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 play the keyboard abit, but with the letters still on the keys.
Not perfect yet.
playing instruments is an art...so you are good here with your question
I pay piano, violin, flute, recorder and sing
It would be nice if I did it often enough to be better now...but I use to be average...having children took over my life and I haven't started playing more again...yet...it is on my list
I play guitar, ukulele and I'm about to get serious with the piano. I know a few chords and can play melodies by ear, but that's no longer enough for me! I also plan to buy a mandolin.
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.
Guitar and blues harp. I haven't for some time though, and I don't have the wind any more for my harp.
I play the guitar pretty proficiently, I sing well and I've got basic background/understanding of piano.
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.
I'm teaching myself to play guitar. My son taught himself as well. He's getting good at it.
none. i have a mountain dulcimer though, that i got and only played five times or so. i took it out yesterday and have it in plain sight because i am determined to learn how to play it this year.
Piano. I started playing around 5 years old. It just came naturally. Oh...I can also play a mean set of "spoons!"
Electric bass guitar. Been playing professionally for years.
I play blues rock on a American made Stratocaster. The greatest guitar ever made!
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 am amazed at the many talented musicians here! So fun! I am starting lessons next Friday on jazz piano with a local professional jazz pianist. Very excited!
tenor sax. although its been a good five years or so.
I have been playing guitar for thirty years. Not much better now than when I started.
I like to play the piano when I was young but private lessons were expensive for my mom. I still want to learn, but I have not started yet. Procrastination is my enemy!
I play and teach piano. Nice to meet everybody here. I want write some hubs about teaching and playing piano in the future, hopefully soon.
Took piano lessons for many years. Professional musician playing R&R, guitar drums bass guitar vocals, fiddle, 5 string banjo, mandolin and swinette.
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!
Me too playing guitar and bass for about twenty years. Started a site to help others and post up some of my own work. My site is in my profile page and very new.
I play my bass quite often but I have an electric organ as well, just for fun:)
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.
Guitar, drums, bass, banjo, trumpet, harmonica, french horn, and a little piano
been playing for about 21 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!!!
