 many popular musical instruments to choose from, which one should parents and students choose? In the article below, we outline some of the most popular musical instruments for students. We also outline the virtues and important factors to consider when choosing between them.

What do children learn from musical instruments?

There are plenty of benefits students earn from taking up a musical instrument. Here are five of the most important that our researches at Vanco found.

  • Improves Interpersonal SkillsThese “soft skills” are essential for childhood and even more important for adulthood. Because students in a music program need to work with each other as a team to perform their work, they learn teamwork and other key interpersonal skills.
  • MemorizationFor students to be successful in their coursework, they need to be able to collect and internalize large amounts of new information. When students learn a musical instrument, they learn an entire language of notes. This learning process takes muscle and practice, which music programs help to build. As students practice musical instruments, their brain power increases, helping them with their coursework.
  • Promotes CreativityFor students to become successful adults, they need to think outside the box to solve complicated problems and innovate. By learning a musical instrument, students can find an outlet to express themselves creatively.

  • Boosts Self-EsteemFacing criticism is tough for anyone, but for students it can be even harder. By learning a musical instrument, students learn about constructive criticism and are challenged to improve in a positive way. This not only helps them to grow character and build self-worth, but helps students grow resiliency against non-constructive criticism and bullies.
  • Improves Motor SkillsBy improving coordination and dexterity, musical instruments develop motor skills within students.

  • FluteFlute
    A quiet and highly portable instrument, it is very easy to learn, according to the Ambient Mixer blog, and doesn’t cost too much money. It can also be used as a stepping stone to other instruments. Though primarily a classical instrument, it has adapted to other genres and was a foundational instrument for the 1970s rock group Jethro Tull.
  • Many students start their musical training with the recorder in elementary school music class, and the step up to the clarinet is natural. It is a woodwind and, like the flute, is small, lightweight and versatile. The clarinet is a staple of classical and jazz orchestras.
  • Luckily, cellos for younger students aren’t horribly huge, but they get pretty heavy as the student gets older. It is a key string instrument, along with the violin and viola, and is used mostly in symphony orchestra and chamber quartets. It can accompany almost any instrument, and there are some solos in the repertoire.
  • TrumpetTrumpet
    The king of the brass instruments is used in almost every genre. An integral part of symphony orchestra brass sections, the trumpet is also crucial to jazz, R&B and some rock ensembles. Available in a variety of sizes, it helps enhance motor skills and, as a Normans Musical Instruments blog states, can even exercise abdominal muscles.

  • VoiceVoice - Kid singing song with microphone
    Yes, the mellifluous tones of the singing voice is an instrument – and perhaps the most crucial instrument in choir, pop, rock, R&B, country and many forms of jazz. A Cappella and barber shop quartets wouldn’t exist without it.
