Yes I learned the piano and I never liked it because I didn't like the teacher
by AJ
I had piano lessons against my will for a long time -I did very well with this however, and recently bought a piano.

Also learnt guitar for a short while.

your talented :)

Yes, lots! I'm very musical and for a long time was determined I would be an opera singer when I was grown up but sadly a severe illness as a teenager damaged my voice so although I can still sing, I'm not good enough to be a professional. In additions to singing, I played the piano and trumpet. I regret not learning to play the harp or guitar as I would love to be able to accompany myself singing folk songs but I don't have the energy or the patience to start learning anything from scratch now!
wow, what a colourful life in th art of music nice one, but very very sad that your singing was unable to come about :(

Yes I learnt the piano and did well.....have a piano and play regularly....well when the mood strikes!
by Fran
None. No music lessons, but it's because I was not interested.
No not a one.
That was always for the other kids, as was a whole lot of other things too.
I was told we were too poor.
Finy, you have outdone yourself on the pic you posted,

During my first years at school (I think maybe even in kindergarten) I learnt the recorder, and a few years later when I was about eight or nine my parents started me on violin classes. I enjoyed my violin classes and was quite good, but other 'tough' kids at school teased me about it and I lost a lot of my enthusiasm. I stopped my lessons at the end of Year 9, as I needed to spend more time focusing on my final few years at school.

I often wish I'd continued on my violin lessons and I hadn't been so shattered by the taunts of the other kids as I enjoyed those lessons a lot and would love to be able to play now. Maybe one day I'll give it a try, although at the moment I'm pretty busy with other commitments.
No, I was never able to do any extra curricular activities. Mainly due to lack of money.
I think music is very important for kids to learn as it helps them in so many areas. Even when money has been tight I've made sure music lessons are a priority. All 3 kids all started lessons when they were 8 years old. My daughter plays guitar, my middle son drums and my youngest son plays piano. Mr 8 has recently learned Fur Elise and currently has an obsession with Beethoven. I'm one proud mama!
Yes, I had piano lessons but Mum eventually cancelled them because I wouldn't practice! The rotten thing about that was that my teacher was also my next door neighbour so she knew darn well that I hadn't been practicing! Really wish now that I had practiced and continued - would love to be able to play now.
No, but I would have loved to have had music and singing lessons.
by Vee
Yes I did, and now I'm a musician and music teacher now partly because of this.
Had 3 Piano lessons' only! I was 7yo.
Teacher spoke to Mum, saying I wasn't interested, because I'd prefer to do 'Elocution'.

So swapped, & spent up to/including age 23 doing 'Speech & Drama', & in an amateur acting group
Also got to complete different levels of AMEB Speech Exams.
Then had tonsils out 3 weeks' before 2nd last exam, so that was the end of that!
Then got married, & the rest, as is said, is 'history'!
Yes, piano and viola - but am now very rusty. One has to keep in practice and that was something I wasn't very good at. But I looked learning a musical instrument.
Piano lessons (I had a lovely teacher), and viola lessons (not such a lovely teacher!!)
i had a few lessons of the recorder in early high school, & that was that. We ddi buy a piano for our daughters to have lessons, but they didn't last long before they lost interest. I sold the piano back to firm I'd bought it, for 1/2 the price we'd paid for it!! It had to be carried up (& later down,) 13 uneven stone steps, with no hand rail!
by Miro
Piano but my heart lay elsewhere and the teacher was a *** anyway. Fifty years later I still have the piano.
by Rice
