I'm 19, though I'll be 20 in a little over a month. I'm working on a music degree in University right now, and I've been playing for about 8 years. I've been performing for much longer though, as I'm a pianist as well (which I've been doing for about 15-16 years now). Flute is more my passion though, so that's what I'm studying in school. : )

I am 39. Been playing flute for approximately 15years. Started out on Cello and Guitar at 7 years old, played professionally at 14. Now I play 30% Music, and 70% Engineering for income. Presently working in Japan. I play flute more often than guitar these days. I stopped playing cello 20 years ago.

I started in fourth grade, so I'm finishing up my fourth year. I feel really lucky to have started at such a young age. My mom didn't start playing until eigth grade.

It usually depends on what I.D. I need to use but I’m typically 16. A beginner though so what I say can usually be ignored.
Huh and who are you?

Turned 36 over the weekend, began playing in 1981 (!?!). Don't even say, "Geez, I wasn't born then!". As I'm relatively well-preserved, I hear that from incredulous teens quite a lot (they usually guess 22 :shock: ). I have a music ed degree (flute & bassoon), and most of a Masters. I play in two regional orchestras and sing in two good choirs, and play chamber music with my husband ('cellist). I suspect flute/band was the sole motive for many of us to go to school, LOL. :D
