Playing an instrument gives musicians many benefits from improved memory, reduced stress, and time management skills. If you or your child wants to learn how to play an instrument, congratulations! The next step is finding the right instrument.
Finding the best instrument can be filled with trial and error but it is essential that you don’t give up. At Music Go Round St. Louis, here are our suggestions for the best musical instruments for beginners:
Guitars are a wonderful instrument that complement other instruments beautifully. The acoustic guitar is a great place to start learning, as they come in a wide array of sizes and styles to meet the needs of its player.
Piano Or Keyboard
Many adults probably remember taking piano lessons as a child at the behest of their parents. Even if you didn’t pick it up then, you can now! Piano is a versatile instrument that can be traditionally played on a traditional stand-up, or on an electric keyboard.
Electric keyboards are a great alternative to a traditional piano in that they are budget friendly, don’t take up much space, and are programmed with rhythms and training programs to practice to.
Drums are one of the easiest instruments to start learning. Simple and versatile, drums have been the backbone of music since time immemorial. With their ability to produce a rich sound, drums are a great way to learn rhythm and tempo. This instrument is physically demanding but with plenty of practice and perseverance, you’ll be playing along with any genre of music you choose!
Wait, isn’t a recorder the instrument that kids play in music class? Yes! But it’s also a great place for older children and even adults to start when learning woodwinds. The recorder teaches essential skills like finger placement, breath control, and reading music. Once you get used to a recorder, you can challenge yourself with more complex woodwinds like a flute or clarinet.
