I can play a tiny bit of keyboard, and got gade 4 flute. I didn't find reading music too bad apart from where there's treble clef and bass clef in keyboard music but I think that was because I was so used to reading in treble clef.

I've played recorder, violin and a little keyboard. I taught myself to play "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" on keyboard, but spsrt from that, I'm hopless! I'm 14 and I'm gonna drop music ASAP! :x

I've been playing piano since I was four years old, but I only became seriously interested when I turned 12, and since then, I've reached grade 8 standard and am tackling a jazz staple called Cherokee - I think that if I'd known about my dyspraxia sooner, I won't have tried so hard to be as good and better than the people around me; and now that I know and I'm already so far along, I'm trying even harder, knowing that it's a miracle that I can do anything.

hey i play probably the most challanging instrument for a dyspraxic..... the drums!!!! i have been playing them since i was about 13 and i taught myself how to play by listening to the beat of the song and memorising it so i could play along, it is still a struggle to play the drums even after all these years but learning an instrument just takes time and dedication so stick with it and dont give up!!!!! (also i am a FEMALE drummer to heavy metal music like metallica, avenged sevenfold and more recently a german band called rammstein)

I want to play drums, my music teacher said I have good rhythm, but I don't have the money to buy drums. Also I have a slight obsession with rhythm.
