Piano: 7-8 years? Quit lessons. I still play for fun though.
Trumpet: 6 years. Still going strong.
Guitar: 2 years. I don't practice though, and I've been learning on my own. Green Day is like the only thing I play well.

I love band. In fact, I just came back from a home football game. We f*cked up the field show though. (We're doing Wicked.)

LOL, I like music, can't wait to have to go to school an hour early, and stay two hours late for a grade....and then sit through a football game... Maybe if I am playing my Sax it wont be so boring.

I've always thought of it as fun. I dunno.

Also trumpet is cool.

I played the trumpet in middle school. I haven't touched it since, but I could probably still play well. I wanted to take guitar this year, but my schedule got switched. >.<

OHOH. Well. In third grade, I played the recorder.[Hot stuff.] And last Christmas, my dad bought me an acoustic guitar. Fender woooooo. I know it's lame, but it's awful exciting for me. And I still have no idea how to play it. Anyone interested in teaching? O.o;
I need a talent.

Says Google Maps:
Driving directions to Apple Valley, CA
82.2 mi – about 1 hour 22 mins (up to 2 hours 20 mins in traffic)

No can do. Also, I doubt you'll find anyone else on here.

I've always thought of it as fun. I dunno.

I don't like football, and not a morning person, so I was hoping it would be fun next year.

That's like saying pineapples are pineapples; it's redundant.

Depends, I know this guy who plays trumpet, he hates its guts (or whatever you want to put in place)

Also I used to play bass clarinet, so stop dissin' the low brass (just kidding only 2/7 of the low brass in my school can play more than 6 notes right in a row.)

At first, I thought I'd hate it, but it grows on you. An 'acquired taste' I think they call it.

Blasphemy! He's confused. Deep down inside, he actually loves the trumpet.

My point exactly. There exists a seemingly universal pattern with low brass; they suck.

I'm not in band, like at school. But I am in a band.
I play guitar and have been for 3 or 4 years I believe.
I've been playing piano for 4 years.
I've been playing violin for 7 years as well.
And I sing.

Music's the best. (:

Piano, 2 years.
: If you weren't new here, you'd know not to feed me such attention. This is like an orgasm in my brain right now. *hehe, my name is in a title, hehe* (http://www.debate.org...)

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

"The law is there to destroy evil under the constitutional government."
So... what's there to destroy evil inside of and above the constitutional government?

Alto Sax --> 10 years

And as such, I can play other wind instruments (any type of sex: tenor, baritone, etc.) including clarinet and flute. Though alto sax is my fave, because I'm actually really into jazz music and compose my own original jazz/blues pieces from time to time. When that happens, I usually write music on a piano (I've never had formal lessons but know my way around + know notes and chords) and transpose it for particular instruments. I write bass lines, chord progression and melodies for various instruments. I'm working on learning how to actually write drum music the 'proper' way. Anyway, I can pretty much write for any genre and then just transpose it *shrugs* -- I was in jazz band back in HS, btw. I haven't played for a few years though :/
