This will be my second time performing there and all of it is just so amazing. Watching it, performing in there. Its truly magical. Even though he was a Nazi, he knows how to make one hell of a theme park.

Im responding to a post from the first page, but I realize I never got around to posting a reply, which I meant to do. Our band never plays Disney, but we have gone to Orlando to play at Universal Studios in the parade the last two years. The competition is called Orlandofest and last year we actually won! We will be going back to defend the title again in May.

Wow, that's awesome! We've never done any competitions there. I'll recommend it to my band director, though. =D It sounds really fun.
Sure, we'd probably be up against your school. But bring it on! Lol xP

I used to play alto sax in my school's wind band and jazz band. No competitions or anything like that, just a twice-yearly concert to raise funds for I-don't-know-what.

In second year I got to play a solo in the jazz band (really just because I was the first one who could actually be bothered to learn it, lol), and in fourth year, me and my friend got drafted into the orchestra to back up the only french horn player. It was one of the best experiences of my life, playing a medley of The Empire Strikes Back themes (inc. the Imperial March, which I rocked) and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.

I also play the piano. Managed to get up to Grade 5 (my first distinction - yay!) before I left school and needed all my spare time for college work. No competitions there, either, but there was a small informal concert at the end of the year for the parents of the kids being taught by that particular teaching pair.

I've been playing the bass guitar for about two and half years now. Not in a band, but I've always wanted to be in a bitchin' punk band or something.

Also, I play a very small amount of electric guitar too.

I made this thread and I just realized I never said what I played. Derp.
Uhh, okay.. let's see.
Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, any kind of saxophone, ocarina, guitar, piano, violin, and I sing contra alto/tenor.
All of you are awesome for learning these instruments. This is just a really big interest of mine. >.<

Drum Set - 5 years training - shitty setup (pacific)
Working on Bass - trying to buy one - learning from friends

Used to play the Viola with a great deal of enthusiasm.

I had been playing since I was just a kid, even started writing some music of my own, and then one day a car door closed on the ring and pinkie fingers of my left hand. Not just slammed, but closed, shut, and locked.

No more Viola for me.

I draw now, instead.

I own a keyboard and an acoustic guitar. I don't really play much. I know how to read music and find notes on a piano, but I don't know exactly how to play. I am currently learning to play guitar, but it's pretty hard. The hardest part is moving from one chord to another. I know you have to practice for muscle memory, but my short little fingers have a hard time moving that fast!

I consider myself a pretty decent rock/metal/classical guitarist. I've only started writing my own stuff recently, and overall, out of hundreds of different riffs I've written, I only have 1 song in total completely composed.

Makes sense Slendy doesn't play a wind instrument.

Multiple tendrils for the keys.

I'm sure everyone and their mother learned how to play a Recorder at some point in their life. Winpoint to whoever can guess the only thing I know how to play.

I can say that I never learned how to play the recorder. D: None of my friends at school played it either. I took flute in elementary school, though I really wanted violin. But apparently we could only have a certain number of violinists and all that, so I got stuck with the flute. ashdksh I only remember one note. And the default finger placement... But it's a miracle I even remember that much.

I took up guitar and keyboard on my own. I was awful at guitar; my fingers never got strong enough. hfjksahd My dad always offered to help me learn, but then he was always too busy doing whatever else to remember. Keyboard on the other hand, has always been pretty easy for me to pick up on on my own. I'd like to play more, but since my mom put away her keyboard and refuses to even tell me where it is, I haven't played in a few years. hsdskdl

I'm not very good, nor can I read music to save my life, but I enjoy playing piano and recorder-flute! Trying to pick up the Ocarina as well

I play the bass guitar.
I've only played for about half a year though so I'm a bit of a n00b.
I prefer playing Black Sabbath songs Very Happy

... Well I played oboe for ten years, and mallet percussion... I had to drop playing oboe because I didn't have time anymore; now I'm probably insanely rusty at it. Self-taught myself basic piano as well. I am also trained in vocal theater and have naturally excellent pitch (runs in my family); I sing soprano and the higher alto range. I was the human tuning fork all throughout my high school theater career because I'm almost never out of tune, have a natural ear for harmonies, and can quickly fix any pitch issues I have.

I'm musically deficient, in that I never learned how to play anything. >.< I wanted to play the violin, but my family couldn't afford it, and so it never happened. About the only thing I remember from my music classes is when they used Pokemon to teach us that Fa La Do shit in second grade.

I still want to learn, but I'm out of school now and have no idea where to even begin.
