I'm late here, but I play the violin!

This is a bit late but that's awesome! Some say the violin is a little plain, but I think it can make the most beautiful sounds in the world in some peoples' hands. It's so cool that so many play here :D

Violins are amazing. I partially love them because of book characters who play the violin.

Yeah! Like Sherlock Holmes! I think it adds other depth to characters sometimes seeing their musical side.

As my pfp implies, I'm a reasonably competent guitar player... if one allows "reasonably competent" to include folk and classic rock.  ;-)  I've been in bands that have performed on actual stages for actual paying audiences, although I'm not currently playing out.  My last band imploded because - well, it's an all-ages-friendly site, so let's just say for a very rock-n-roll reason.

I can enjoy listening to almost any genre of music, but jazz and classical are not my thing when it comes to playing.  Kudos to those of you who do them!  I think everybody should be able to make some kind of music.

Does my voice count as an instrument? I'm in two choirs. I did finally decide to learn an 'official' instrument, and I started piano lessons last week

Totally! The topic is about musicians, and singers are definitely musicians. That's super cool! What kind of music do you like to listen to/sing? 

Also, piano is really worth the work! Stick with it ^_^

I listen to country, Christian, movie soundtracks, and random nonsense. I sing hymns, through-composed Psalms, and random things that were on the radio lately.

Electric and Acoustic Guitar, normally I play all types of rock or grunge or whatever. (Anywhere from Blackbird to Smells like Teen Spirit.)

Sweet! I've dabbled in guitar, though I'm not very good.

Hello everyone!

It's great to join this site, and I'm totally looking forward to the awesome future discussions!

Coming from a humble spren here (according to my profile apparently ^_^), are there any other musicians around? If so, what do you play and what genre of music?

I'm a jazz and sometimes classical pianist, a cellist, and a composer here and there. I'm a fan of any good music and love to improvise with anyone and experiment with different kinds of music.

Happy to join!

Happy to see you.

I love music in almost all genres because I grew up with every type, from classical to blues.  I've had lessons on piano, violin, viola, and guitar, but none of it 'stuck.'  I once bought an electric bass when I was in a garage band, and I can't play bass.  Running true to form, I recently bought a lap steel guitar—-and a viola.  I made sounds on the viola, though.
