  • When I was in grade school,I played the clarinet & my twin sister played the violin.It's really sad because the school system here cut out some school programs and one of them was music.

  • I use to play the trumpet and stopped. I never picked it back up becuase I really never cared for it.

  • I used to play the clarinet. I enjoyed it, but my mom used to nag me to practice, yet make fun of me when I messed up. I got frustrated one day after a barage of her insults and I flopped down on my bed in tears. The clarinet bounced off my bed and just the way it hit the case, a piece of it broke. I showed it to my band director and told him what happened and when he looked at it, he said it looked like it had been broken before as there appeared to be glue residue around where it was broken. My mom refused to get it repaired, insisting I did it on purpose.
    I have always wanted to learn to play the piano. I was recently given one. I hope one day to learn.

  • In middle school, I played the violin and cello. When we moved from NC to Texas, the school district we moved into didn't offer orchestra, so I had to drop it. I wish my parents had found a way for me to continue as I look back now. If I were to pick it up today, I'd probably have to start all over!

  • I played the clarinet in middle school and gave it up because it hurt my cheeks to play it, lol. I'm since taken up the guitar and have stuck with it.

  • I taught myself how to play the piano when I was 11 and I've always loved it but I stopped playing after high school and just have never picked it back up. I hope one day I will be able to though. I also tried to learn the guitar but it hurt my fingers to bad and I gave up. Lol. Maybe one day I'll try again.

  • I played Clarinet in junior high band, but I never really liked it, so I gave it up. I started playing piano in third grade, and I still play it occasionally.
