Here is an advice for choosing the right band instrument for your child, made for a musician teacher that spent 29 years teaching instrumental music to elementary and middle school students. As you might expect, during that time I had many students who became quite good musicians, many more who did an average job, and some who struggled with the instrument from day one.
For those who struggled to learn their chosen instrument, there were a variety of reasons for the struggle. For most it was simply a matter of not practicing enough. But for some others the reason was that the child was not matched with an instrument that he or she could be successful on.
Learning by playing it’s one of the best ways to enhance cognitive development of kids. Not only with the musical instruments featured here but also with storytelling, specially bedtime stories. Btw, for nice and fun stories ask help of these funny hand puppets to deliver a visually rich array of stimulation, thus creating the opportunity for imaginative exploration involving stories and musical experiences using these finger puppets in the theatre; now imagine combining these hand puppets and telling stories while introducing this musical instruments.
This is a guide for parents to help them pick the proper instrument for their child.
here are some things to keep in mind when it comes to matching children and band instruments. Following are the instruments that are typically offered to beginning band students, with some remarks about the physical characteristics that usually indicate the potential for success on each.
Another option to induce the kids in the music in a way striking is with an electric big toy drum set.(#ad)
Flute: Reasonably straight teeth, longer and somewhat thinner fingers, thin to medium lips. Flute players do not usually have many problems with playing while wearing braces, which is a consideration for many as their child enters middle school. Because of the way the lips are placed on the flute (called the "embouchure") students are usually more successful if their lips are thinner.
Clarinet: The main consideration for the clarinet is the length and width of the student's fingers. Clarinets are an "open holed" instrument, meaning that the student has to cover and seal the key holes with his or her fingers. Wider fingers are better, and usually fingers that are not overly long are better. Like the flute, this instrument also causes few problems with braces.
Saxophone: While there are several types of saxophone in the band, most beginners start with the alto sax, mainly because the others are too large for most fourth or fifth graders to handle. As a saxophone player for over 40 years now, I can tell you that the sax is one of the easiest instruments to play, and one of the hardest to play well. It is naturally out of tune, requiring the player to make constant adjustments in order to make it sound good. Sax players need to have enough size to handle the instrument, as it is one of the larger instruments given to beginners. Over the years I did not have too many students who were too small for the sax, but there were a few. Of course most students would grow enough that their size is not an issue by the time they are in sixth or seventh grade, but since most band students start in fourth or fifth grade it could be a problem at the start. The only other consideration with saxophone is to make sure the student doesn't have exceptionally small hands, as they need to be able to put their hands around a fairly large instrument and at the same time avoid contact with a number of keys on the side of it.
Trumpet: I had a fair number of students over the years who looked at the trumpet and said "I want to play that. It only has three keys, so it should be easy." I always had the same answer for them about the trumpet as well as the other brass instruments: Only having three keys doesn't make it easier to play; it makes it harder.Notes are produced on brass instruments by a combination of lip tension and key combination (keys on brass instruments are referred to as "valves"). So a student has to manipulate those valves while tightening and loosening his or her lips to produce the notes.Despite various remedies to help students deal with playing brass instruments while wearing braces, none are tremendously effective because brass instruments require the lips to be stretched flat across the teeth, which can cause discomfort. There should be little if any pressure from the mouthpiece on the lips, but many, perhaps even most students who are early in their playing careers will press the mouthpiece against the lips, causing discomfort. Still, after an adjustment period, most students with braces will have no trouble playing the trumpet.
French Horn: This instrument can be somewhat awkward to hold, and I have had some students over the years who were not large enough to hold it correctly. The main issue is braces. The French Horn has the smallest mouthpiece with the narrowest rim of all the brass instruments, and, like the trumpet it will be uncomfortable to play if the student puts too much pressure on the lips while playing. Some band directors prefer to start potential French Horn players on the trumpet because they believe it is easier for a beginner to learn on, then switch them at a later time. I never did that, for one main reason: the valves on the French Horn are manipulated with the left hand, where trumpet valves are manipulated with the right hand. Why take a student in his/her second or third year of playing and force them to adapt to a different instrument that requires a totally different playing style?
Percussion instruments can delight your child's senses as they grow in confidence and musical ability.(#ad)
Trombone: A slide takes the place of valves. Trombone players should have longer arms, due to the need to extend the slide to reach sixth and seventh positions. The good news is that most authors of band instruction books understand their audience, and do not write any pieces that require seventh position in their first year band books. After a year or so of playing, most students have grown enough that reaching seventh position is no longer an issue. The larger mouthpiece of the trombone makes crooked teeth and braces less of a problem as well, as there is less pressure on the lips.
Baritone Horn: Also called the Euphonium, although technically they are two different instruments. Its mouthpiece is similar to the trombone's, but it has valves like the trumpet. It is a larger instrument, so the main consideration is the size of the student and whether he/she is able to comfortably hold it.
Percussion: You will notice that I say "percussion" and not "drums." I know that many band directors would disagree with me, but I have always believed that students who want to play drums should be percussionists, meaning that they know how to play all the instruments in the percussion section. Watch a symphony orchestra. They do not have one player stationed at a snare drum, another at a bass drum, yet another at a xylophone, and so on. The members of the percussion section will move around and play whatever is called for in the piece the orchestra is playing.
The biggest requirement for percussionists from my point of view is an excellent sense of rhythm. Over the years some of the worst players at counting rhythms in my bands were in the percussion section! This is also the one instrument where I always limited the numbers. Most band pieces do not require more than 3 or 4 percussion players, yet the typical middle school band may have as many as 10 or more! There are few good options for handling a percussion section of that size. Probably the best is to have the entire section play on every piece, but have them cover their drums with a rubber "practice pad." If you do not believe the old saying "idle hands are the devil's playground" just watch a middle school percussion section in action sometime!
One of the biggest headaches to band directors, students, and parents alike is caused by parents who try to save money by purchasing poor quality instruments. They may be cheaper in the beginning, but not in the long run! Musical instruments are one of those things where you truly get what you pay for. Your safest bet is to go to a local music store and get your instrument. You will pay more, but in the long run your child will be happier, the instrument will last longer and need fewer repairs, and it will be easier to play.
