I think that I was about 7 years old when the entire class were given a Recorder lesson at school. I was so bad, and not musically minded at all, that I've never bothered to try and learn any musical instruments since.

I have never owned a musical instrument. The closest I've come to playing an instrument is to play a part of Sheila E's "Glamorous Life" on my cousin's Cassion electronic keyboard It was the late 80's, what can I say. Someone showed him and then he showed me. I also learned to intro to Jingle Bells thanks to some toy piano my little sister had growing up. And the movie Big got me to figure out the repeating melody to Chopsticks (I think that's the name of the song) that Tom Hanks played on the huge keyboard in the toy store.

I've been playing tuba for a while. I don't own one, but I can play it fairly well.
I've played bass trombone for 4 years.
I can play tenor trombone, baritone, some percussion, and a little bit of piano and guitar, but I've never seriously played any of them.
I don't own anything other than some pairs of drumsticks, because it's not too common to own those large instruments unless you get really serious about it. If someone wants a tuba player for something, they usually provide a tuba.

As a percussionist in high school, I marched second bass drum and focused on mallet percussion instruments (marimba, vibraphone, xylophone, etc.) for the rest of the year. I have an electronic piano keyboard today that I still like to play for fun.
i've played clarinet since i was 9, all through school bands and now in my university's hip-hop orchestra! i also have self-taught myself how to play piano over the years; i'm not super great at it but i love learning how to play video game and popular music on it. playing songs with intricate left and right hand parts simultaneously always takes quite a while for me to get used to. i've also dabbled in guitar a bit, i bought an acoustic-electric a couple years ago and know how to play a few songs.
in the future, i'd love to learn how to play cello and/or saxophone!
I'm an all-rounder percussionist, so I have played a plethora of percussion instruments over the years. As for the instruments I own, I have a recorder, a concert snare, and a small electronic keyboard somewhere. I haven't touched those in years. I also own a five piece drum kit, with a variety of cymbals and toys to go with it. These days, that is what I play the most, and I play set still on a weekly basis.

When I was in grade school, I played the auto harp, and of course the recorder we all got. In high school, I learned to play the piano. I got pretty good with that since we had an upright piano at home which came with me when my husband and I bought our first house. Sadly we had to sell the piano so it's been years since I've played, and the Casio keyboard I got doesn't have all the keys I need to play both hands correctly, so sadly it's sitting in my closet gathering dust.
