When you are deciding what instruments to buy for your child, you are facing a very large dilemma. You want to make sure they get instruments that will nurture their creative side, but you don't want to get them something that is going to be so complicated that they quickly lose an interest in playing it. As a result, you are walking a thin line between finding the perfect used instrument that inspires them creatively, and a used instrument that frustrates them immensely.
What instrument should you choose then? Well, here are five suggestions to help make your young musical prodigy into a musical legend.
The guitar is by no means an easy instrument to play but it is an instrument that improvement can easily be measured on. From simple chords to Stairway to Heaven, you will be able to help your child gain confidence as they slowly learn the chords of the guitar and begin taking on more complicated songs. It is a universal instrument and one of the most popular in the world.
If you can handle the noise, this is a great musical instrument for your child. They probably love to hit things with sticks, so this fits right in and once they master making a beat, they will become excellent drummers who will be highly sought after in any band. Plus, used drum kits do not usually cost that much to buy.
This is the bare bones instrument, that coincidently, was made of bone at one time in our history. It is very easy to learn how to play and they can be bought for a very simple price. You should jump at the chance to turn your child into the next Pied Piper with a flute.
If you look at most of the world's great rock musicians, they all started out on the piano. That includes Ozzy Osbourne, Paul McCartney and Chris Martin. Once you master the piano, you can master other types of instruments. It is the standard for every child who wants to learn how to play music, and it can launch your child on a new path of musical creativity.
Like the guitar, it is not the easiest instrument to learn but your progress can be charted pretty easily and once your child learns how to play it, their confidence will go through the roof because only a few people can play the violin well. It is a bit more expensive than other instruments, but if you buy a used one, you should be okay in terms of price.
These are just a few of the instruments you can get your children playing to help them nurture their musical gift and gain self confidence, but they are by no means the only one. It is best to look for the instrument your child will like the most by trying as many as you can. Music is an important part of development, and finding the right instrument for the right child can make all the difference in the world.
