Actually, I have never played in a band because I live in the countryside and there is no band here. I've always wanted to play in a band after school so I will feel relaxed and then I can reduce stress. It is also very great to stand in front of the crowds and do something special. I want to hear that applause and see enthusiastic people.

I've never been in a band.
But I want to to be part of a band.

I never played in a band but I would like to be part of a musical band. Last year in December my wife has given me an musical instrument. I don't know how it called but I try to describe it. It's small it was about twenty centimetres and when you want to sing with it you have to use your mouth to blow in it.I enjoy this musical instrument and a start to practice every week, so who knows maybe one day I will bee better and I will start a band .

Hello everyone from Brazil.
I am in a band now and we've been playing together since 2009. The name of our band is "Rei Kolonx" and we cover classical rock and roll bands - from seventies at most - like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Doors, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Rainbow, Jimi Hendrix, Jethro Tull and so on. As we rehearse almost every week, our band has become better and better - we really understand that practice makes perfect. In fact, we love playing music. I am the leader singer of "Rei kolonx", but I've already played with other bands - since I was 16 - and in choir for 6 years. The others musicians of "Rei Kolonx" have been playing for almost 27 years. Perhaps it can show we are really passionate for playing music! We don't earn money to make a living with "Rei Kolonx", but at the same time when we are playing for others, we really play with our hearts and we always realize we can transmit those feelings for others, which makes us very happy.

I have not ever been in a band but when i was a kid there was a fancy to play drums in a band even though i' had not ability to play them.Now a days i like to learn play guitars.
So far i cant play any kind of musical instruments.

No, I never be in Band

I haven't ever been in a band. Because, I hadn't any musical instrument. When I was eighteen and in my summer holiday, I tried play a guitar. My uncle sister's husband teach me. But after my holiday I couldn't play again. I want to play any musical instrument. I bought a guitar. I'm going to learn it.

Until last year I played the most difficult instrument, the voice. He was a singer in a choir of mixed voices. He sang in the group Baritones. We sang beautiful songs in Latin America, Godspels, and other popular and classical pieces of the World. Sometimes we participate in choirs and operas of Verdi, Puccini, Pietro Mascagni, Leoncavallo.
It was a very interesting activity that led us to act in prestigious theaters in Venezuela, Colombia, Cuba, Peru. We are currently removed from the chorus but always ready to continue.

I really love music. I can play the guitar and the bamboo flute but this isn't very good, just in a basically level. actually, people say that i have a good voice and i also feel that. Sometime i sing in front of row, lots of people, such as my school, and those were almost quite good. so when i got in university, i decided to play guitar to support my songs, but just for my pleasure, it couldn't be in the event, the show, because it's too basic way. Now i don't play guitar very often anymore, focusing on my study, and english is one of those, love learning English, also British council.
Thank you, best wishes.
