I have never played music instrument in my private. I had to played them in music class in school, but I obviously could not play well. I can not even read musical notation. this is critical my fault, I regretted not working hard on music class because I am not interested in any music, but most of people have their own favorite type of music and can appreciate it. I think sense of music or art grow our abilities such as ability to concentration, sense of rythem, or language expression. those ability should be cultivated in childhood.

Good evening,

What's up?

unfortunately, I never played any instrument or had a band. If I could, I would choose Rock'n roll as style. I've just dreamed in the bath as a famous pop star.

See you around,

when i was young, i had been likee music. it makes me happy when i'm sad and it covers space in my mind, i like to play guita and piano but i still have a lot of money to buy it and learn it. i listen music everyday, especially english song and i also study singing these song.
can you help me sing english song good?

Hello flamboyant,

I'm not sure I can give advice on this as I'm a terrible singer myself! All I can suggest is that you listen and copy, using versions of songs with the lyrics so you know which words to sing. You can find these on YouTube by typing the name of the song and adding the word 'lyrics' to the end.

Best wishes,

hi, I like sing and play guitar. Also I want learn to play piano. Four or five years ago I record my first CD. Today I am working in others melodies.
The music mean much to me and make me feel happy.

Good bye

When I was young , I played piano and saxophone . I played them on the music class at school. Really it was so much interesting. But I didn't continue practicing them . . It needs so much time to become good at it.

When I was young I liked to play piano , but at that time it was difficult to have one . Some times I play drums but unfortunately I'm not good drummer.I 'd rather hear music than play it.

Two years ago i tried to learn to play guitar, but i didn't can because it's so difficult to me. I like to mix music with a mix table an and create a new songs whit a sintetycer.

I never have been playing guitar on a stag\e, in front of spectators. I used  playing guitar only at home , in my room. Why? I enjoy playing guitar very much, but except me no one else can stand my performance .

I haven't never had a music band. I play a turtle shell and small bowl on water, like Mesoamerican instruments when I studied nahuatl langage! It was a "antique music band". It was completely informal, we play "fond music" for a nahatl poetry reading. Very crazy....
