    Question Skaters and musical instruments?

    I read in Davis & White's bio that he plays the violin. What other skaters also play instruments?

    Bebe Liang is pretty good on the piano. But I read recently that she had to cut back on serious study and recitals because of her figure skating schedule, and now she mainly just plays at church.

    I believe Mira Leung is an accomplished pianist as well.
    Someone correct me if I'm wrong please.

    I've seen a picture of Gwendal Peizerat at a piano, though I don't know if he really plays.

    I've seen numerous fluff pieces that show Ben Agosto messing around with an electric guitar. Sasha Cohen's bio indicates that she and her sister used to duet on violin on piano respectively, but she quickly discovered she had more of an aptitude for skating. Similar story with the Hughes sisters.

    As an aside, I should also mention that both on and off the ice, Elvis Stojko and Josef Sabovcik are extremely accomplished air-guitarists

    Didn't Ann Patrice McDonough play either the piano or violin, too?

    Yes, you are correct. Mira is a pianist. I would love to hear her play someday.

    I would love to watch her skate to herself playing. I think it'll bring out another side to Mira that we haven't seen yet. Unless, of course, it's Sydne Vogel (whom I love to watch skate--but she plays the tuba! No skating to tuba solos...but that's just me)

    I don't know if this counts, but I just remembered that brief clip they once showed of Gary Beacom blowing his harmonica in prison.
