Many people don’t get to choose which musical instrument to learn. Their parents choose while they’re still kids, and that’s it—no going back. But what if you could pick the ideal instrument for you?
This infographic is written tongue-in-cheek. For example, it recommends a comb and tissue paper as the right choice for those with “not an iota” of musical ability, and a saxophone for those aching to be in an 80s cover band.
It’s true, though, musical instruments have personalities of their own. That’s why you want to make sure you vibe well with your chosen instrument before you commit time and money to it. Sure, taking music lessons can teach you a lot of valuable skills, but you’ll have to buy an instrument, pay for lessons, and practice for hours before you see any results—so you may as well enjoy it.
Equipped with this infographic, you’ll have no trouble making an informed choice and laughing while thinking about your decision. Younger readers are steered towards violins and recorders, while the infographic points adults to the more niche harps and french horns. This humorous advice gets you thinking about which musical instruments fit in your future.
