What is your musical instrument?

Please share your music journey (serious replies only) and what motivates you to continue up to this day.

Hi Danile!!

I have Grade 8s in piano and violin (I have a violin thread here), and I'm doing a diploma in violin performance now. I moonlight as a music teacher with a local music school during my free time (rushing students for ongoing ABRSMs now).

I can also play the Chinese dizi, albeit only at a low, recreational level.

As for what motivates me.. I don't know. I've been doing it for so bloody long that I'd feel very weird without practicing, it's as much a part of my routine as brushing my teeth.

Just look at my dp

Somehow playing it keeps me happy. Tried others B4 but it's the low end tht keeps me gng. I don't need fanciful playing, shred across the whole fingerboard, just a nice low note played at the right time and touch wld make me shiok

Piano grade 8, guitar for leisure purposes. Don't have my piano with me at my new place, so I play a tune or two whenever I return to my parents' place. Guitar skills are just passable, used to xian my husband with it, now he just finds me annoying.

ABRSM Piano (Practical) Grade 1, Year 2001

NUS Chinese Instrument Exam (Guzheng) Grade 3, Year 2007.

No money to cont learn piano last time, still young so duno self learning. The last time i played piano was in 2016 due to the piano thread in edmw. Learnt a song then stop liao.

Guzheng was sec school cca. No more girls accompany me so stop learning liao

Nowadays i still do music related stuff like rent out professional sound system for events. Just that the computer play music i listen.

The training in music does help a bit in frequency identification. Helps to filter some annoying frequency. Knowledge like harmonics, octave, db, tones, etc does help a bit.

piano and flute. piano since young, flute few years back.

also want violin eventually. guitar was too painful.

not motivation, it's a feelz thing. they say music is a language. maybe it's true. it's a form of communication, outlet and expression, like any other arts. one simply must play.

one of my ex in a rare moment of perspicacity remarks i hear things differently from her, which i never thought of. i suppose that's true for all musicians, it's just different.
