    I play piano, clarinet and sing. I haven't had a chance to play/sing lately but I do love music.

    I love music, but the only instrument I actually play well is my boudhran. I rarely play it typically in Irish fashion, I prefer to hand play it, and love playing it to country and bluegrass music. I tried the guitar and autoharp but holding them causes me too much pain in my neck and shoulders. bummer!
    My husband owns a music shop, plays just about everything, if not everything, he sells and has jams in the store every Saturday afternoon.
    I also write a few songs now and then and love to sing, tho I sing with heart, not necessarily talent. LOL

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Unfortunalety I am not musically inclined at all. When we lived in Alaska I joined in the Hand Bell Choir. I tried SO hard to read music but my brain just is not wired for that. I attended all the practice meetings. The other people in the group, mostly older folks at that time were very nice and encouraging but I knew I was not good at it. So I ended up dropping out. I was actually sad because I just could not "get it".

    I play the radio really well! I took piano for about 6 months as a child. Just couldn't make the time for practicing. All 3 children can play the piano (living thru mother's mistake) and husband plays sax. I did take piano lessons again as an adult for a couple years, but I would much rather sew than practice.

    I always wanted to play the piano as a child. I took accordian lessons for awhile as a kid. About 10 years ago when my daughter stopped taking lessons I asked her teacher if she took in adults. I took lessons for 9 years. I'm not the greatest but it was a dream. She even entered me into federation competitions. I earned a silver cup. Guess old people dont get gold but silver. Anyway I was happy. I play handbells in our church bell choir. I love doing that.

    Piano. I'm better when I practice a lot, not so much when I don't. But only play for myself.
