3 Important Tips for Beginning Instrumentalists

Instruments are extremely captivating when performed well. However, some beginners find it difficult to maintain the fluidity that more experienced players possess. Like all skills, perfecting an instrument takes a lot of practice.

Here are the most important tips for anyone learning to play a new instrument.

1. Do breathing exercises.

One of the first challenges that people face, particularly with wind instruments, is finding a comfortable way of breathing while playing the instrument. This can be made much easier through breathing exercises. Maintaining steady breaths will help to play a song without getting dizzy. Once you are comfortable producing long, slow breaths, start to practice the breaths with your mouth in the position that you play in.

2. Practice finger agility.

As you get more comfortable with the notes, it is important to have fast, strong fingers. Much like typing on a computer, speed and accuracy contribute to fluidity. A song will flow much more easily if your fingers can keep up with the note changes. There are many different exercises to do to help keep your finger precision up, most of which you can do anywhere.

3. Maintain correct posture.

An experienced instrumentalist is much like an athlete because playing an instrument requires both mind and body control. Posture is key to producing solid notes. By sitting erect in a chair, with feet flat on the floor, your body will be able to maintain composure so your arms steadily hold the instrument.

There are many beautiful instruments to learn to play. It is especially entertaining when a classic instrument is paired with modern music. These simple tips will help even the most experienced instrumentalists keep the sound smooth.
