Many of us were required to learn instruments in school, so many would have an answer to this question, even if they aren’t currently playing them. When talking about instruments, you can ask how long they’ve been playing for if they do play, or tips about playing an instrument for beginners. Who knows, you might learn a thing or two so you’ll be ready when you pick up that instrument one day.
Q: What instruments do you play?
A: I play the piano and used to play the alto saxophone. I’m starting to learn how to use the midi so I can play many more instruments electronically.
So, what instruments are you familiar with?
