Which Instrument Should I Choose?

Music for Bedford Borough and the Bedford Music Co-operative work together to offer children and young people instrumental lessons (the Co-op will teach adults too). Click here to view our 'Learn to Play' information leaflet.

 

Most children would have an idea which instrument they would like to learn and in the first instance it’s probably best to go with that. They may have had experience of playing a violin or flute at school and want to carry on.

 

However, sometimes they want to play but don’t know which instrument to choose. We run ‘Learn to Play’ groups at our Saturday Morning Music Centre where there is a great selection of instruments to choose from.  Please click the link for further details about our Saturday Morning Music Centre.

 

You’d need to consider practicalities such as the size of the learner and whether your car would accommodate a double-bass or tuba! Also, encourage your child to think about what they’d like to do with their music-making. This could help them make the right choice for them.

 

At the end of the day it doesn’t matter if they make a choice and then further down the road wish to swap instruments. The learning would not have been wasted.
