INSTRUMENTS FOR BEGINNERS
There is hardly a person who doesn’t like music. Due to numerous different genres, there is something for every taste. It is scientifically and psychologically proven that music is not just beautiful to listen to, but actually has a therapeutic power and acts on the human body in different ways. It affects blood pressure, heartbeat and muscle tension. It sometimes strikes negatively, sometimes positively on the mind.
Music can make a good mood, music can comfort, music can create a romantic mood, music can connect people. An interview on fluter.de gives a more detailed insight into the sensations and reactions of the body that arise from music.
At any age, music plays a big role: in babies who can’t even sit alone, you can see that they bounce with their whole body when they listen to music. Preschoolers love to sing and dance and at the latest at primary school age an attempt is made to promote a musical talent or at least basic knowledge is taught through music lessons. Many children start to learn the first musical instrument. But even in adulthood, this is still possible. But which instrument is particularly suitable for beginners? And which one is rather unsuitable?
Together with the piano, the keyboard is probably the most popular entry-level instrument in terms of keyboard instrument. Compared to the piano, however, the keyboard has one advantage above all: the price. Good beginner keyboards are available for as little as 150 euros, while a piano is much more expensive to purchase and must also be regularly serviced and tuned. So if you are not yet sure whether a keyboard instrument is really right for you and could possibly stop playing after a short time, the cheaper (and space-saving) version keyboard is better for you.
A less common and therefore rather underestimated musical instrument is the ukulele. Some people know her by Stefan Raab , others she became a household name thanks to Israel Kamakawiwo’ole and his posthumous hit “Somewhere over the Rainbow” – by which he proved that wonderful melodies can be played with the ukulele.
The Hawaiian instrument consists of four strings, while the otherwise popular beginner’s instrument in the field of stringed guitar consists of six. And that makes learning the ukulele much easier. But it has other advantages:
- Cheap Acquisition – A ukulele is not expensive. A reasonable beginner model can be purchased from 20-30 euros.
- Easy Transport – Due to its size, the ukulele does not fit in every handbag, but still does not fall out of the frame and can be easily transported in larger bags. It also impresses with its low weight.
- Easy Switch To The Guitar – Of course, ukulele and guitar are only partially comparable, because two more strings are added to the guitar and the chord handles are different. Nevertheless, experienced ukulele players can learn to play the guitar relatively easily, as both the grip technique and the rhythm feel are identical.

SOME OTHER INSTRUMENTS YOU CAN TRY
As already torn, the piano is also suitable for beginners, but the purchase is quite expensive and the instrument in a rental house very noisy.
Both the acoustic and the electric guitar are suitable for beginners. Depending on the taste of the music, the preferred option can be chosen.
The flute is a not too difficult instrument to learn in its basics. However, on the one hand the fingers must be long enough or their wingspan wide enough to reach all flaps easily, on the other hand, the second incisors should be fully formed.
The saxophone is similar to the flute, here too the tooth development is important and also the height of the child.
It can be said that in the case of wind instruments in general, the most complete training of the part is a prerequisite for learning the instrument.
The drums are also suitable as a beginner’s instrument, but here too the body size plays an important role, since the individual elements can only be reached after a certain height. This is usually the case from about 8 or 9 years.
