You're probably tired of spending the Quarantine lockdown shifting between the living room couch, bed and kitchen for the past few weeks. Most of it has involved working at your laptop or watching TV so your mind is definitely exhausted of the screens you're keeping on switching between. How about spending your time more productively then? We aren't only referring to cooking, cleaning and organising here. Picking up a musical instrument could be the best thing you could do for yourself during the lockdown.
Learning a musical instrument boosts cognitive abilities greatly and helps to productively spend the time at home. It is also a skill that you will carry with you for the rest of your life, long after the lockdown is lifted. And let's not forget how it will make you the star of your next party.
When at home, make the most of your time to learn these musical instruments which are the easiest to pick up.
The bass guitar has only 4 strings and music to play it with is freely available.
The tiny instrument is portable to carry around with strings that are also more comfortable to strum.
It is an ideal choice for a beginner without a background in music as it only requires different sounds from the mouth to produce music.
This woodwind instrument is a great choice to start with as its finger work doesn't require professional levels of co-ordination.
