The best way to utilise the spare time is by learning something new

Music and the playing of instruments are something that piques the interest of people across age groups. But as easy as singing comes to people, it doesn’t has to be the perfect pitch, the playing of musical instruments gets a tad bit difficult. However, the good news is that there is a plethora of musical instruments which does not require one to be an expert to play. There are a series of musical instruments that are easy to learn and play. Playing a musical instrument is also a recreational activity that helps calm the mind and the body. Here is a list of a few easy-to-learn and play instruments.

Yuho with Ukulele

Unlike the six strings in guitar, the ukulele has four nylon strings which are not difficult to play. Playing the four chords is easy and simple to pick up any song. With the four strings, it is easy to pick rhythm and chords. And before you know it you will be playing your favourite song in just a few weeks. This small instrument may seem like a flop at the beginning but with time it will give out the best results. Also, the interesting part about playing ukulele is that one can perform any genre, right from blues to classics. Learning the basics of a ukulele is simple pressing down the strings. The four types of chords on the ukulele are the soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. Each chord has its unique character.

Bang, bang with Banjo

An instrument from the family of chords and strings, Banjo is another easiest instrument to learn to play. A bit similar to a guitar with the body at the end in the shape of a circle, Banjo has more strings on it than a ukulele. For beginners, playing along with the chords on the banjo is as easy as wanting to learn the ukulele. The common type of banjo for beginners is the five-stringer. This number of strings is the right number between a ukulele and a guitar, making it easier and more fun to play.


Also known as the French harp or mouth organ, the harmonica is a small instrument that you can roam around with just in your pocket. Played with the power of one’s lungs and rhythm, it is a free reed wind instrument. The use of harmonica has specifically been in the musical genres of blues, American folk music, classical music, jazz, country, and rock. And you don’t need any classes to learn to play it, anyone can play it.

Other instruments to play are Glockenspiel, Recorder, Violin, Drums, Bongos, Piano, and Guitar.
