So what are the best instruments for children to learn first? Do you have children and now you are thinking of their first instruments? Have you ever played any musical instruments? Insider Monkey recently published an article in which we can find lots of interesting facts about his topic.
As for me I played the bassoon when I was younger, and I was regarded to be talented. The only problem was that I started it too late. Nowadays if somebody is gifted in music he, she must begin learning it at a very young age, about at the age of five. But what kind of musical instrument should you choose for your children? If I needed to answer I would say the easier the better. Easy – means now that it’s not heavy. We should forget that a very young kid can’t lift too large instruments. On the other hand it’ better not to push the kid towards playing instruments, it should be the child’s own choice. What we are forced to do, we don’t like it. The other question is the price of an instrument. It is also very important aspect.
In order to get the right answer, Insider Monkey has consulted sites like Music Time Academy, PBS, Quora, and Music Australia. The instruments that were most recommended in terms of being easy to learn by kids and as a first instrument entered on Insider Monkey’s list. We have picked two instruments from their list: guitar, and flute. Those who love strings would say this is the best instrument that ever has been invented. They sound great, easy to start with, but we must not forget, it is just the beginning. Playing well is not easy!The guitar doesn’t require you to follow the patterns, notes and established guidelines all the time. Going out of the box is even encouraged. Flute is on of my favorites as I love wood wind instruments. It is good if a child of 6/7 years old begins it, as necessary lung capacity is needed for this instrument. As for me I think flute is the optimal instrument: not heavy, inexpensive and develops lung capacity like swimming.
