:shock: That's a lot*claps frantically* I'm jealous. The Clarinet sounds like a kazoo with a tummy ache, and it's the only thing I can play :/

It's just something I like. The thing about insturments is that you need a really strong dedication if you really want to learn. It's one of those "What you give is what you get." things.

As for being able to know that many, I guess it's like languages. It's hard for me to learn another. I can't do it. Music just comes naturally just like the ability to learn more than one language.

That's really impressive, haijessie! You're so right, what you put into it is what you get when it comes to musical instruments, and it does take a level of dedication to get far. So it seems like you're a very dedicated person!

Musical Instruments

I have an electric keyboard, and I play in on occasion with different styles. I'm actually not very good at it. I can play "The Imperial March" "The Throne Room" and "Across the Stars" (from Star Wars), "Moonlight Sonata" and "Für Elise" (by Beethoven), the original Star Trek theme, and some songs by Krystal Meyers (I have a songbook for her first album). I also once knew how to play the opening of Chopin's Etude 10 Op. 3.

I am very dedicated, but I do need something to let my anger out and music was just the key. :shock: My anger is what kept me dedicated. I know that sounds harsh. :oops: But it is what it is. Part of the reason why I like Cars so much was the way it helped my anger but that's a story to tell in the off-topic part on a rainy day when you have nothing to do. :?

I'll be sure to post some of my song covers on YouTube to show you people. I have no problems doing that. :)

I took up the violin 2 and a half years ago and I love, love, LOVE it! :D I'm very dedicated!

I can also play piano, though I'm not very skilled and I gave up on lessons every time I tried to have them; and I'm currently learning guitar.

Guitar is so fun if your willing to ruin your hands. :wink:

I love it though. I think you will too.

Jessie, that list is amazing! I can't believe one person can play all of those.

I can play piano, but that's really it :D I can't even really play it, I just get tutorials off YouTube and learn. So it's not official. I also have a harmonica, and I mess around with that, but I'm no where near good at playing it

I started playing piano when I was five, but for various reasons I had to quit three years later. When I was 8 I started playing the clarinet in homeschool band but I switched to bass clarinet later that year. When I was 9 I started playing alto sax. I started taking violin lessons in 2006, and two or three years ago I started playing guitar. Two years ago I started playing tenor saxophone and I pretty much fell in love with it. And almost three weeks ago I started learning the baritone, which has been pretty hard since I've never played a brass instrument before.

Jessie, that really is astounding! I'd love to hear a recording of you playing something one day :D

I've been taking piano lessons for a year and a half and I'm not afraid to admit I am terrible at it for someone who's been practicing for that long, but it's kinda fun, and I guess that's all that really matters. My sister used to play guitar and can manage an ocarina. I've tried the ocarina before and it's not too difficult, I just hate putting my mouth on a woodwind instrument someone else's mouth has touched. xD

I wish I knew how to play guitar and piano. I've always wanted to learn.

I play saxophone.


I've been playing it pretty much since 7th grade.

I'm also teaching myself the piano.

And I'm considering playing the viola in the future.

I play the piano (but not very well) and the trumpet.
I'm really into more obscure instruments though, I'd love to get my hands on a theremin, and at the moment I'm teaching myself how to play the ocarina.
