What musical instruments do ya'll play?

I never really learned to play an instrument, though I attempted piano starting at age 18 and took voice lessons for several years. I tried cello one summer and made it through the first Suzuki book but then stopped.  I consider myself a music drop out.

But i am living  vicariously through my family.  DH plays piano (clarinet, too, but it's been years).  DD plays piano, violin and saxophone, and DS plays saxophone and guitar.

Our instrument collection includes 4 saxophones, piano, dulcimer, recorders, guitars, violin, and the ancient clarinet, all the way down to the Kazoo which I now favor.

Just curious what you all play, how long you kept at it, what instruments you have floating around your houses. 

Not sure if I am allowed to do this, but my brother makes top of the line hand crafted cajons. They had a booth at NAMM last month for the first time, and Longineu Parsons of Yellowcard became their first endorsement. So if you play percussion, check them out!

I play the piano, drums, guitar and used to play the sax.  I can play simple songs on the flute, and keep up on the bass.  And I love to sing!

Yay music! I'm a music major, studying to become an opera singer. I LOVE it!  :)>>>
I wish i could play an instrument, but alas, I didn't even realize I could sing until I was 17, and got my first voice lesson at 18.
I play piano very very badly. I can play my scales, and progressions I had to learn for theory, but c'est tout.

I'm super excited because this semester, we're doing opera scenes from Hansel and Gretel, and I'm the Sandman and the Dew Fairy, so I get to sing 2 little arias in front of a couple hundred people. :D
Last year I played Fiordiligi in Cosi Fan Tutte. Best time of my life so far.
Oh the stage. My one true love.  :)>>>

Dums! I have since I was 8 years old, got serious around 14 when I got my double bass pedal. We have piano, drums. guitar, bass, some minor pentatonic flute, and a recorder !!

I have my A.S. from M.C.C. in music and I'm currently still playing and practicing with better accuracy, especially due to the theory training. Piano has become a beautiful insturment as well !!

I just started to learn to play guitar about a week ago. I'm loving it so far, but I have no feeling in the finger tips of my right hand currently. (I'm learning to play left handed) :)
