    I was just wondering how many of you all play a musical instrument? I keep my violin in the same room as my sewing machine and it's great to every once in a while take a break and fiddle out a tune! :D

    Very funny! Were you always such a troublemaker??? ;)

    I play the flute and the piccolo. (whole family is musical: DH plays piano & saxophone, kids each play: flute & piccolo for oldest dtr, middle dtr plays trumpet, piano, and is a soprano soloist, youngest plays trombone and also sings) We couldn't live without music!

    I have always wanted to play hand bells. Never attended a church large enough to have a handbell choir. Maybe someday......

    I play "at" the piano. I can play a harmonica, but not real well. I played the guitar for years, even used to sing and perform. Have written dozens of songs, some have been recorded but no hits.I seldom play now because of my back. My DH says he misses hearing me play and sing.

    I used to play the organ and the piano but haven't in a long time. Now I'm best at playing CD's. Age, stiff fingers, lack of practice have all taken their toll.

    Piano, guitar, bass guitar, alto recorder. I play recorder in a consort and we've performed publically with very good reviews, but I confess to being the remidial player in the group... I think I hold them back haha! :lol:

    Learned to play the recorder back in middle school. I want to learn to play the psalter, but that will have to wait until I get the money for one (and the time). (may be next year on that one...)

    **example of how it sounds; it's the instrument being played on top of the harp

    I played the clarinet in school, and the piano since I was about 7. Nothing now, unfortunately. I would love to have a piano again! Haven't since living at home. I am thinking of trying the guitar. I wish I could sing!
