Choosing an Instrument

1/4

If you’ve clicked on this page, you’re probably thinking about learning to play an instrument or sing. There are many different instruments to choose from that play different styles of music – something for everyone!

It is important to choose one that you like. To help you choose the instrument that is right for you, click on the photo of an instrument to see and hear it played by a young musician.

Not all instruments are taught in every school so you might like to consider two or three different instruments in case your first choice isn’t available.

We’re very grateful to our colleagues at Brighton and Hove Music and Arts who made some of the videos and have kindly given us permission to use them.
