Learning how to play musical instruments is a wonderful skill, this is one of the many reasons that so many parents enroll their kids in music lessons at such a young age.
But, even if you haven’t learned how to play any musical instruments growing up, it’s never too late to acquire a new skill – and definitely not too late to pick up a musical instrument and learn to play it by heart.
While it’s true that playing some musical instruments are better taught during childhood, adults can still learn to play any musical instrument they may want to play, as long as they put their hearts and mind into it.
The thing is, there is really no one instrument that would be easiest to play for all. The title ‘easiest musical instrument to play’ will greatly depend on your interests and your preference. While trying to play various musical instruments, you will feel that there’s one instrument that you’ll feel more at ease playing than others.
That being said, if you’re still on the phase of deciding which musical instrument would be the easiest one for you to handle, you can choose from some of the musical instruments usually played by beginners:
Flute – Flute can vary depending on the materials used to make it. Silver flutes will have a brighter tune than wooden flutes, but any variety will be good for you to start with. Flutes can be easy to handle and easy to learn, using just your fingers to move through the keys.
Keyboards or Piano – Keyboards and piano are also popular musical instruments played by beginners, including children. These musical instruments can be an excellent stepping stone in learning the level of concentration and coordination needed in playing any instrument. And, since playing piano or keyboards usually require reading notes in front of you, you’ll get used to reading notes early on. Piano and keyboards are also multifaceted instruments and could be great stress relievers for both the person playing it and the listener.
Harmonica – Aside from being easy to play, the harmonica is perhaps one of the most (if not THE most) portable musical instruments to play. Because of this, you can readily enhance your skills playing it practically anywhere! In playing harmonicas, it’s also very hard to get the tunes wrong, so it can help build confidence along with skills. There are various types of harmonicas you can purchase to start practicing, and certain types are easier to play than others. My friend from Silvercrest Custom Homes Vancouver is a self taught, yet amazing harmonica player.
