I love the piano. I've played the piano since I was very young. I learned to play the violin too. It's really awesome when you can get caught up in playing a piece. I probably spend as much time playing the piano and violin as I do on the computer. I enjoy the piano, but I think I like the violin more. I also play the organ, naturally and can pick out a few tunes on the guitar. Do you play a musicl instrument? Do you enjoy it?

The first thing I learned how to play was violin but that was in Junior High school and I never kept it up...then in High School started playing recorder then guitar ...I still have my classical guitar, and used to have an electric (yeah, in my wild and crazy days when I fancied myself a rock star..hehee) My problem is just trying to find time now to do everything and sure wish there were 60 hours in a day to do a bit of each thing I love doing I would love to learn piano and flute one day...not just any kind of flute but Native American as I find the sound of it so hauntingly beautiful

Do you listen to Soundscapes pye? There's awesome flute and piano music there. I took up violin just to see if I could do it. I ended up loving it. I guess I'm one of the fortunate ones to be able to have the time for myself to play whenever I want to. Didn't we all fancy ourselves rock stars at one point or another?LOL

Well I don't know about Soundscapes, but I do have a number of CDs from "Lifescapes"--probably nearly the same thing with a variety of music, sort of New Age-y..I even have one with Native American flute music..Ah, yes, I did fancy myself as a Rock Star..hehee-uh, maybe that's why I love that Nickelback song "Rockstar" LOL

Well when I was a kid I use to take piano I use to take lessons every week and praticed a lot. Its pretty hard to learn a son it takes a long time. and a lot of practice. I stopped taking lessons a few years ago because the company shut down and I lost intrest but now Im wanting to take lessons again but I have to find someone who will teach me possibly someone that will come to my house which would be nice.

Having someone come to your house would be great arcidy. We might not see much value in playing when we're younger, but when we get older, sometimes, it comes in pretty handy.......

No I don't play any musical instrument. But before I did try learning how to use guitar and even piano at my tutee's house, but I always failed to learn how to play those stuff and I am very disappointed and then I end up quitting. It is just hard for me to learn how to play those musical instruments. Maybe I can learn if I would have my own instrument to play.

It just takes dedication and lots of practice honeylore. If you have your own instrument it might help you. Spending the money on something like that and having it close could be an incintive to make you want to play or practice more. After I spent so much money on buying a violin, I couldn't let it just sit in the corner. Looking at it sitting in the corner, knowing how much money I spent made me more determined to pick it up. After months of frustration trying to learn to play it, and long hours of practicing, over and over again, I finally got the hang of it. It might take a while, but (for me) it was well worth the time, money, frustration and everything else that goes along with learning. If you try it - good luck...Just stick with it and don't get disappointed.

I started playing the violin when I was 6, but my teacher didn't like me. . He said I didn't had any talent and wouldn't ever become a good musician, so I am glad that he left to live somewhere else. This caused me to look for a new teacher when I was 7 that would teach me how to really love the intrument. I am happy I found one. I started piano a little after I started violin. I couldn't help being curious about the pressing the little rectangular buttons and stuff.... I love playing both instruments.. Forever
