Kids - 5 Musical Instruments easy to learn
Have you ever thought of introducing your child to a new Musical Instrument? or have they already expressed an interest?
Children are never too young to start learning to play a musical instrument. They can start learning from as early as the age of 7. These days, kids seem to spend so much time on computers, it would be nice if they could occupy themselves with something else.
There are many musical instruments to learn, but I will focus on 5 easy ones: It would be helpful to pay for lessons for them to start learning otherwise there are places they could learn online. I have included some online links.
A great starting point for learning music because it is easy to learn. The flute is cheap and easy to carry. Yamaha is a good model for a flute but it is advisable to shop around.

An instrument that inspires kids. This is most popular with boys but girls also play it. For learning, it is best to start with an acoustic or classical guitar. Fenda and Yamaha are good brands.
Violins have 4 strings, which makes it easier to learn than a guitar. It’s portable and easy for children to manage. It doesn’t need any microphones or attachments.
This is good for children who want to learn how to read music. For details of buying a pianot visit http://pianobuyer.com/. It gives an idea of Models, prices and features.
Alternatively, you could buy a small electric keyboard and let them learn by themselves. Keyboards have pre-recorded music in them. You could buy a basic book and teach them the basics.
It is best to start to learn from the age of 10. Although some kids are exceptional and could probably learn at a younger age. The Alto saxophone is advisable for beginners. Selmer Conn, Elkhart and Yamaha are good brands. Buying a second hand Saxophone is not really ideal as they are not cheap to service or repair.
In summary, make sure that your child wants to study this instrument – Look for a good teacher who is fun and stimulating. Someone who can mentor your child to achieve good results. It is important that your child enjoys the learning process too.
