I used to be much more of a musician than I am now. It's hard to play guitar, or even keyboards, for that matter when you have a baby or toddler at the breast all the time.

My husband was a semi-professional musician, he was in a few bands, played in bars and clubs. I've never played professionally, but have most of an album on 4 track hidden in the little recording studio in our basement. I haven't listened to it in years. My husband has recorded tons of music, although he never put any of it on CD to sell. I think one of his bands had cassette tapes to sell at their shows, but it was so long ago, I can't remember the details.

We used to sing our babies to sleep every night.

My fiancee and I are both musicians, but we keep it in the house mostly.

I am not a musician, but my husband plays brass and programs electronic music.

I'm pretty much an audiophile. Life without music is no life at all My iTunes library right now is at 43459 tracks, and everywhere I go I always make sure my iPhone or iPad is upto date with whatever I listen to most at the time...

I've played electric guitar since I was 15, but this past year it's been sporadic since Alan has taken a fascination to long fingernails. For those who don't know, it's almost impossible to fret guitar chords with long nails. We compromise though--- I go awhile with the nails for him, then cut them off and go back to playing for a while.

I used to sing. I don't have the confidence anymore.

I occasionally "sing" karaoke. I'm not very good, so I usually sing with my roommate close by so I can hide my terrible voice behind her amazing one :-D

I listen to music and sing while listening but you do not want to hear me sing. I just bought my three year old one of those paper guitars and he has two other children's guitars, but he is showing signs that he might be a musician. We are encouraging this playing him his favorite band's (Soulfly) Music videos all the time he jams on the guitar and tries to heavy metal sing. It is the cutest thing!

I started workin' professionally @ 13 with a local big band, then @ 16 auditioned and got in the local symphony. Been working in some capacity ever since. Taking a day job for 12 years kinda put a dent in things, but since I gave that up to become a stay-at-home dad, I've been getting a lot more work.

Funny enough, out and about is either jazz or classical, but most of my own studio time has been fleshing out my alter ego collaborating with a childhood friend in Seattle.

I can play violin, viola, cello and bass well. I can play the Meow Mix song on guitar but that is the extent of my guitar playing knowledge. I can use a synth somewhat, and I know how to mix music on Renoise if that counts at all. I tried the flute and didn't like it so I didn't learn much, and I love to sing but I'm not good at it at all. I do plenty of it in the car anyway

It may seem strange, but I don't like music. I am however, neutral to almost all music types, so it's great to whomever I ride in the car with.

I Love music, and am honestly addicted to it. I don't think I could deal without it. I sing (though not often for others), and I was in band for many years when I was younger. I have been slowly learning the piano over the past year as well.

I play some instruments, and I love to sing (especially if no one's around).

I am very musically inclined, but quit playing, singing and recording for a while there. My man, however, has been a huge encouragement to me to get back into it - so I am. I'm doing a lot more, and recording more, and it really feels great. I'd love to make a living at it, and my man encourages me in that department too... but it just seems like so much work, and the industry seems to cater to the younger artists so much anymore. But I am a lot happier with music in my life!

LOVE music. We have music on constantly at our house. Sometimes there's a different type of music playing in 2 diff. rooms... at the same time! LOL. That way I can hear something I like in my room and while cleaning I can hear another type that I like! Lol. My music involvement is me listening and I sing too... but that does not mean anybody would ever want to hear it! Lol

I sing badly and play the violin. The violin is mostly just for stress relief these days. My days of practicing for hours each week and playing in front of others are long over.

I've played various instruments in my life, but never mastered anything. My favorite in the world is my bass guitar, which I still play from time to time, but don't perform or anything... Music is important to me, and I always want to sing along to everything.

All my friends are musicians except me. :| They all try to get me into bands with them, but it just doesn't interest me much.

I play most instruments, some better than others. I'm going to college to become a music teacher for any grade level, so I've had to learn how to play ALL the instruments you'd find in a symphonic band or an orchestra. (Clarinet, Piano, and Guitar are my preferred ones as they're the ones I learned to play when I was younger.) I'm also a professional musician (Also a music major at my university) so...yeah.

Just listen, instruments are lost on me. I once took a guitar class online for high school credit. I finished the class and was done with that.
