Did they follow your lead? she flirted with the clarinet- it wasn't for her.. her voice is her instrument

Favorite female artist?Gonna have to go with Bonnie Raitt on this one.
Favorite male artist? --  This one is tougher, although I think I'll stick with Lyle Lovett.
Favorite group/band? -- Again, tough. All three of these answers change with my mood, stage in life, etc.   But Bonnie and Lyle are always at the top of the l ist.  For group/band, right now I'd have to say Mumford & Sons (I'm still on a high from their concert/tour).
Have you seen any of the above live? -- All, yes.  Lyle three times.

In school...did you play an instrument?   -- Yes
If so, what?, Clarinet
Do any of your kids play an instrument? The Girl plays clarinet, but is also in the colorguard. She much prefers guard and is better at it than she is the clarinet. The Boy plays trumpet and is very good.
Did they follow your lead? -- somewhat

Are you, or any of your family members a musician, either as a way of life, or as a hobby? 
Tell us about it!  :) -- My entire family is musical - I'm the least musical out of them all.  My sister is a music therapist and also teaches a course and private lessons at a community college.  My brothers both play guitar (lead and bass) and keyboard and have been in various bands over the years. The youngest one is currently playing very reguarly with a local band that just released their second album - they've been busy with gigs 2-3x a week for the past 6 months or so.  My parents both played piano and guitar - never officially in a band but have done a lot of just jammin' with friends, etc.  My musical role in the family is to appreciate the music, lol.
