Started out as a drummer, played in a few metal cover bands in my teen years as a drummer, then as a guitarist. Have since moved o acoustic guitar/bass/vocals with a bit of piano, etc thrown in there.

Implying that only people who play traditional instruments are true musicians.

Anyway, I'm in around 5 choirs, plus the Florida ACDA All State Choir for 2 years in a row, plus I play piano.

I do marching band, jazz ensemble, wind ensemble, combo, all that stuff... mainly because I'm required to for my scholarship. I basically work as a performing musician though, I play alto sax. Most of the work I do are jazz gigs but I get called for the occasional church gig and whatnot (gotta take whatever for money ;) ) . Piano is my secondary, and of course doing jazz you have to know your doubles like flute and clarinet.
But hey, I just love making music with other cats out there!

I included a school chorus option and any band not listed above. For that very reason.

uhm... I have played in marching band, and concert band, jazz, and a personal band, and a mariachi group. Mariachi is the only one were I have played professionally(for money). I'm still in jazz, mariachi, and concert band. I'm quitting the jazz group though cause it just takes up too much time.
I also just make music like everyone else on Fl or somesmth, but w/e.

My main instrument is Bb Trumpet; I started out with a Bb Cornet but then things just changed. I own uhm...three trumpets, two cornets. Andddd.... two 7C mouth pieces, one 5B Cornet mouth piece, and one 3B trumpet mouth piece. I also have a xaphoon with a plastic reed. but I don't use it locally.

I don't do much other than my college's concert band for non-majors, but back in middle/high school I did lots...
Started on french horn, picked up trumpet as well. Did all-county with horn, ac jazz with trumpet. Also did solos throughout middle/high.
Oh, and marching band of course. <3 Did that all 4 years, got asked by a brass tech to go to Blue Stars with her, but I didn't gots enough $$$. :<

I think my best memories though were when I got to play with these chorus groups on two different occasions during high school... Good times. :)

I played the flute in middle school. Im also self taught in guitar, bass guitar and drums. Guitar is my main, ive been playing for about 5 years now. I really want to start up on some projects, but dont know how to get around doing so.

Played guitar for some years, got involved in some acts. I jam with a friend and play blues stuff once in a while, it's pretty awesome. I'm a metal/shred person at heart though. I'd like to record some melodic death metal with friends soon.

I also happen to sing once in a while, but rarely sang on stage. I used to sing in an old school smooth rock band (like "a perfect circle") when I picked up guitar.

Otherwise I like to jack off with any instrument I can find. Harmonica is pretty awesome lately.

But at the moment, I'm not doing much. I put up a small contest on here regarding guitar, but it died off.
