    I played trombone in high school band. I really didn't like it, especially marching band for the football team, when it was 20 degrees outside. I wanted to be with my friends in the stand, acting like dorks trying to pick up chicks.



    I did play in a youth orchestra for many years, first playing violin (which I didn't really like at the time, but good training looking back) then switched to string bass, and enjoyed that a lot.



    I'd like to learn the cello someday, I bet it wouldn't be that hard to pick up after playing violin and bass.

        I played drums/percussion. One time, in high school, the band played Bohemian Rhapsody and I ad-libbed a drum solo; the band-leader was unimpressed.

            Played violin in 5th grade emsemble but had to quit because they made me play righty and I couldn't deal so I quit.



            Played clarinet in freshman year of HS and was in the orchestra, but hated it and so I quit that too.



            Played guitar in Jazz and Pep bands in Soph-Senior years of HS and got blow jobs from cheerleaders. I stuck with guitar.

                Piano and voice lessons since I was 5, trumpet since I was 8, added guitar when I was 16. Sang in an honour choir for 10 years. Played guitar for my highschool jazz choir and a few combo's... kept with all the lessons until I graduated too... then did a year of jazz guitar at university, wasn't for me though. Got one year left of my BBA, best choice I ever made.

                    Lol I played recorder up until 5th grade in elementary school, then joined my high school band immediately playing guitar. I told my teacher that if I couldn't play guitar I'm not joining band. I was in it all 4 years and sometimes did some jazz ensemble, and me and the other guitarists did a joint guitar ensemble every winter and spring school concert during the last 2 years. After high school although I obviously stuck to guitar and keep at it religiously, I hated the music program in my college. This fall I'm planning on attending a different school for a bachelor's and teaching certification in music.

                        Played trumpet for a couple years, it was too hard so I quit. I think guitar players have it easy physically.



                        Took a guitar class in 8th grade which ultimately had me hooked. It was basically just nylon string classical guitars learning notes and stuff.

                            I wasn't allowed to join a musical program in HS because I didn't have "previous experience."



                            High school truly is preparation for adulthood.

                                I wish I could have been in a high school music program... I guess I never had the ambition or even the interest at that time. I think the closest I got was playing chimes in 5th and 6th grade. I think I played C and C#. I can't remember. Got hooked on guitar in 8th grade, did the lessons thing all through high school and eventually attended clown colle... I mean guitar college (GIT). It was a pretty amazing experience. Now I've been experimenting with band kid type things (CATS and a wedding gig).
