Musical instrument(s) you play
« on: May 04, 2009, 07:36:29 PM »
I'm guessing no one has ever started this. I am more into classical music, so I play fairly on flute, piccolo, trombone, euphonium/baritone, oboe and english horn (cor anglais). But I also did learn a little bit of trumpet, clarinet, saxophone, piano/keyboard and bass guitar (a little out of place huh). So is there anymore fellow musician here?

I used to play the trumpet when I was in middle school and high school.

I always was first chair. but I decided to quit band and go to computer classes.
and now I can't even remember how to play a single note on the trumpet xD

Alto Saxophonist for five years, then I gave it up.

I used to play the Clarinet and a little bit of the Piano.

I played drums way back in jr high and high school. Still think of myself as a drummer although a rather poor one.

Flute first, saxophone second (preferably alto), clarinet ... fifth.  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.  ;D
Please feel free to call me Jack or R86.  :)

I wanna play the piano and the guitar (or bass) but I'm too poor to buy them.  ;D

When I was in elementary school I wanted to play the cello. Even bought one, then my school said cellos were too big and they wouldn't teach me how to play it. So we had to sell it back. v.v

I still want to play the cello. That and I have a fascination for harpsichords, organs and pianos.   

The only 'instrument' I actually play is my voice. Was in performance all 4 years of high school and now am part of my school's main choir.

I played Piano for a few years, (badly!) when I was under ten. and when I was in 5th-ish grade i took Violin for a term until I sliced my string finger open :/ haven't gone back since.

I suppose you could say I 'play' my voice. I love to sing (a, about the moona and the junea and the springa. i love to singa)

I've studied in piano classes for 6 years and now I can play mediocre sheet music very well. But I always wondered how all great musicians can just sit down and start to do an improvisation from scratch, without any base. Maybe I need some knowledge of music theory first.

About improv: IMO, it's all about talent, but more importantly mastering scales and music theory.  I don't play piano very well, but I do play guitar and violin since I was little.  Once you get your chord progressions down, you'll be able to develop better reaction time with your fingers and you will be able to play with emotion rather than like a robot thru sheet music.
