Choosing an Instrument
One of the biggest decisions your child (with your help) will need to make is "Which instrument should I learn to play?"
In our experience, this decision is often made due to circumstance, rather than informed choice. Factors such as price, parental preferences or taste and other non-musical factors often come into play. Sometimes this works out fine but often it doesn't.
Luckily, we live in the age of Youtube and with a click of your mouse, your child could be listening to and watching the world's finest intrumentalists on any instrument you can think of.
We have made it even easier for you - below is a collection of videos we have chosen. We recommend you sit down with your child and go through them one by one, choosing and listening to clips of the different instruments.
Note which instrument clips your child identifies with, likes or is otherwise enthusiastic about and you are good to go.
