We all know about violin, cello, piano, and voice lessons, but what about exploring less familiar options at CYM?
We offer lessons in a number of instruments beyond those listed above. Consider if you will, the ukulele – perfect for younger beginners, but great for any age. A ukulele is popular at parties, so be prepared to accompany random sing-alongs once you master even just a few chords!
Or maybe you want to channel your inner Richard Starkey, a.k.a. Ringo Starr, and learn to play a drum set?
Or perhaps you love jazz and others genres and would like to explore options for electric bass. Did you know pit orchestras are often looking for electric bass players? The bass provides a crucial beat and harmonic center for any band. Why not give it a try?
And one instrument that you can play and it will always put a smile on your face: the banjo. Did you know you can’t be sad and play a banjo tune? According to Steve Martin, highly talented actor, comedian, writer, musician, and banjo player:
“The banjo is such a happy instrument–you can’t play a sad song on the banjo – it always comes out so cheerful.”
Talk with your family and see which of these instruments might tickle someone’s fancy. Let us know if you have questions – visit www.youngmusicians.org today!
