  1. Beyond the triangle and glockenspiel which I played (and I use the term loosely) at school I don't play any instrument but I'd love to play the drums. All that banging, I can imagine its a great stress reliever.

  2. I took piano lessons for 11 years growing up but no longer own a piano. I do have a keyboard I play occasionally but I'm rusty and it doesn't have the feel of a regular piano for me. I did play the clarinet for awhile in junior high but chewed up so many costly reeds I switched to a trombone. I found a beautiful old Hohner harmonica at a garage sale I had refurbished some years back and do love to play it.

  4. A long, long time ago, I played piano a little, and, for a very short time, clarinet. My daughter plays a lot of instruments, but I especially love to listen to her playing piano. I never get tired of that.

  5. I played the French horn up into college, but honestly I always hated it! I'm not musical in any way shape or form :) But I do love the sound of the piano and violin!

  7. Good question! I've not really thought about which one is my favorite. I took piano and flute lessons when I was in elementary school, but of the two, I prefer the piano. I also enjoy listening to the violin.

    Have a great weekend!

  8. Wow! I'm a music teacher so I'm not even exaggerating when I say I love all of them. I really wish I knew how to play the bass clarinet. Maybe someday.

  10. My favorite is the violin. I have played the piano, recorder, and guitar, but my short fingers make it hard to play quite a few instruments very well.

    1. Cherie- Although you mentioned your short fingers- I think it is awesome that you tried so many instruments! :) ~L

  11. I used to play the violin. Well, a long time ago I did. I can't imagine playing it now, but I've always loved the sounds that instrument makes under the fingers and bow of someone who know how to play it,

  12. I played the piano growing up. I still have my piano, but I don't play much anymore. I'm hoping my daughter takes lessons soon though.

  13. No instruments for me. The piano is nice.

  14. Piano! Love the sound it makes. And guitar. My son is a musician. He can play anything with strings. My daughter plays the violin, guitar, and mandolin. So music has always been big here on the farm.
