 “I would want to play the electric guitar because I think that it’s more stereotypical for men to play it and that women don’t have as many opportunities. Also, I love the sound of the instrument.”

 “I think I want to play the piano, only because there are lots of public pianos and other places I can practice so I don’t have to buy my own.”
