Ok... I've been at the piano since 4 yrs old (dad was a pianist) and play guitar (15 years old then). I've studied music until high school at which time I decided Pre-Med (lost interest) then engineering school was the course for me. Although my 'bacon' is engineering/science career I still dabble in music with friends or the solo bit playing piano/guitar at restaurants, gatherings, etc. No money in doing so... just for my sense of enjoyment. My wife plays violin, daughter plays piano, son was principal chair trombonist in several full scale orchestras and also plays the piano. Anyone else sort of in these shoes and can relate?
