Favorite of all instruments:

Piano. I majored in piano for my Bachelor of Music Education degree. I don't perform any more, but I still play all the accompaniments for my students' auditions and competitions.

Favorite band/orchestral instrument:

Oboe. I really love that instrument, and enjoyed the orchestral parts written for it when I played it in youth orchestras.

I can play all the band instruments, even the bassoon, which I also enjoy a lot, but my regret is that I never got around to learning how to play the guitar. I really admire people who are accomplished on guitar, especially classical guitar.

If you're working now to learn the guitar, stick with it. You'll be able to enjoy playing it for life.

Edit: Typo

Electric guitar by a long long way. I'm also a big fan of good drumming (not your ordinary run-of-the-mill 4/4 timings keeping a rhythm).

Mmmmm....

Hands down, the violin. If played properly it can bring me to tears running down my face. I have one  Smile I can only play twinkle twinkle little star ( a far cry from what I want to play!) Damn hard thing to play! Even with lessons I got frustrated and put it down for awhile. Oh well, when the urge strikes again maybe I will pick it up again Big grin

I love the acoustic guitar, it is by far my favourite instrument. Although i'd love to learn it, I dont have time now, but the guitar is simply amazing.

Second would have to be piano.. both are great musical instruments, but the guitar definatley is the best.

Personally I play Guitar and Bass, so I have a preference towards those. But I have always been fond of the Sitar, it really has an amazing sound.

Oh and who doesnt love the bagpipes?

My all-time favourite instrument is the piano. I've been playing for over 20 years (since age 9, in April 1984, when I started private lessons)--maybe more, since Mom tells me I started playing on my own at an even earlier age and one time played for my Sunday school class (the teacher surprised Mom when she told her what I did)--that's how my lessons started. I have played for ISSMA district piano solo contests and given numerous recitals, and also played piano for my high school jazz band.

I perform regularly for friends and family (and have done so for church and a local retirement home), and now that I'm in London, I'm still using that talent--in King's College London musical society performances. In two weeks, I will be playing two piano solos for the College musical society concert.

The piano I have is a 1914 Hobart M. Cable upright grand, built in Elkhart, IN, and it's the same one I first learnt on. I plan to keep it forever if possible.

My second instrument is acoustic guitar. In Sept. 2001 (just before 9/11) I bought a beautiful new Epiphone Hummingbird (the sister to the Gibson Hummingbird), and started lessons then. I continued lessons until this summer (2004), just before I headed over to London to attend King's College London. I left my guitar at home, because I already had enough luggage (4 bags) with me for the trip.

I also have played various percussion instruments in school band--first of all, xylophone (bells), then snare and bass drums, then marimba and others.

When I was in 3rd grade, we all played soprano recorders in music class. That was the only part I enjoyed in elementary music classes--otherwise, as a total non-singer, I hated the rest of it. To this day, I still have my Suzuki soprano recorder dating back to 1985 (third grade year).

Now, I am just beginning to gather a collection of various musical instruments with which to decorate my future home--the old instruments of my many siblings from their band days, as well as my old instruments and now, in London, I'm shopping around for interesting instruments--like the Flutophone, the Yamaha "designer" recorders in translucent colours, the Melodica thing that looks like a piano you blow into, and I would like to find other things--eg. a green violin, a green trumpet, some ethnic instruments, etc. etc. My future home will someday look like a musical museum. You can tell I'm a very musical person, from a very musical family.

Wish me luck on my search!

Ohh. Such a hard choice.

I can't say one instrument, but here are my favorites:

Human Voice = Best instrument hands down. Everyone can play it.

Guitar = Probably the most versatile instrument that allows almost any type of music to be played. Anything from religious to death metal.

Piano = Extremely nice music and can produce a symphony of sound just by itself.

Flute = I've always liked the flute because it sounds so nice and adds something to a song as a whole.

Violin and Drum kit receive runners up.

Well .. that's all relative, I think. I have studied music all my life. But if I dared to sing in public, I would clear the room.  Sad

Listen to :Jungleland" Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, and crank up the sax solo by Clarence "Big Man" Clemons.
The studio version, or even better, live, it's the best sax solo I've ever heard.
