I play bass, drums, guitar, violin, cello,and piano. Started learning to play instruments when I was 3 or 4, and played very seriously up until around age 11.

Why did you get less serious about it?

I didn't have any way of accessing instruments again from that point up until about a two years ago, and felt any strong urge to get back into it.

I am very much jealous of people with musical talent. I just can't learn how to read music sheets. The best I ever managed to accomplish was watching a demo on a keyboard over and over so that I could play part of Für Elise. I always loved and wanted to learn how to play the piano and violin.

You just need to figure out a way to relate with it I think.

Reading music is like reading a new language. Honestly, you can do it. =D It's a lot easier to start with a simple instrument where you can associate the note you see with finger positions on it. (Piano is terrible for this if only because it's so big and you have to look everywhere.) I started on the recorder, and that was dead easy to learn an octave. Once the basics are down, it's easy from there!

Possibly. The problem I have though now is 0 motivation to do anything. Every time I have tried in the past I just can't process the fact that x note = C and C = that key on the piano quick enough to actually play anything. So I just gave up and called my brain inadequate for such a task. I then focused on other simpler skills that don't have anything to do with music.

I did learn the recorder decently well in school as it was required for music class. Unfortunately every single thing I learned I have completely lost now. One day I might be able to force myself into trying it all again and would go with something like that to start off with. I never really considered something like that as being a possible first step for learning the more complicated things.

I think there is fun and reward in the challenge of over coming these things.

Yea I agree, music is really easy to read once you learn it right.

Hey guys! I've been playing piano since I was 5 and have been writing my own Electronic Dance Music for over 8 years now. I have dabbled in the art of DJing as well.

Music for me is a really fun and enjoyable past time. I love how music affects my emotions from one song to the next. There are some songs that I can listen to over and over again without ever getting bored of it.

I listen to Inner universe from ghost in the shell non stop sometimes when I am in a thinking mood.
