Weekly t-shirt Challenge: Your musical hobby

    Musical Hobbies

    I have to admit, I may have enjoyed the pictures of your work places more than any of the other shirt challenges so far.  Looks like we were all equally impressed with @Andrew Booth's floating home and office!  If you haven't seen it, you really should go back and look.

    I've asked about your hobbies before, but this week let's talk about music.  Most everyone participates in music in some way.  I sing in a chamber choir and my colleague @Jeffrey Bisti plays the guitar.  Do you play an instrument or are you a master of the playlist?  Do you play the drums or maybe you have an impressive way of tapping your pencil on a desk?  Let's hear all about it!

    The rules:
    1.  Every Thursday, I'll start a new discussion thread titled Weekly Challenge.

    2.  This week, reply to the thread with your musical hobby.  

    3.  Vote for your favorite entries by clicking the "Recommend" button next to your favorites.

    4.  The following Thursday, I'll announce the winner and start the next week's thread.

    5.  The person submitting the item with the most votes will receive one of these Legends of Z t-shirts (or equivalent)!

    Formal training on Trumpet (+ other brass instruments) as well as Violin. Self taught on percussion and electric keyboard. I believe that once someone learns how to read sheet music, they can learn any instrument.
