    I've started having cello lessons again, after dropping it a while back to concentrate on saxophone and piano.

    However, I picked up a cello in the music room at school a few weeks back and started playing, and realised I missed it. It's great playing it again.

    For violin, I get between 45 and and hour each week, but they're going to stop soon. My singing lessons were 25 minutes because they were in school and my teacher had a tight timetable, but at uni they'll probably be about an hour a week. I don't take lessons for piano (yet).

    Hello!!

    I've been playing the violin for 9 years, the guitar for 6-7 years now and I can play the piano a bit, as well!
    I also sing and write music and lyrics.

    I've been in an orchestra for 3 years, a band for a year, had a couple of lives and.. that's pretty much it!!

    Nice to meet you all!!

    I play flute, to an almost-there grade 8 standard- taking my exam next year.. :gulp: But been playing for about 7 years now.
    I also play piano to grade 2, and now I'm self-teaching.. Been playing for 2 years.
    Also "self-taught" guitar, but I don't get much time for it, and only started a few months ago.

    Guitar (grade 6 standard but haven't taken the exam) and voice.
    I'm self teaching at the moment because I don't have enough money for lessons.
