, and continued through 12th. Our marching band, the Emerald Brigade, had over 400 members, including color guard and percussion.

I play Eb alto saxaphone in maching, concert, and pep band. I enjoy playing the instrument very much and have been playing since 6th grade. I took piano lessons for about 5 years, and still play in my free time. I'm trying to learn to play the flute now.

I play the trumpet (well I haven't played in a long time...). I had a choice...I could have played the cello....the orchestra teacher wanted me...the band teacher wanted me...I had done well with both...pity, I chose the trumpet.....
I had wanted to learn piano as a young kid..my parents said "no"...later on, when I was some years older, they asked me if I wanted to learn then, but by that time I had lost interest...they said they regret not letting me do it when I had asked the first time...well, I'll learn it one of these days.....maybe it would have helped me do better in math and science!

Piano, tenor saxophone, and clarinet. I am in a jazz band of guys that go to my school. We've gotten to be pretty popular around Berkeley and really the whole Bay Area for Cal alums (mostly) that want entertainment for functions.
And without being arrogant I think we're pretty damn good.

I used to play the drums, but I gave them up when I moved to the city, and no longer had a quiet, insulated place to play. Something tells me my neighbours wouldn't be too happy if I started to "bang on the drum all day".
