I play the harmonica; being active duty for 22 years made it hard to play and travel with any other instruments but the harmonica was always in my pocket. Its a cool instrument that you can play at any given time either with or without others. I have several of them.
I played the Violin for several years in school, but once I graduated I haven't touched in since. I wanted to play the flute, but since I had braces back then my parents said no... LOL I have ALWAYS wanted to play the piano, and one of these days I will learn!!! My son played the euphonium, and saxophone in HS, and my daughter took piano (didn't like it... go figure!) and now she is playing the electric guitar.

RIP beloved boy.
I play the piano and the guitar. But, I'm not very good. I basically taught myself to play because I love to sing and I want to sing with accompaniment. Then, of course, karaoke machines became popular...
My son is 12 and he's crazy talented. I enrolled him in piano lessons when he was only 4 because I was worried that he would have big trouble in Kindergarten because he couldn't sit still for more than 2 minutes. So, I thought, if he can learn to sit still for a 30-minute music lesson, he'll be ready for Kindergarten. I told the piano teacher that I really don't care if he learns to play the piano, I just want him to learn to sit still... and she was just fine with it. Well, lo and behold, the kid got amazing talent!
He's 12 now and he is very very very good at it. The problem is - he's not dedicated to it! It drives me insane when I spent the better part of a year when I was his age trying to learn to play Moonlight Sonata and still until today, couldn't quite get it. And he sits on the piano for a few minutes in a week and learns the first movement! It drives me insane because if he would spend as much time on the piano as he does with his video games, he'd be Mozart! Or heck, Justin Bieber! It drives me bananas!
My 10 year old is a drummer. He's not as talented as my 12 year old, but he is like me. He works at it. And he and I can play some songs together with me on my guitar.
Our favorite right now is Demons by Imagine Dragons.
I got Bullied and loving it!
