An Educational Guide to Musical Instruments
http://www.distance-education.org/Degrees/An-Educational-Guide-to-Musical-Instruments-A599.html Students interested in playing a musical instrument should research the types of sound each one produces. Choosing an instrument may prove difficult, because of the sheer amount of instruments available. Students should research each musical instrument to see which one resonates with them before randomly choosing one… Students who choose an instrument they love will find it easier to learn than an instrument they have no desire to play.
