I play the piano, or should I say I'm teaching myself to play! My father played the piano, but died before he could teach me. I have found I can play by ear.

I do agree with you! It does give me a headache!!!!!!! but I get a lot of pleasure, when I learn something new. The piano is hard, for those who have to work at what some take so little time to learn. I've come a long ways, from the days I just like to hear the sound the piano made. Its been three years, I've been teaching myself, but the accomplishments have been worth every minute I've spent learning this instrument.

Sorry, I was trying to be funny. "playing by ear" in the literal sense would require one to bang the side of their head (depening on which ear one played the piano with) repeatedly against the keys. .

I play tenor saxophone currently, but have played alto and bari as well. Music was offered to me in 4th grade, and it grew into a hobby. Now, it is one of my passions, I hope to continue it after I graduate high school.

I played alto in my school band until one the band teacher asked if I would play Tenor since nobody else in my grade would paly it. So I did, and got to play on a brand new sax. :)
