I have never been in a band before, but I love to do it. I love singing and usually sing when I take a shower. If I had a change to be in a band, I would like to be a vocal. For me, singing make me understand more about myself and connect with the soul of artist through their song. I hope one day, I will have a chance to stand in a stage and show my voice for everyone.
P/s: My grammar is't good, so I hope somebody will fix it for me. Thanks

Hello Sam Bùi,

Thanks very much for sharing this. You made me think about singing in a different way.

I'm afraid we don't provide the service of correcting users' texts, but I can say that I had no trouble understanding what you wrote and that the grammar is quite good.

We'd be very happy to see more comments like yours from our users and I hope to see another one from you soon!

When I was a child I played flute at school.
I've never been in a band but I would have liked to learn to play an instrument

Hi everyone,
I played drum in school band when ı was at secondary school. Although I loved to play drum, There was no chance to continue. I always want to do a job that I can do using my talents like art or sport. In my opinion singing or playing piano, violin and so on in front of thousands people is quite impressive and satisfying and whenever I go to a concert, I wish I could do something like this.

Hi everyone. I have never been in a band but I always wanted to be in a music band and have a lots of money and beautiful woman, expensive cars and house. I unfortunately I haven't any musical talent such as play the guitar or play on saxophone or just singing. I can't play any musical instrument.

I used to play flute when i was young about 12 years old. Actually i didn't have any formal class for flute, it was my long desire flute so i bought it from a causeway shop when there was a carnival in our hometown at that time.

I used to play electric piano when i was young, it was really fascinating to me, i used to spend lots of time playiny on my piano, but unfortunatly i stopped when i grew up, as i was supposed to go for academic study for this to be professional instead of being an amater.
But any way it was enjoyable time for me.

when ı was young there was a entertaintment in famous hotel in Ankara,Turkey.The entertaintment name was Beatles sing a song competation.programme prepared by The Brıtısh Council workers in Ankara.I and my brother joıned that competation and we won a plaque from Brıtısh Council.I played drum and my brother played guitar.We found bass guitar player in saloon.What a big chance for us because after we played we heard bass guıtar player was a responcıble for that competation .His names is Endy.That day was very very exited for me and ı wıll never forget that beatifull nı the same tıme that day was my bırthday.That was a big present for me.Thank you for your organisation Brıtısh Council

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.
