Letting the Music Speak

A musical instrument is any device or anything that is used for producing musical sounds. There are principle types of such instruments that are also classified by their method of producing the sounds. These are named; electronic, percussion, keyboard, stringed, and wind. It is also known as a universal component of human culture; history revealed that there is already the presence of musical instruments in the Paleolithic period and Neolithic period. Musical instruments vary from styles and shapes and even with different kinds of materials.


From Bones to Trombones

Even at the beginning of human culture, musical instruments already existed. It has always been paired with vocal songs. It was not certain when it was first discovered or invented. However, historians were led by a discovery of 37,000 years old animal bone-made flutes. Musical instruments are made for evident purposes: entertainment, dance, ritual, singing, and communal purposes. Back in the day, humans used clay drums and shell trumpets; some say that cooking pots are used as drums and hunting bows as musical bows. The evolution of musical instruments went from wooden to metal, hunting bow to electric guitar, and animal leg bones to woodwind instruments. When humans were able to combine hydraulic mechanisms and pipe organs, they were able to produce power instruments; when electric amplifiers were invented, it gave birth to the electronic instruments known today. Whatever may be our musical instruments' origin, the further advancement of the variety of instruments all over the world has always been dependent on the interplay of available materials and technology.


Choosing the right Musical Instrument

With all the varieties available in the market of musical instruments, the first thing that you should consider is what do you really want to play? Percussion? Keyboard? Woodwind? Electronic? Or stringed? Choosing one of these classifications narrows down on what musical instrument you should purchase. You should also always inspect the musical instrument that you are trying to purchase, make sure it has a good quality with no structural weakness.

1. Is it for me?

Play in accordance with your strengths. Would you still bother to buy a sousaphone with your back problems? Playing musical instruments should help you relieve the stress and serve as a displacement from your problems. Do not let it be another trouble for you. Also, make sure that you have enough room for your musical instrument/s.

2. Too big or too small?

Purchase an instrument that considers your size. It would be inappropriate to buy a child a violin that is way too big for him. Besides the fact that he wouldn't be able to carry it, he wouldn't also get the chance to play it. Start simple and small and work your way up in enhancing your playing skills.

3. Can I afford it?

You do not need a very expensive musical instrument if you are still a beginner. Start small-- baby steps. Always consider the fact if you can afford the instrument that you want to buy; it wouldn't hurt to think about the price first. It is impossible for every average-man not to talk about the price of a certain object. We always have the range from the cheapest to the most expensive. A low to the mid-range instrument is a starter; it is enough to give you the fresh start and comfort of playing the instrument. If you already mastered the instrument and you are proficient enough, maybe you can consider getting that high-end instrument. But if you really do not have the money to buy a new one, you could always rent an instrument.

4. Noise implications

Owning an instrument is a noisy affair. Consider the place where you are going to play your instrument. If you live in a neighborhood wherein the distance of the house is close enough to hear your musical instruments; you might want to take a more low-sound instrument, or you could just soundproof your house to avoid being an insensitive neighbor.

5. Second-guessing on a Second Hand

It is not always bad to get a second hand. Who can blame you for cutting financial corners? You just have to make sure that the second-hand musical instrument that you want to buy is working and in good condition. Try using some antibacterial hand wash or alcohol along with you when trying out a second-hand instrument.


Los Familias

There are numerous ways to classify musical instruments. The most common is the classification according to its orchestral instrument families by the European culture. These are the classifications of the orchestral instruments:

The Woodwind Family

Most of it is originally made from wood but some of it now is made out of metal. The sounds are produced by blowing and some are by vibrating a reed.

There are also double-reed instruments like oboes and bassoons wherein two thicknesses of reeds are being used.

1. Flutes

  • It is the smallest and highest-sounding instrument among the musical instruments.
  • It is small, easy to carry around especially when traveling when placed in a case.
  • Very inexpensive to rent.
  • This instrument is difficult to hold if you have small hands.
  • It is easily damaged especially when you dropped it due to the fact that it has small parts.
  • It is not difficult to know the basics of playing the flute.

2. Oboes

  • Oboe is a double-reed instrument. It has the same size as a flute or a clarinet when it is assembled.
  • Oboes are small and easy to carry around when traveling specially when placed in a case.
  • It is somewhat difficult to play at times.
  • Can be easily damaged when dropped; it also has small parts that make it fragile.
  • The instrument itself and its supplies are expensive.

3. Clarinets

  • Clarinets are single-reed instruments, it has a similar size to a flute and oboe when assembled.
  • Clarinets are also small and easy to carry around when traveling specially when placed in a case.
  • Very inexpensive to rent.
  • It is somewhat difficult to play at times.
  • Clarinets use reeds; continued expense.
  • Fragile because of the fact that it has small parts; be careful not to drop it.

4. Bassoons

  • Bassoons are made of wood, has many keys, long-piped, and doubled in half
  • 9-feet long
  • Bassoons also use double reed; it is fitted into a curved metal mouthpiece.

The Brass Family

A brass instrument is defined by its name; it is made of brass.

It can play louder than any other instrument in the orchestral instruments.

Brass instruments, like the woodwind instruments, are also played using the mouth. The only difference is that woodwind instruments are blown while brass instruments are played by vibrating your own lips by buzzing it against the mouthpiece of the instrument.

Pitch and sound are changeable by the way you buzz your lips and by pressing different valves.

1. Trumpets

  • Trumpets are small
  • Plays the highest pitch
  • It has a full length of 6 ½ feet long when fully stretched.

2. French Horn

  • Delivers a sound from very hard to very soft.
  • French Horns are used to play the melody, harmony, and rhythm in orchestras
  • Holding it with the bell curving downward and buzzing into the mouthpiece is the right way to play the french horn.
  • Played by pressing the three valves using your left hand and varying the type of sound you produce by the way your hand holds the bell.

3. Trombone

  • Uses slides to change pitch; unique among the brass instruments.
  • It is made of long thin brass pipes, standardly.
  • An "S" is formed by two U-shaped pipes linked at the opposite ends.
  • This instrument is played horizontally, buzzing into the mouthpiece.
  • The pitch it produces can vary from pushing or pulling the slide of it.
  • When stretched to its full length, it is about 9 feet long.

4. Tuba

  • A Tuba is a grandfather among the brass instruments
  • The largest and lowest brass instrument
  • It anchors the harmony with its deep and rich sound
  • 9 to 18 feet
  • The longer the tuba is, the deeper it sounds
  • Tubas are played by sitting down and placing it in your lap with the bell facing up
  • You can play the tuba by blowing and buzzing into a very large mouthpiece while your hand is pressing down the valves
  • It requires a lot of breath to play the tuba

The String Family

String instruments are usually made out of wood

It is called "string" instruments due to the fact that the strings make the sound; it may be made of nylon, steel, or gut.

Contrabass, cello, viola, and violin

1. Violin

  • Plays the higher-pitched sounds
  • The baby among the string family
  • Typically, its size is about 24 inches or 2 feet long with a slightly longer bow
  • Playing the violin is like playing the guitar but the only difference is that violins use bows

2. Viola

  • Slightly bigger than a violin
  • Violas produce rich and warmer sounds
  • Violas are played the same way as you play the violin

3. Cello

  • Cellos look like a larger violin but around 4 feet long
  • It has thicker strings compared to violins and violas
  • Warm low pitches to bright higher notes
  • Cellos are played by sitting down with the cellos placed between the knees, with the cello's neck placed on the left shoulder.
  • A cello is played in an almost similar manner to the violin and viola

4. Double Bass

  • The grandfather of the string family
  • 6 feet long
  • Has the longest strings among the string family; it generates very low notes.
  • It requires you to stand or sit on a tool when playing the double bass; it is so big.
  • Similar to the cello, it is played with its body standing on the ground, supported by a metal peg while its neck rests on your shoulder
  • It is played similarly to a cello

5. Harp

  • The most unique member
  • 6 feet, with its body shaped like a number 7
  • Composed of 47 strings with tunes matching with the white keys of a piano
  • Each string produces a different note; it comes in different colors to know which is which
  • Plucking the strings with fingertips and thumb is the proper way of playing the harp
  • At the bottom of the harp, attached are foot pedals

The Percussion Family
