Many people are eager to learn a musical instrument, but there’s a question that stops them from doing so. And that is the question of which instrument should I play?
Everybody has some favorite songs. But mostly, it’s not the matter of which instrument is playing that song, it's just the melody or harmony or even lyrics that attracts you. So you prefer to learn an easy instrument just to be able to play your favorite songs.
There are many aspects that you should consider before starting a new instrument:
How much free time do you have?
How much is your budget to buy an instrument?
What kind of music do you like?
Do you prefer instrumental or vocal music?
Do you want to play an instrument as a hobby or as a serious activity?
How old are you?
How often do you travel?
How much of music theory do you know right now?
The list can be even longer than this. But the point is, if you are not one of those people who have always dreamed of playing a specific instrument, then you have to consider a lot of things before buying your instrument.
First of all, will you have the time to go to music classes and practice every day or not? You should not just count on the online courses if it’s your first time learning an instrument.
After that you should consider your budget, some instruments are not cheap and can cause you to spend a lot of your savings to purchase them. And if you don’t continue playing that instrument for any reason, that’s just a lot of money going out of your pocket.
The kind of music you listen to the most has a direct effect on what kind of musical instruments you like more. Yes, yes, almost everybody believes that they listen to every kind of music, and they don’t have a favorite genre. That is the biggest lie humanity has come up with yet. You have a favorite genre or style of music, you just don’t know what it is.
You must always consider your seriousness toward learning a musical instrument. If you just want to learn it because it looks cool or it helps you get laid more, you should consider some instruments gone out of your choices. But if you want to learn an instrument because you really want to and you have always wanted to do it, then your circle of choices will get bigger. And also don’t forget about your age too.
