“Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart.”-Shinichi Suzuki, creator of the Suzuki method of music educator

How to Decide Which Musical Instrument to Play

One of the biggest obstacles that a budding musician,whether young or older,has to overcome is that of actually deciding which musical instrument to learn to play.

 Here are a few things to consider that will help you decide which musical instrument to play. 

1.Which instrument do you find yourself imagining playing? 

2.Which instrument do you like and enjoy the sound of?Why do you like that particular sound? 

3.Do you enjoy singing?Is that your instrument? 

4.Do you want to play an instrument that you can master to some extent quite easily,without spending hours and hours on practice? 

5.Are you prepared to spend money on a good quality instrument or are you limited in funds and need a less expensive option? 

6.Do you enjoy listening to or watching performances on the instrument you would like to play?

7.Do you have the patience and self-discipline needed to master certain skills,sometimes over a long period of time?Or do you get frustrated easily when things become difficult? 

 Considering the above questions can greatly assist you in knowing how to decide which musical instrument to play.
