  1. I started in a “KinderMusic” class at the age of 4, playing simple instruments like the bells, glockenspiel, etc.

    Then, I went to piano around age 5. It was fun, but I hated practicing!

    I didn’t want to play the recorder in fifth grade, so I picked the viola for the strings class. I loved it. I still didn’t like practicing, but I came to love orchestra and performing. I played for eight straight years – Fifth grade, all of middle school (grades 6-8), and all of high school (grades 9-12). I went to a strings camp for one weekend every May. My high school orchestra also received the honor to play at New York’s Carnegie Hall in April 2007, right before I graduated from the school. It was awesome!

  2. I started taking piano when I was 7. Then I played the flute in the high school band. Then I learned a little of this and that on all sorts of instruments when preparing to be a teacher. I wish I hadn’t quite piano way back when. I’d love to be able to just sit down and play.

  3. Ive aI’velways found that you never needed actual musical instruments to make music. Wooden spoons on pot pans, teaspoons on glassware (not too hard though #lessonlearned), even finger tapping on a table can be used to create some good tunes.

  4. Oh boy! This is a loaded question for me. So when I was 3 my parents put me in Suzuki violin lessons. I hated practicing and threw my violin in anger more than once.

    Years later my parents decided that I’d try piano (I really don’t know if I asked to do violin or piano). I again hated practicing but you can’t throw a piano so they let me stick it out for at least a year.

    Then in Middle School I got the bug to do singing lessons. Of course I wanted to quit after a couple years, but my parents made me take them through high school. I’m SO glad they did.

    I haven’t played a musical instrument in years and I don’t sing very often for an audience anymore. I’ve taken up writing as my creative outlet. 🙂
