      well I've been playing guitar for about 2 years I am not very very dedicated to it....but sometimes I like to play.....and I am self learnt.....all I know I learned by myself or used some help from the internet....sometimes I like to play few notes and chords on virtual piano..... actually I have very good listening skills.... not really absolute hearing but relative.....but I can usually figure out any note that there is..... chords more difficult....but sometimes get them too after some time of experimenting at least those basic....so I can hear pretty well....only thing that's more tricky is when some notes are played fast....that is tricky also....but I can almost figure out any note that there is.....but only if I have instrument but unfortunately it takes long for me when there are lots of notes......an that's it I play mostly for myself

      I've been playing the piano for about 13 years, specialising in classical and jazz.
      Guitar for two years and singing for three years.

      self taught myself how to play piano learning the basic scales and chords and then learned how to read music sheet (though super slow), learned some songs but stopped. All the while my brother was learning to play guitar so i picked up how to play it basically learning some chords, but i mostly try to learn cool riffs i like. I have now found my true purpose the DRUM! Been playing that over about a year, teaching myself again.

      I've taken violin lessons but never felt I was terribly good at it. I did, however, learn piano by ear, and thanks to some awful experiences compliments of my piano teacher, I cannot read music. But it's fun. I've been playing the piano nearly my whole life.

      Started to play the guitar 3.5 years ago taking lessons and 2 years ago I self taught a few basics of drumming.
      Composed a few not so great stuff on my own and with a few friends, now I just play for fun when I've time

      I was also quite good at screaming and growling once!

      The level of my piano playing skill is the same as a thirteen month old babys speaking skill.

      I've been playing piano for 14 years. I took piano lessons starting in 2nd grade until I graduated high school. It was mostly classical music, but lately I've been starting to get better at improvising, even trying to write my own songs now. I also taught myself bass guitar, which I've been playing for 6 years now.

      This is the song I played at the year-end recital of my senior year:

      "Going through life worrying about the little things is like cooking with motor oil instead of cooking oil. Sure, you can still probably pull it off, but it'll leave a bad taste in your mouth in retrospect." - Me, apparently

      I started playing guitar 3 years ago and am self-taught. I'm still not the greatest, but that's okay because the whole reason I started was just to have fun and be able to play around a campfire. I mostly learned through youtube(by watching acoustic covers of songs and tutorials) and got guitar tabs online. I love the internet.

      I have very noob piano skills. I practice a few hours per week. Someday I wish to become an epic trance DJ. (not a DJ who produces epic trance, but an epic DJ who produces trance)

      I can't really claim to play any seriously. I used to play Tenor Sax (7 years in school.) but haven't played in almost five years now. I currently dabble in piano, guitar, and cello. Mostly piano as it is the easiest to simply start playing without the need for tuning and I have the easiest time improvising on there. My school also has a number of pianos open for practice so I tend to stop by and play between classes.

      I started playing percussion in the 5th grade and continued for years through high school. I didn't really continue after that (graduated in 2001). I was pretty good at percussion, though not the rock and roll type. I didn't have a lot of experience with drum set. Lately, with my musical preferences evolving, I am really interested in learning how to play the cello. It's my favorite musical instrument in the orchestra. It has the perfect range to my ears. Its just too bad that I didn't learn how to play various notes and scales like all the other sections. I can pick up rhythms pretty well, but learning the different notes and keys will be tricky. I will make it happen one day, even if I'm really old when I start. No drum solo has ever provided the same emotional range as a melodic instrument.

      I've been playing piano for 17 years. I took lessons up until a few years ago, and like to play for fun now. Sometimes I can go a week or 2 without playing before I miss the piano, and I usually won't play for more than 2 hours at a time. I teach myself classical pieces, and listen to Youtube videos to help me with the melodies.

      learned violin for 2-3 years (i played it like a guitar instead of playing with a bow because of my muscular dystrophy)
      i quit violin this year and started piano (quite good at it honestly)
      just after some months though i started losing interest in piano and instead wanted to pick up electric guitar (i will begin guitar after the summer is finished)
      i have only learned some riffs from the internet.

      I finished 6 years of music school. I play guitar and piano, but in the past time the instruments are just collecting dust.

      I've played guitar off and on since high school and I am going to be 31in August. I just started getting intopiano again. I took a piano class in community college a long time ago. Played by ear and got a b or an a in the class. I'm interested in recording got a soundcloud site soundcloud.com/oneironaut26 if anyone wants to check out what I can do in piano and editing. I plan to add electric guitar when I get one soon.

      I played the penny whistle/recorder pretty well in elementary school, never had much luck with the alto sax or clarinet though and I kinda gave up on myself after that. I've been told I have the perfect fingers for piano/guitar, however I just use them to type at 80+wpm on forums like this

      I have been playing the cello for five years now, and so far, I am currently learning several advanced concertos, such as Shostakovitch and Prokofiev. Otherwise, I have been learning piano for less than a year, and I can play several well-known Chopin nocturnes. I try to practice at least 8 - 10 hours a week.
