    I've been playing electric guitar since 13 years. I practiced many hours to develop technical proficiency.

    In high school, I got involved in sports so I dropped piano, thinking I would go back to it later in life, which hasn't happened yet.

    I hated playing the clarinet - I wanted to play tenor sax but the junior high band didn't need anymore sax players. So I ended up playing clarinet...

    Throughout childhood, I played piano... I stopped lessons 2 years ago. Now I only touch it say once every 2 months. Also used to play the flute in elementary school band.

    Hmmmm I suppose all of the above. Learning how to play the piano was something my parents really wanted me to do... but I get sick of practicing... I simply lack the precision required to play the correct notes. It doesn't matter how well done the expression of the piece is... to most people listening, it's always going to be flawed. Another thing is the lack of time... I rather spent my precious spare time on something I truly enjoy doing.

    I've always wanted to learn to play the cello.
