Well, beyond a little recorder in elementary school like everyone else, I started with the trumpet in 6th grade. I played it for six years straight, but dropped it when I graduated from high school. Probably…well, easily, the most significant ensemble I played it in was my high school marching band. We were... well very much still are (but I'm not in it anymore, obviously!) one of the top competing national marching bands, so that was a big thing. About tenth grade, I had taken more interest in playing woodwind instruments. I started with the clarinet, but it didn't go too well for me - it really hurt my mouth. About midway through my senior year (just over nine years ago now), I finally got my bassoon and started learning it, and I have played it ever since. In college band, symphony orchestra, community orchestra, etc.
I'm still not an one-instrument person, though! I am pretty much in love with all woodwinds that aren't flute/piccolo, soprano clarinet (it hurt my mouth, as I said), and soprano saxophone. Right now I'm taking lessons for the oboe, and hope to get to play it in some kind of ensemble soon… Would love to get to play melodies again. Lol.
My music tastes are even more complicated than that... sigh You could say I grew up mostly to music from the 70s and 80s, some 60s, some 90s, because that's what my family listened to (the 90s just being the music of the time). The modern pop/rock that struck out to me the most was the early to mid 00s, though. After that I stopped really liking any of the modern radio music coming out, I'm afraid. I discovered classical, and switched back to the music of mostly 70s/80s for my radio listening.
Somewhere down the line the 80s started rubbing me in the wrong way... the synths and overall instrumentation, vocal styles, everything just paled in comparison to the 70s and eventually 60s music I came to love. Nowadays I mostly listen to music from the 60s/70s... Pretty much everything: Soul/R&B, Plain ol' Classic Rock, Soft Rock, Progressive/Psychedellic Rock, Folk/Folk Rock (especially British), etc. I do not completely shun the 80s, or today's music. I try to keep an open mind. I keep some punk in my library, but it's still hard for me to get into much of today's music, sadly. Instrumentation is the most important aspect for me, and the 60s/70s hit that sweet spot for me... Beyond that, not so much.
Classically, I really started listening ten years ago, and wasn't raised to it as much. I started with Baroque and Classic. Eventually fell in love with Impressionistic, as well. More recently, I took an interest in Early Music. It started with Renaissance Polyphonic choral music like Thomas Tallis, but in the last couple of years I've come to really appreciate the instrumental music as well. (it took me a little while to get used to the extremely buzzy nature of early double reeds, but I love them now!)
