  1. I think guitar is the best all around instrument. Learning anything is a good starting point though, as I started on guitar when i was 30, before i tried to drums. If you know little about rhythm already helped you progress faster on the guitar.

  2. A music instrument rental location just opened by my house. This has made want to start learning how to play. I didn’t realize a ukulele is easy to learn because it has four nylon strings instead of six. I’ll be sure to remember this info moving forward.

  3. Well I don’t know what their talking about because the piano is actually one of the hardest instruments you can learn. I’ve been playing it for over 10 years and I don’t understand how people thing they can learn properly with out a teacher. And without a teacher you wouldn’t do scales or exams and not to motivated

    1. If a person is not motivated with out a teacher they will not be motivated with a teacher. There has to be a desire within a person to learn. No teacher can can make that desire happen. A teacher can encourage and point a student in the right way to learn.

  4. I don’t know if the piano is the easiest instrument to learn, in fact it is one of the hardest. For a while it’s ridiculously easy, but after seven years it makes you want to rip your hair out. Even after a full year it can get pretty aggravating.

    1. You need a good teacher that can communicate to you and needs to be enjoyable to the point of having really a lot of fun with it

  5. There is no easiest instrument, only instruments that are easier to start out on. To become good at any instrument, whether it be a basson to maracas, you will need to spend hundreds of hours of practice to become a good player in whatever instrument you play. It is difficult to learn an instrument but it’s always worth it in the end.

    1. The person who does the above has that desire and self-discipline (which most are almost void of these days) to continue on. Ones I have been familiar with had to be told to step away from the instrument for a while. They became totally engulfed with their (instruments). But in the end they were delighted!!

  6. Well I started out on the piano when I was 5 ( I am a teen now) and I am still playing. Last summer I taught myself to play the harmonica. I am also learning the french horn. The harmonica was defiantly the easiest because I learned it in a day and I did not need to be taught but the piano gave me a really good theory of music and I am now top of my class for my french horn. I can see everything that our teacher is talking about like c to d is a hole step d to e is a hole step and d to f is a half step etc… If I had started out with the horn I would have no idea why it went hole hole half so that gave me a good understanding. I want to learn the cello next and so my past musical experiences will make it much easier to learn.

    1. You learned harmonica in a day? You probably mean simple, note by note melody. Harmonica is a pain to learn advance technique like overblow, overdraw, half tone bend and so one. Even tongue blocking ask loooot of practice to do it decently. Go listen Jean Jacques Milteau to listen a harmonica maestro. I play harmonica since 4 years, andmy god, still so much stuff to get right.
