I was taking classes for singing and playing harmonium when I was about 10 years old. Just remember the basics and placement of keys now, nothing else.
I took piano lessons once, but I can't say I mastered that instrument. Enjoyed playing the piano though!
there was a teacher at our primary school who gave free guitair lessons, so I learnt the basics there and then carried on teaching myself. I also taught myself basic piano. Lessons were very expensive when I was a child, so not something I was able to do. As an adult, I have enjoyed learning more about music, so I don't feel that I missed out.
I would love toplay instruments.But never got a chance.
Sadly no.

That was something where I grew up, that just did not happen many many years ago.
I love the Banjo, and now want to learn how to play one.Another thing to add to my list for 2014.
I learnt the flute throughout primary school, and guitar throughout high school. Both times I had music teachers who were quite nasty and didn't care for fostering the love of music. I don't know if that's why I don't play either instrument now, but my brother-in-law has recently begun teaching himself the guitar and seeing his enthusiasm has gotten me interested again. I wouldn't mind getting a guitar again, and using one of the many apps that are available or YouTube instructors to help me brush up on my skills.
I learned to play a violin fairly badly. We had compulsory recorder classes at school but I can't remember anything from them. I think sometime I'd like to learn to play the ukelele, but not just yet.
I had a few lessons on guitar in high school, but because I couldn't read music, I never took to it. As an adult, I learned how to sing, which was wonderful, once you've learned that you never forget it. Would love to take up an instrument for real when my kids are a bit older and I've got a little more time :-)
Yes, my parents sent me to piano classes when I was a child. I can probably still play it if I have the sheets in front of me, but I'm definitely unable to create my own tunes.
When I was a child my mum forced me to play piano an I hated it. But I'm now older an so grateful that I can play such a beautiful instrument I also play guitar
When I was aged 7, my mother decided I should learn the Piano. Hated it!
On my third 'lesson' my music teacher wanted to see Mum. She explained to Mum she was wasting her money, because 'the child wants to do Elocution'.
So I got to study what I loved & continued up to my Licentiate!
I found ENGLISH subject & Elocution went hand-in-hand, so was easy to do for me & always got Honours in Speech exams & Dux of English Class, throughout, including Grade XII. Was a very happy student!
I learned piano when I was young. It's a family tradition to play. Now my daughter takes lessons.
I wanted to learn to play guitar but it never happened. I would like to send my daughter 12 for piano lessons cos she is interested in getting piano lessons. I still haven't found a place which is not too far to travel.

No - I'm a bit cack handed so don't think I'd have much success. I have a friend who plays the ukulele and is trying to persuade me to learn. I have tried a few chords and really like the sound of it so, who knows, if I persevere I might manage a tune one day!
Learned piano fr years as a kid but was never very good.
Yes I have learned the piano and also guitar

I started out my professional music career as a keyboardist, I had begun to play when I was around 8 or 9 years old.
When I was a teenager, I began playing with other musicians, and became professional about the age of 17. It was then I discovered the front line, and that I enjoyed being a lead vocalist and entertainer better. The limelight is very attractive to some, like me....
