    But want to learn something new.

    I played the piano for about fifteen years before I switched over to other string instruments such as guitar and bass. Now I am foremost a guitarist, and all the years of piano improv certainly taught me a great deal about harmony.

    Piano is not only a great performance instrument, but a great learning tool for those that wish to progress to other instruments.

    It becomes part of you only if you accept it... only if you want it... only if it meshes with your personality.

    I was basically forced to start on piano, so whenever I had a chance to switch to guitar, I did so.

    So while it didn't 'become part of me', I still give it credit for being a majestic instrument that taught me a lot about harmony in music.

    I've been playing for about 13 years I think.

    Classical was a bore. Then I saw this guy who could just play a piece after listening to it after a couple of times. I really wanted to be like him. So I went back and keep trashing about on the piano until I've got it.

    I'm hardly as good as him, but I've got my own style. Improv is awesome. Classical is a bore :D

    My grandmother was a classical pianist in her youth (and quite popular from what I understand) and was our little town's piano and violin teacher, and my mother played piano on local TV on a show called "the Country Boy Eddie Show" (it's the same show where Tammy Wynette and the Judds were discovered, and where Porter Wagoner first saw Dolly Parton) so I grew up playing both since before I can even remember. I guess that adds up to about forty years. The good thing about playing the violin is that if you can play the violin, you already have all of the essentials down for playing mandolin, too, so I learned that early, too.

    My dad also played piano, guitar, and banjo.

    I have been playing piano and violin since I was tiny, almost 20yrs now. I love music, and would love to play the soprano saxophone and the harp.
