Learning How To Play Musical Instruments

Dec 16, 2007
Some children could find learning how to play musical instruments very hard in some ways; but, in other ways very interesting. Musical instruments such as the clarinet or the piano are very different from each other in a physical sense, but both of these musical instruments have the same notes that people can learn to play. The clarinet has musical notes that range from the low E and to the high A. The B-flat clarinet is about 23.6 inches long, and has a range of more than three octaves.

The piano is a great musical instrument that consists of eighty-eight notes. The musical range for the musical notes on the piano will range from a low A as the lowest, and the highest note would be the C key. The piano is the easiest musical instrument to learn, and is often selected by beginners because this musical instruments follows the alphabet scale in note placement of A, B, C, D, E, F, G. they also will consist of sharps and flats. Once a beginner learns the fingering techniques for a piano, it is easier to learn how to play other musical instruments because the finger placement techniques will not seem to foreign.

Some musical instruments will need to be tuned in order for them to be played in concert. For a concert pitch, the piano key A above middle C would be tuned to a pitch that was precisely 440.000 Hz. This tuning principle is based on a standard keyboard that is equipped with 88 keys. This type of piano tuning should always be provided by a qualified technician because they have tuning instruments that will ensure that each note emitted from a piano will be just as it should be for concerts and other public performances.

Learning the notes as a young child is a challenge to those who do not practice as much as they need. Children as young as three years of age can learn to play a musical instrument if they have a teacher and are willing to practice every chance they get, but at least thirty to forty minutes a day. Practice lessons will consist of learning the scales, filling in various workbooks, and note-taking skills. There are different types of workbooks that will focus on techniques that your child can use when at home. There are usually five or more workbooks for every level involved in learning to play music and that means there will need to be a lot of practice time devoted to each.

The electronic keyboard can recreate the sounds of different instruments. The keyboard is also a popular version of the piano, but requires electricity. Some keyboards have hands on practice session programs and the key will light up on a song that is put on the keyboard. People that use the keyboard to learn how to play the piano without an instructor think this style of learning is great but the keyboard will not be able to tell a student if the notes are played correctly. It is a good idea for a child to remain in classes with a teacher in order to learn to play a musical instrument to the fullest extent possible.
