  • I played the cello in grade school. I even made it on the State Orchestra. I quit in High School and regretted it deeply. I was never able to get back into it.

  • I play piano and clarinet. I started piano when I was 8 years old and took lessons til I graduated. I started playing again about 3 years ago. I started clarinet when I was 11 and played for 4 years and quit, and just started playing again in our church orchestra about a year ago.

  • I started violin at school in third grade. They didn't let kids start wind instruments until 4th or 5th grade back then. Not sure what the standards are today. Would love to know though. I'd love for the twins to play an instrument. Trying not to rush it though. They are only 2.5 lol.

  • same as tweeby! I started taking lessons in piano when I was 10. I still enjoy it today(when I find time). We have a keyboard, I have fun playing that also, tho my dh plays it more than me. He also plays the fiddle.

  • I used to play the flute and the violin. I started playing flute in 5th grade (so I was 10). I played for 2 years then quit because it was too expensive for my parents at the time (even though it was only $20 a month rental).

    Then when I started high school I learned to play the violin. I was 14. I was in the school orchestra for 3 years but I haven't played since I graduated. I really miss it and wish I could have gotten one of the school's used violins they were selling. I want to teach my kids to play.
