      I tried learning the trumpet back in elementary school without success.
      but I have a story that relates crossdressing and musicians.

      I’ve crossdressed from an early age.
      having pretty strong feelings they my fiancé would never accept so I purged about a week before our wedding . when I started crossdressing again about three years in I contemplated telling my wife.
      I had a good friend who played in a rock band, never made it big but they were pretty good. One day my wife and I are at another friends house and he tells us how our friend in the bands girlfriend likes it when he wears her panties underneath while playing on stage. I right away think “ lucky bastard “ I look at my wife who has this disgusted look on her face and says “ that’s sick” my friend then reply’s to my surprise “ hey if they both enjoy it what’s the harm” my wife (now ex wife)
      looks at me and says “don’t get any ideas “
      needless to say I canned my idea of telling her.
      when she did discover I wore panties several years later she reacted just the way I though she would. She never did or would accept any aspect of crossdressing.

      I was once a French Horn player. These days I play flute.

      This thread really has some longevity! I love that so many of us girls are musicians. (And I could care less if you are a “professional…”. If you make music, you are a musician.)

      I’ve been pretty public about posting my music here, and it’s largely because accepting myself as female has unlocked my confidence as a musician. I’ve been playing guitar for almost 35 years, but only in the last few have I fully embraced myself as a musician and songwriter – and state this confidently and without apology! I think to truly unlock your own creativity you have to be honest about who you are. Otherwise, there is s mental block there that restricts you from getting in touch with your inner muse…

      There were times that I would have liked to have seriously learned to play something. Back in my early teen years, our mother demanded that each of us choose between piano lessons and tap dancing.  While I would have inwardly loved to tap, that was not something a 12 year old boy would do in my neighborhood, so I took piano.  I can still read sheet music and I can play a few tunes, just not as good as I probably could have (edit – we have a mezzanine grand, which constantly needs work…and a good friend who can really play who we invite over).  Also, back in the ‘great recession’ I took several adult classes at the local community college including Mountain dulcimer.  I still have it and on rare occasion get it out and try to pluck a tune or two.

      Hugs, ChloeC

      Awhile back I posted a similar question. So I love that this has come around again. I’m a musician of 45 years Back in the day I was a full time pro for about 8 years. I play bass and guitar as well as sing and still perform out with my group. (I have never shared Dawn with anybody) My thought / question was would any other musician want to get together and jam while dressed. If things went well perhaps form a group specifically to perform at Conventions for CDer’s or transgender events? I live west of Chicago and believe there may be several clubs and venues that would cater to this. I haven’t been to any conferences yet but for those who have… would live music be welcomed? Are there any members here that would like to even meet and try this?
      I’m thinking the least that would come out of this would be friendship, liberation, a safe place to be open with like minds. (Even if you didn’t want to play out to the public) We could still have our own get together. (Band gear isn’t a problem as I have most of it.)

      Please let me know your thoughts.

      Thank you.
      Dawn

      I’m a musician and have been all of my life. Not that I’m a professional, I’m not, but I play a variety of instruments (guitar, bass, brass, etc.), have played in a few bands, and I love all genres of music.

      I’ve often wondered if the percentage of crossdressers is higher among musicians than among the general population? That would be interesting to know, if maybe the creative gene is manifested in musicians in both a musical and a crossdressing way?

      Anyway, yes, being a musician is wonderful and I’m glad that music is such a large part of my life!

      I wouldn’t call myself a musician but I do play guitar. I have a cheap n cheerful telecaster and a 6 string acoustic.

      I love playing dressed. It’s fun to combine two of my hobbies!!

      Broken down old rock rhythm guitarist this end. Cant play lead, my fingers are too short. Cant stretch them out far enough. I own 3 very nice guitars, 2 Australian Matons and a Fender “Strat”.aka Stratocaster

      “You aint an old rocker unless you own a Strat”> Just play for my own enjoyment, never anything like pro.

      Always wanted to team up with another CD guitarist play a duo.

      We would be the “Neverbe Sisters”(gender opposite of the Everley Bros… Geddit!!!)

      I love this post! In my youth, I played several instruments long enough to learn the basics, but never went beyond that beginner level, so I am not a musician. I am a far better audience. I go out to hear live original music several times each week, and have been doing that for decades, so I am very well connected in New York City’s music circuit. My vast network of friends and acquaintances is comprised mostly of musicians in bands. I sometimes wonder if any of these musicians are closet crossdressers like me.

      Yes! My Daddy taught me how to play a German Hohner button accordion, and my Grandma gave me a beautiful red Mother of Pearl one. I’ve been playing it for years. My Daddy has a black one, and sometimes we play them together. I can also play my antique pump organ, and a didgeridoo.

        Oh I love those antique pump organs, and has considered buying one. Neat instruments and I once did an impromptu performance at a museum on one. The tour person asked if someone could play piano, when I answered yes, then offered a short stint playing it!

        It was tough getting my head around pumping and playing, so a friend did the pumping whilst I played.

          I love antique pump organs too. ♥️

          If I were you, I would definitely buy one. My Mommy and Daddy bought one in an antique store years ago complete with the top, and it’s beautiful golden oak. I can only play a few songs on it, but I love how when you play it while pumping the pedals, you’re also exercising at the same time! So I know what you mean, Amy. They’re so fun to play! 😃

      I am somewhat of a musical artist myself. I don’t play but I do write (lyrics, not musical notes) and I do sing (I’ve been told I have a good singing voice too). Sadly I haven’t really had a chance to get my music out there though.

      I play 6 string acoustic guitar as well as I feel I need to, but would never be able to do so in public.  I do it to relax and let the daily stress melt off.  I am slowly (read as VERY slowly) learning 12 string.  I can read music from playing coronet in school, and just love how simple guitar tab is.  It is just my natural low talent that keeps me out of the studio, LOL

      Now, give me a nice stereo and I can play anything from ABBA to ZZ Top, and make it sound goooood.

      Love this post! I have been involved with music to some extent as longer than I have dressed. My grandmother started teaching me piano around 6 yrs old, and my grandfather started teaching me violin just a few years later, when I was old enough to hold a full size violin. I played classical violin in a youth orchestra during my teens, concurrent with playing flute in the high school band. Though I studied classical violin for a time, I never took piano lessons beyond what my grandmother taught me.

      Due to pressures of work, I didn’t play much for some years, and an injury to my left wrist made it very painful to play violin much. So I went back to piano.

      Then I started taking lessons, and play at a grade 9 to 10 level, though I’ve never gone through been tested for which RCM level I’m at. I play Romantic classical, which is late 19th and early 20th century, and some Jazz, the odd pop song, plus some of my own compositions.

      Have practiced at home as Amy, but never been out and performed en femme. That would be neat, but I’m a nervous performer at the best of times, and that would up that factor by quite a bit, I think.

      I still have my grandmother’s piano, an upright which dates from 1911, and had restored a few years ago for my daughter, who has it now.  I play on a baby grand these days.

      Amy

        Do the grades go up to 10 these days?

        When I was 15, 8 was the highest.

        I have grade 8 piano, voice and theory and definitely would have continued if there was anywhere to go- hence the degree.

        I’ll look it up – could do with honing my skills

        Love Laura

      My most recent music project was about 3 years ago. I was guitarist in a Black Sabbath tribute band. And a Who tribute band at the same time!

      I’ve done so many musical things since age 6, it’d take hours to write this post!

      Other instruments: Piano, keyboards (electronic keyboards are very different to play, and I have also played organs, like church organs, which are awesome beasts), violin, recorder and bass.

      I had most affinity with bass – I just play naturally whatever feels good, without such nonsense as theory getting in the way.

      I have a degree in music, so my theoretical knowledge is quite good, but I’ve always taken the attitude that you learn theory to understand how it works, you do composition assignments to prove it, and practical examinations to demonstrate that yes, you know the theory, but you also get how the whole musical thing works.

      Playing comes from the heart, but with no study, it’s gibberish. Music is a language – a means of communication.

      It’s fundamentally sound organised in time, so maybe gibberish isn’t the right word.

      An untrained player will communicate with the equivalence of a young child. The less study that is pit into music, the harder it is for others to interpret, yet it may still sound beautiful, or communicate something.

      A highly skilled player is just as capable of communicating gibberish – the overload of techniques can overwhelm the average listener, who may not have progressed past Coldplay.

      Doh!

      That always happens when I start writing about music – I don’t want to stop!

      Love Laura

        Years ago I saw Paz Lecanchin when she was in Entrance and she was wearing loose- fitting long-sleeve dresses like that with her legs all bare and uncovered. She would stand there on top her her massive stack barefoot with her long black hair in her face and all I could think was “that must be the best feeling.” If I had even a little bit more money then I would have gotten myself a dress like that and probably wear it every day.

      Nice to see this posted. I play alto sax, but I can’t honestly call myself a musician. Severe overbite prevents me from a proper embouchure, and the same problem made playing trumpet impossible. Still, I enjoy what I do, and I play pop and 20’s jazz.

      Hi Zoe,

      I play the drums for my own entertainment and I find it relaxing doing drum covers for my favourite tracks.  I haven’t drummed dressed, maybe I should give it a go on Green Day’s King for a Day.
