Well...I've quit quite a lot of random instruments. I took piano lessons in kindergarten, first grade, and a little in second grade...and then my friend's mother did try to teach me some basic piano in 5th grade...

Like everyone else who grew up with public schools, I also learned to play the recorder, but I can't remember how to play it anymore... (I never really liked the sound of the recorder though- it's a little harsh...)

During...I think 3rd-4th grade, I took violin lessons, but I eventually quit. dry.gif (Hehe, interestingly enough, my brother is still playing the violin and is in the school orchestra. Unlike me. laugh.gif )

In 5th grade, I learned how to play 5 notes on the flute, but then we moved and my new flute was kind of broken (It wouldn't play the D or Eb notes...), so that fizzled out around there... wink.gif

~~~

So, now I'm basically stuck with my weird singing voice. Which would probably be OK, except that it's incredibly high... If I put some effort into it, I can actually sing a couple of fairly low notes, but there's like a 2 octave gap in between (I have no middle range in my singing voice... sad.gif ) So, Ailuro-san, rest assured, you're not completely alone. wink.gif

So, anyway, this kind of weird singing voice means that I can't sing atleast 95% of anime/j-pop songs without sounding really messed up. >_< I have tried practicing to increase my vocal range (I spent the past year trying very, very hard~), but the tiny scrap of progress I made seems to have vanished after school started...

But at least now I can sing louder than I used to... laugh.gif It's fun trying to imitate Amy Lee's voice from Evanescence...


(Wow, that was a really long post on random wasted musical experiences... laugh.gif )

I used to play recorder in elementary school too.. and I was actually good at it! Too bad I don't remember anything about it anymore.

Other than that, I only know how to play piano... I've been playing for 9 years and I'm not that great anyway.

I also know a little guitar and drums, but that practically doesn't count because I suck at both. tongue.gif

Heehee, maybe that's why I have a really annoying voice too~ laugh.gif

(It's a good thing the people on this forum can't hear me complaining to my friends endlessly about random stuff...)

The recorder is rather . . . hard on the ears. But if you ever see a soprano recorder . . . run away. Far away.

Exactly like a recorder. Only higher in pitch. I'm not so sure there's actually a difference between a soprano and a "regular", but I did see two labelled differently in a store once.

Oh, those...! I think in 3rd grade when we had recorders in music class, most of us had the normal white recorders, but about 1/3 of the class had these nice black ones well, they weren't that much prettier, but the slightly matte black recorders had nicer aesthetics than the beige shiny ones...), and I think the teacher called them "soprano recorders." I don't remember them sounding different though...I must be turning into an old hag.. laugh.gif

I guess the recorder is mostly just good for learning to read notes...even so, I've forgotten how to read notes and have to count from the low E everytime... sad.gif It's very pathetic~

The flute has such a nice sound if played well (that excludes me, obviously laugh.gif ). It would be really cool if I could learn how to play a shakuhachi, though...(I think those are the large Japanese bamboo flutes with 4 holes...)

I own this Chinese flute that I've never been able to play. It's so very different from the standard silver/nickel flute. I might have to pick that up again some time . . .
