We all know the piano is the best instrument ever invented (!!!) but what is your next favourtie instrument - either to play or listen to?

I like to sing, and I could listen to string quartets/other small strings ensembles, and choral works for hours on end. Carmina Burana is really fun to listen to. And then on the other end of the mood spectrum is Brahms' German Requiem... gorgeous.

I choose other...I love piano the most of course its the greatest instrument but i also am learning to play guitar and it's also a wonderful instrument.You really have to develope you ear because you have to tune them yourself and it's rewarding though your fingers get sore for the first few weeks.( I also love violin i think i will start learning it but not for awile money and time just won't permit it)

I love harp music. One of my favorite weddings was one in which all of the music was performed by a harpist. Absolutely exquisite.
In fact, my sweet husband actually bought a harp for me 2 Christmases ago (not a full-size one), but it turned out to be a very humbling experience for me! I had forgotten how difficult it is to learn a new instrument! I think it helped me be a more empathetic piano teacher though, experiencing firsthand the frustration of wanting my fingers to do something and they just wouldn't quite do it right!

Piano was my "first love" and always will be! Nothing can match it, to my mind, but I do like other instruments, namely, the violin, the guitar, the accordion, and voice.
I love each of these for their sounds, of course: the violin for its beautiful, heart-tugging quality, the guitar for its versatility in accompaniment/playing, the accordion for its full sound and cheery harmony, and voice, because...well, because of its richness of expression, and so much more besides.
It would be nice if I could learn to perform well with all of these, and who knows, maybe I will.

I play many instruments, but my true passion is the piano. I have played the viola, cello, drums, french horn, oboe, guitar, the list goes on. I don't find it too surprising that almost every other instrument sounds great when paired with a piano.

I've been playing the piano for eight years and the guitar for about eight months. I'm taking guitar lessons from a working musician who teaches on the side and I can't believe how much progress I've made in such a short time. I can strum many chords with various techniques but it's fingerstyle playing that I really love. My fingertips are sore as heck , but the guitar is just such a fascinating and versatile instrument. Eric Clapton....watch out!

I love piano the best and have been playing it since I was 4 but recently I decided to take voice lessons. I've also started learning some guitar. It's interesting to learn something new... it also reminds me what it's like to be a student which helps my teaching as well! I'm especially enjoying the voice lessons!

Voice for me ... I love voice ... and piano ofcourse. Since I was little I asked my mum for piano lessons. She gave in ... and I still love it! My love for music in particular piano has grown.
Lately I have taken voice lessons and its a new way of thinking for me. The instrument is built internally, unlike piano I can see my hands and feet ... voice ... I have to imagine and feel my way into things. Its a new learning curve I love both instuments!
