I play Eb horn (concert mellophone) for fun. I play tuba/sousaphone once in a blue moon, and I play euphonium every week in a community band. I can play piano, but nowhere near proficiently.

Not anymore.

In high school, I took up bari sax (and harmonica, alto recorder, & jaw harp. Plus piano lessons as a child).
In college, I realized I still wasn't good enough at trombone, and I refocused all my practice time towards that. My philosophy hasn't changed much since then.

It's a lot more useful to be known as a pretty good trombone player than an almost-competent bari sax player. Less frustrating to my own ears, too.

Euphonium and all of the saxes. Though I probably won't be playing too much sax after I go off to college.

Trombone, tuba, and recorder.  I mainly play tenor recorder since I tend to overblow my sopranino, soprano, and alto.

I took a couple of lessons on viola, but had to stop when my teacher kicked me out for missing a lesson due to a business trip (I notified her in advance and offered to pay for the lesson).

I think the OP thinks Baritone and Euphonium are the same, since he listed Baritone and not Euphonium, we'll have to edumacate him!!

My bad. Didn't come across my mind when I was thinking instruments but it is indeed a beautiful form of music.
