I've played the flute since 5th grade, so been playing for something like 17 years or so. About the same time my parents finally gave in and got me a horse lol. I've played the piccolo, the bass flute, and the oboe. I'd love to play the piano, but having the two hands playing completely different things is just beyond my brain power. Most everyone in my family has played an instrument.
I played in marching band in high school before quitting my senior year because our director sucked. I do still get my flute out and play occasionally, used to play every Christmas with my gramma on the piano, but she passed away two years ago, and it's been a little hard to play again, as all my music is stuff we got to play together.
I feel bad about not playing, after my mom and dad splurged my junior year of high school, and got me a REALLY nice flute with custom butterfly mouth piece, so I still try and play a song or two every once in a while. When I have kids, I'll probably play a little bit more, and hopefully they'll be as into horses and band as I was. Here's hoping lol.
