In the Phineas and Ferb season 1 episode “Mom's birthday”, we find that Candace plays several musical instruments: bongos, bugle, bassoon, bagpipe, bass, banjo, balalaika. (She also considered taking blender lessons in “Flop starz”.)


But I don't recall Candace playing any musical instrument in later episodes. She has lots of opportunities, because the show is full of music, and the other main characters do play instruments. Despite that, it seems like Candace always just sings. Am I missing something? Is there any other episode where Candace plays a musical instrument? Or did she give that up completely when her instruments disappeared?

Candace uses an alien's head to play some notes.

She later remarks that "every part of their body is a musical instrument," so I say it counts.

We see a scrapbook recreation of her playing an instrument, though the lyrics suggest she isn't actually very good at it.

Although Candace doesn't play them, the instruments are mentioned again in season 4, in the episode “Great Balls of Water”.

Cadence: Predictable? Ordinary? I mean, come on! I play 20 instruments! Yeah, that all start with the letter "B", as in boring.
