Wow I wish my parents had started me when I was in third grade!
I didn't start playing percussion and cello until I was in 5th grade. I played cello until my 8th grade year (that's 6 years ago that I stopped), but every once in a while I like to play around with it.
I have been playing percussion for almost 10 years now, but not actively since i graduated HS two years ago. I had some success at region/all-state bands but now I suck :/ I have no more chops and regularly get showed up by kids who still play.
I've played the guitar and taken lessons for abot four years. I'm still OK, though, not super good
I made a pan flute once in grade five for a music project. If only I could find it, I would edit it to make a Spirit Flute!:xd:
