As an ex-English teacher I find most of my classical musical pleasure, outside listening, in reading about the personal lives of composers and following the dramatic interplay on TalkClassical. :)
I did not know you were an English teacher. How do you like Strunk and White's The Elements of Style? It is my favorite book on English. My Silviculture professor (forestry program) was an ex-English teacher and included that book in our required book list. He also docked me 10 points for misspelling the same word five times in a paper, 2 points off for each time.:D

Back on topic:

I must confess to half heartedly attempting several instruments in my younger days, including coronet (wanted trumpet but rental store was out of them), inspired by Herb Alpert, harmonica inspired by Alvin and the Chipmunks, and guitar inspired by wanting to do sing-a-longs at Church. Didn't get very far with any of these instruments. Main problem is I did not have the drive to really attack it with the level of determination needed.
