    I am the only one in my family, although many of my family members, and all of my nieces and nephews, play some instrument or another. Some of them multiple instruments.

    My nephew likes to play around on my harp and I think he has potential, but he is totally obsessed with playing the guitar right now.

    I visited my relatives last summer and brought my Celtic harp, Maeve, up with me. My favorite cousins (both a year or two younger than me) are very musical but don’t play instruments. They loved my harp! I tought them how to tune and let them play with the harp. They were so happy. My mother always wanted to play the harp but never got the chance. I am, however, the only one in our extended family who plays the harp.

    Kay,

    My nephew plays acoustic guitar (alternative style) as a semi-professional, and my son plays classical piano as a hobbyist.
