~ QotD: Strike Up The Band ~

from vox:

Do you play any musical instruments?

i’ve learned to play many different instruments, but i barely play any now.

my dad taught me to play Harmonica when i was small… i can play the regular C harmonica, but harmonicas with half-note thing confuse the hell out of me.

i took classical Piano lesson when i was in 3 grade… and after many years, i didn’t improved much. but the lesson helps me to learn how to read notes.

during the fourth grade, all of us in the class had to take music lesson where we can only choose between two instrument: Pianica and Recorder. i chose Recorder.

in junior high, i joined the marching band and learned to play Baritone, Alto and Trumpet (in that order). i also tried to learn Trombone, but never end up playing it. now, if you ask me how to play, i think i have to learn them all over again. i have forgotten all of it!

some time in high-school, a brother of my boyfriend taught me how to play Saxophone. but after a few months, the lesson was cut off because i broke up with his brother. oh well.

when i was in college, i taught myself how to play guitar. my then-boyfriend gave me a guitar as a Christmas present, so i thought i need to learn it so that it won’t go to waste. now, guitar is probably the only musical instrument that i still remember how to play (aside from the harmonica).

after all those, i realized that i can never be a musician.

Took piano lesson sometimes when I was 8 or 9… and didn’t have the patience to go through the notes reading… Pianica was easy… but, again, I didn’t want to touch it after a friend borrowed and left my pianica all wet… Yuck! You could ask me to play few songs on a piano… But don’t blame me… I only play 3 songs… songs that I’ve learnt from 15 years ago?! Other than that… hmmm I humm… Hihihi!
