If you could learn to play a musical instrument, one which you've never played before, which would you choose and why?
Yay, finally updating! So, if I could learn how to play an musical instrument, I think I'd choose the saxophone. Why? Well, I already play a whole bunch of other instruments, but I hardly play any real woodwind instruments, so I think it'd be fun playing something new.
On the topic of musical instruments, in 6th grade, my old school would let the people who wanted to play band try out the instruments we wanted. Based on how much you wanted to play said instruments, you would be assigned them in the 6th grade band. For example, I wanted to play the baritone, no doubt about it. But I had to have two other choices, so I went with clarinet and percussion (the latter of which I now play in marching band). When I was called in by my band teacher, I played all three, and told her which I enjoyed the most. Baritone trumped all.
I think the main reason I chose to play the baritone was because of a lot of the members of my family play woodwind instruments. My big brother played the bass clarinet, my mom plays flute, my aunt played oboe, and my uncle plays saxophone. So yeah, there's my reason, I wanted to be unique and play a low brass instrument.
Anyway, I think I'd like to learn how to play the saxophone.
Oh, and here's a question for you, is the piano a string instrument, because it has strings, or a percussion, because it involves hitting something with something else?
(I seriously don't know)
