As for me, I’ve never been in a band but I used to make music alone by myself when I was a kid. Lots of my free time I listened to electronic style of music, I’d say I was hooked on it. Therefore, I thought what if I start to make mine. There were different instruments for making it, virtual ones basically in the internet and among mine were such as Fruity Loops and Mu tools. Some of my compositions were published in internet at some musical sites and after got some good comments from other musicians. One of my last work called “A New Zealand Trip” I made with collaboration of my friend living in Australia, another musician but playing a guitar. We made a clip from video record of his vacation trip. Soundtrack is mine and a video is his. Name of my creative project was “Arrioph”.
As I said before I used to do my hobby being a kid but nowadays I don’t. There are lots of other things I’m interested in now. Frankly said I can’t affirm that I lost my interest to music creation at all. Sometimes when my leasure time and having my wish I do a bit and continue listening to some styles of this kind of music.

How are you doing? I like to listen to music especially "The Beatles" but I hate playing a musical instrument. When I was 13 I was playing the guitar but eventually, I couldn't stand it. Have a nice day, see you tomorrow.

I've never been in a band, but I used to play guitar and my teacher gathered his students which play different instruments to play together and it was really fun. My favorite music genere is rock and pop I hate rap but sometimes it's nice to hear rap in the middle of songs like linkin park music.

I'm in a band, actually, in an orchestra. I studied music since I was a child, and I've always been in a musical group, or singing in chorus, playing the cello or, now, directing. In general, I play classical music, but there is fantastic folk music in my country, like tango, which I also play. I hope to continue making music until my last day. Music is the most beautiful art.

Hello everyone, I have not been in a band. But I have played guitar for 2 months. When I broke up my ex-boyfriend, I was so sad and I started playing the guitar. Now I don't play guitar anymore but I still love it. The music makes me happy and glad so.

Hello everyone, I was not in the group either. I played the piano 1-2 times. When I studied at school. I was so nice. but my husband and daughter are starting to play the guitar. I still love it. Music pleases and makes me and my family happy.

thanks you all ^_^

hi, I thought so too at first. and then I thought it was so pricey, it seems to me

Is Sunday the first or the last day of the week in England?

Hello AlexS,

For most people in day-to-day life, Monday is the first day of the week.

Some religious traditions (particularly Judaism and take Sunday as the first day, since it is the first day after the traditional Jewish day of rest (Saturday). Traditional Christian calendars also take Sunday as the first day of the week. In Islam, it is more varied. Some Muslims see Saturday as the first day of the week as it follows the traditional day of rest on Friday, while others follow the Jewish tradition.
