Easiest Music Forms to Master

It seems like only a select few will have the necessary skills to one day perfect a particular instrument. However, why can’t that be you? The area where so many fail when it comes to mastering a musical instrument is patience. When you begin the grueling process of harnessing your skills, you must understand that it is going to take some time. You can’t expect results within hours, days, weeks, or even months. Oftentimes, it can take years to perfect the art of music. This is what, most likely, will scare people away as they are not willing to sacrifice that much of their time for something that will, in all likelihood, end up being a hobby. But, with all this being said, there are instruments that are easier to play than others. For those of you who would like to start out small, and then work your way to higher standards, you should consider mastering the following.

Ukulele

Spoiler alert, you are not going to find a guitar entry on this list. Maybe if the hardest instruments to learn were documented, but not for the simplest. A good alternative to it, though, is a Ukulele. As opposed to the complications of a guitar, this instrument only has four strings and is a lot lighter. Although you may think the only aspect a Ukulele is associated with is Hawaiian music, a lot of pop music is derived from this instrument. Just know, though, that it does not possess the depth of a guitar.

What this means is that you will be limited to the type of music you can create. But, the entire point is that it is a great starter instrument for any music enthusiasts. Plus, this can lay the groundwork if you ever wanted to learn how to master a guitar. Although, it is still a big leap to go from a Ukulele to a guitar.

Singing

To be honest, this could be a controversial entry on this list. Many of you may argue the point that people are either born with a great voice or not. That it is not something that you can develop over time, and only those skilled enough can properly perform it. Do not believe anyone who tells you that asinine statement, but it will take the time to develop the skill. But, does that mean that it is difficult? Not necessarily, but you must find the right method in doing so. A method that properly teaches you how your voice operates and adequate exercises to develop your capabilities is the one to go with. For each person, this can be different so be sure to check out online methods.

If this becomes a serious passion of yours, then you will eventually want to consider investing in a microphone. Even though you may not want to do so, the best way to hone your skills is to listen to the playback of your singing. The best way to do this is to sing into a microphone. For anyone who is a little “green” in this area, be aware that there are several different versions that you can go with.

Bongo Drums

Much like guitars, do not expect drums to make their way on this list. However, what about bongo drums? Unfortunately, they may not offer enough depth for most people and may end up being too dull for most of you. They are perfect, though, for anyone who loves salsa and African music. For rock and metal enthusiasts, these are not a very good alternative to standard drums. Nope, these bad boys just give you a way to let loose while creating soothing music to listen to.

Do not think for one moment, however, that you can’t get creative with bongo drums. As you will find out if you invest your time with them, there are many different rhythm patterns that can be obtained. Surprisingly, you can get very creative and create several different sounds.

Piano

Possibly, another highly controversial choice for this list. However, think about it for a second. At first glance, you would think that learning how to perfect a piano is extremely difficult. While this author will not go as far as to say that it is simple, it is not as hard as you might think. This notion is highly contributed to the fact that you must master both hands at once. Yes, this can take a while to become accustomed to. But, everything you need to learn is laid right out in front of you.

In other words, when you make a mistake you know why you did; as you just hit the wrong note. This way, you are always understanding of what your issue is and you can properly fix it. Honestly, it just takes the time to master this music form. However, something that is time-consuming does not immediately qualify it for being challenging. Nobody said that learning something diverse could be achieved quickly, just remain patient with it and you could become a piano aficionado.

Harmonica

Yeah, you probably knew this one would make the cut. If you truly believe you have zero capabilities and skills when it comes to music, then this should be your weapon of choosing. After all, it is almost impossible to perform poorly on a harmonica. This is because every single note on them is “in key”. Plus, due to their small size, they are very portable and can be practiced anywhere. But, if they are so easy to play then why do they need to be practiced.

Although it is true that it is hard to rupture ear drums with ear-screeching music, there is a fine line between the skilled and unskilled. More specifically, when it comes to playing it professionally. Basic songs can be learned by practically anyone, but there is also a lot of potential with a harmonica. If you practice long enough and are patient enough you can make this a truly special art form.

The thought of learning a new instrument can oftentimes strike fear into people’s eyes. However, as you now know, there are variants that can be mastered by average Joes. It just takes discipline and a huge level of patience. If you can promise yourself that you are dedicated to having both of those qualities, then the sky is the limit for you. Even practicing one hour a day can do wonders, and before too long you will have developed a brand-new skill to show off to all your friends.
