I technically play several instruments, but the core instruments I play would be the cello and the piano. I started piano when I was 6 (I'm now 16). I started the cello 3 years ago, with also a 8 month pause due to cello injuries (and it just rebroke..cello repairs are so expensive!!) I played clarinet for 3 years during middle school/early high school, and also the penny whistle (way to go Annalyse!). I love all these different instruments, some more than others, but they are all unique, fun, and I'll admit challenging at times!
While I'm definitely not a composer, I love to play by ear and make stuff up on the piano. Most of my music experience comes from many opportunities I have been given in my church to serve. The more opportunities that have opened, the more I have had to practice, and It has definitely stretched me. So I would encourage you to embrace your instrument(s) and learn as much as you can about it and go all out for God's glory. You never know how He might allow you to impact others through music and how you might get to serve Him! Never stop pushing yourself!
