This came up in another thread, and i got to wondering: How many of the Muppet Central members are musicians? what instrument do you play, and what type of music? do you play professionally? or just for fun? and WHY did you get started? personally, i'm a trombone/low brass player. in other words, i CAN play the other stuff, but i prefer trombone. i've been playing, off and on, since i was 10. i got started because my dad is also a trombone player, and there is a recording of him in high school that is him, playing "Flight of the Bumblebees" on a trombone. i know it's really him too because it was a recording that his high-school made, and his name is the credit for it. i've never played "professionally" (never gotten money for it), but i have done quite a few pit orchestras for local theater groups. but if they try and make me play "A Chorus Line" one more time, someone's getting hurt...i'm not the only one in Indy that can play a high "c" (bass clef) on a trombone. i'll play anything people put in front of me, though the instrument is limiting in the genres it'll work in. so i play mostly classical (Hungarian Dance #5 is one of my favorites to play), jazz, and every now and then some SKA. my favorite musical moment is playing on stage with the Dallas Brass. they were really great guys, and picked some of us to join them for a number. we had a DAY to learn the music, but those of us they picked were pretty good friends, and hammed it up so much we made them laugh.
