Hello there! I am a music lover but not a musician. My hubby is both as well as my kids, thanks God. My hubby has a musician blood in him but when he was still a kid, he also trained playing the organ. But my kids didn't receive any training in playing musical instruments, nevertheless, they are really good in playing the organ and the guitar. How about you? Thanks for sharing your being a musician.

yeah.. i've been playing the piano since i was ten years old.. then i shifted to playing the keyboards when I joined a band. It's really fun! The feeling is great specially when u perform in front of a crowd.. it's really exciting. I also love being with my bandmates.. they're really cool guys.

yes! I love it when I get to perform on stage. It's sort of a happy feeling because you get to share your passion in music with other people.

when i was a child i already like the music, but unfortunately in that time music never discover my small talent. why i can say this? it's because in that time i can't sing properly. but when i get into high school that was on my fourth year, i have two classmates that sings in our church, meaning the two of them are both choirs. so that, i get confidence to join there choir. the time goes on our master saw my small talent about how to play keyboard, and then teach me how to play. that's why now i know how to play keyboard and guitar but not good as him.

when i was in grade five, there was a free summer school teaching to play guitar.all my classmates has attended, except me because my mom didn't allow me.i badly want to join, i cried for nearly a week...when we are already in high school most of classmates then are good guitar players, i really felt envious then. thinking that if only mom allowed me to join the summer school i would have been as good as them by now.

yes.,by my friends because I want to learn the basic of beating a drum, because i cant do it by myself for me drumming has a more profound history as a method of communication, and the drum as an implement of religious symbolism.

I really love music until when I was in 3rd year I saw my Classmate playing guitar. I find It interesting so I ask Him to teach me a little and It's fun so I buy my own guitar and master the chords. But I never been enrolled in a music study.

I enrolled in a Piano tutorial lesson when I was a kid. They taught me basic piano playing, like reading notes on a piece and playing them on keyboards. I learned the basics but did not progress well in playing notes-based. It was boring. What I enjoy instead is, learning to play based on chords, like the one applied in playing guitar. I love singing while playing on keyboards. It's more enjoyable to me.

I was sent to learn to play organ and piano since I was five, and until now I've been using that ability to try to get myself into the society by joining mysuc clubs, writing music, performing and being a trainer. I always dream of being a musician, but my current situation won't allow me to do so, therefore I just play music or sing and post them in youtube for the sake of sharing it with other people.

I really wanted to play the harp like a good musician. I had a very good instructor, and I started learning how to play. Just made the fundamental stages, and didn't get very far mainly because I could not devote much time to it. But, I am still hoping I can continue with it and become a good harpist !

I didn't know that I had any musical ability until I saw a guitar and wanted to play it. I later found out that my family has musical talent and I wish I would have known because I would have started way earlier. I took piano but I play guitar by ear. I'm self taught and even though I don't play with the proper technique that a teach would like I still have my own style and that's what music is all about. My kids are still young but they show interest in music such as singing and drums and guitar.

Yeah I've been training to some day try and make music for a while now. I really enjoy playing bass and guitar, making beats electronically, and I love writing lyrics and would like to some day be able to sing them pretty well.
