I like listening to classical music. I listen to Johan Strauss, Chopin, Brahms, Beethoven, and more, just about every evening after I get back home from work. It is very relaxing and refreshing. My favorite musical instrument is violin. I cannot play violin, but I like the sounds and tunes very much. Do you listen to music often too ? What type of music ? What is your favorite musical instrument ?

My favorite musical instruments are piano, violin, and flute, and some Chinese, Korean & Japanese traditional musical instruments like Sheng or Sho. They are enchanting me, exotic.

That's very impressive. I get the sense that you like classical and traditional music, instruments and songs. In fact, I like classical music very much too.

Cello is always in the orchestrs, and is certainly one of the central musical instruments. I like the sound of cello. Sure, it would be very nice to learn to play cello.

Hi greenline, I'd like classical music too, I love the work by the composers you cited, and I add Mozart to the list. Besides, I like New Age music. I'm very impressed by the "Zen breakfast". I can play guitar and bamboo flute, but my favorite instrument is piano. My partner play it very well. He likes to play classical pieces for piano and some movies' theme song. At that time, I sit by him and turn the sheet for him. It's cool, miam.

Yes, for sure, Mozart is one of my favorites too. I have Mozart music in my collection of CDs of classical music, and I listen to it quite often. You are a talented musician. That is wonderful. Bamboo flute ! I am not very familiar with the music of bamboo flute. Must be beautful too !

my favorite musical instrument is the guitar. it's the only one i ever tried to learn how to play. i wasn't successful though. but i really like listening to other people playing it, whether as part of a band or solo like in a classical guitar recital i went to recently, or in more informal settings like in a drinking session in the neighborhood, around a campfire, etc.

I tried to learn to play piano one time too. But, I didn't get very far. I just don't have that special gift ! But, like you, I still go to philarmonic orchestras and enjoy the music.

I play the Trumpet, Guitar, Cello and Piano. I've been playing most for about 8 years now. I ebjoy Jazz the most though, Chuck Mangione is a good one, but I like to try and play Bach Cello Suite.(so complex) I'm learning it though. I also like ALl music but Rap and Country.

I'm not into classical music, but there are classical songs that I like to listen like music of Beethoven and quite enjoyed hearing the "entertainer" by Scott Joplin. It was quite jolly song particularly if it was played by piano and trumpet. Though I can't play any musical instruments, my favorite instruments and love listening to it are piano and violin. However, I quite prefer more to listen to songs genre like mellow, rock, pop, easy listening, ballad songs.

Funny, I played the violin for 9 years. I don't think I have a favorite instrument these days. I like listening to the piano, especially Chopin. But I also like to rock it out and listen to a great rock guitar. I can play guitar too.So I really don't have one favorite.

In school I played the clarinet which was really nice. I like all woodwind instruments actually. I also like the piano as well. My mother actually got me into classical music because she plays it for her students while they do their assignments and stuff. It's supposed to be a proven fact that the music calms the students down. I guess it works because she's been doing it for years.
