It’s been said that “music soothes the soul.” For that reason, giving the gift of a musical instrument can open doors of creativity and inspiration not even previously considered.

When shopping for a musical instrument as a Christmas gift, it’s important to know the fine nuances of the instrument and the person who will be playing or learning to play the instrument. For example, any wind instrument might be a nice present, but if the receiver has asthma, it might not make such a good present.

Did you know it’s considered easier for a child to learn a musical instrument than an adult? Children under 6 years old are best suited to learn an instrument, while an adult may take up to five times longer.

As with learning anything new, it’s important to anticipate the learning curve for your friend or loved one. For example, when considering an electronic keyboard or piano, consider the length of the person’s fingers. Longer fingers would provide more dexterity and nimbleness.
