I am interested in knowing if any hubbers out there play a musical instrument. I myself, play the Bb Clarinet - I'm taking lessons and love this instument - although it isn't the most easiest instrument to play. What do you play and what level are you at? Did you ever think of becoming a concert musician? (PS: Should have posted this in the "Entertainment" category.) Sorry!
I teach private music lessons on piano and all brass and woodwind instruments at our local University. My main instruments (playing professionally) is clarinet and piano. I can help you with any clarinet issues you might run into and solve them easily. Great to hear you are learning to play an instrument! You will love it.
I would love to learn the clarinet.Did you know these facts about clarinet.---
A person who plays the clarinet is called a clarinetist or clarinettist. The clarinet was invented in Germany by Johann Christoph Denner around the turn of the 18th century, by adding a register key to the earlier chalumeau. Over time, additional keywork and airtight pads were added to improve tone and playability. Today, the clarinet is used in both jazz and classical ensembles, as well as in chamber groups and as a solo instrument.
When I was younger I played the clarinet - was 1st chair from 5th grade thru a jr in high school I have been learning the electric guitar - can only play a little as I have neuropathy and cramping in my hands. Holly
I play the flute (at grade 8, which in England is the most advanced level), the Piano at grade 7, the alto saxophone at grade 7, the piccolo, i sing and am going to start learning the Bb clarinet soon. The flute is my main instrument; I love the sound - it can portray so many different emotions - happy, sad, romantic, eerie. etc. Love it
I've played piano (classically trained) since I was 5. I play at an advanced, but not concert pianist, level. Oboe is my main instrument, I play at an advanced level and I guess I could pursue a performing career with it if I wanted, but that's not really where my interests lie. I also play the clarinet and bassoon at an advanced level, and the flute and sax (bari sax rocks!) at an intermediate level. I've played recorder for quite a while, but just started to get serious with it as my health hasn't allowed me to play oboe for a while. I'm probably at a late intermediate level on recorder, at least on alto and soprano. I got a ukulele for Christmas, and I can play a few chords with it, but not much more yet. I can play simple melodies on the violin, but if anybody's around they better have ear plugs.
If you haven't guessed by now, music is pretty much my life. I'm trying to get started teaching piano and woodwind lessons, but not much luck in finding students so far. I was a music therapy major in college for a while, and I would like to go back to it if my health ever allows. For now I'm mostly housebound, but thinking about going to a local nursing home and playing for the residents. I also play and sing a lot in my church...and that reminds me, I almost forgot to mention I play handbells!
I have a master's degree in voice performance with a minor in piano performance and teach voice and piano. I sing, play any keyboard instrument and any upper string instrument (the ones you can hold, not the ones that rest on the floor). I've been a full-time classical singer for 23 years.
I have been playing guitar since 9, by ear, took 2 years of piano but never learned to read music, just played by ear...they finally gave up on me as far as lesson, lol! I have a piano at my son's house, and a 50 year old (at least) Gibson acoustic. Also a classic guitar, although I will give a nod to the Stratocaster!!!
