Have you ever been in a band? What was the name of your band? What musical instrument do you play? What style of music do you play? Are you still playing? And, if not, why did you stop?

We love reading your comments and we reply to some of them each episode.

You're not silly at all, dear friend. You know, my English is not good and every written language - I think - is sometimes uncertain and ambiguous: this is why the poetry exists.
I really appreciate your honesty.

The podcast was great. Talking about being in a band, well, I've never been in one. Neither do I know to play any instrument. But, I love singing. I do sing when my heart wants to but rarely on any special occasion. 

I play saxophofone since 1993. Today we have 68 sax in the band. We have a big band in my church here in my city we are around 700 musicians. There are violin, clarinet, piston, cello and other instrument.
We have church at UK  especific in a city (Brent).
I hope one day play with my brothers in UK.

I love this series, because I can practice a lot.
Thank you very much.
Anyway. The topic of this week is about instruments and bands.
When a was a child i was in a Band. A school band. Later, when I was a young I had a band with my friends. I played the guitar. We were only twice in from of public, but I remember it as a good experience.

I have never been in a band, but I love music. I have a dream that one day I could play the guitar. I will take classes for it.
I love the Elementary podcasts so much and the Learn English team too. Thanks everyone for your beautiful work. It's helping me a lot. 
I hope that one day you could comment  my comments in one podcast.

HI everyone I like all the music and when i was young started in a rock band with my friends in the school the name of the band was "dead flowers" like the song of the rolling stones band and i always play the drums I'm not very brilliant like Jamie said, but i like to play a lot.
best wishes.   

hi guys 
i got the new world to learn english

Hi  i like music but I'm not a band member but when i was in grade 10 i did music  as a subject and i used to play the piano and now I'm learning to play guitar .If i start a band i will name it as" HOPE  "

i like music but i have never been in a band. if i will play in a band i would love to play a guitar. when i was younger i tried to get in music school. but the school was so far from home and my parent did not encourage me to do it. 

Hello guys!
I enjoy so much the podcasts! I was always interested in British English and here I can try and learn it, thank you for your help :D
About the subject... yes, I was in aband when I was 13. I used to play the drums, I thought I was Ringo Starr :) Our band was called "As Borbulhantes" in Portuguese (The Bubble Girls) and we played rock n' roll like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who and Elvis. But then we broke up because we were too bad :) Now I'm 19 ( and my friends are around 21) and we both gave up of doing music, but I've to admit we had a great time. 
See you :D
