Learning to play an instrument is one of the coolest things you'll ever do. Whether you're just starting out in school, decided you wanted to play in a band, or have decided to learn to play music now that the kids have grown, it's a fun and rewarding thing to do.
If you don't already know what you want to play, that's great! It means that you have a wide range of possibilities to choose from.
Some of the instruments that we see come into our shop for repair or servicing have been bought at department stores, supermarkets, or eBay. These instruments are often of poor quality and workmanship. Yes, they are cheap, but they may do more to turn you off playing than to help you learn.
The beauty of buying a starter instrument from us or any reputable music shop is that you will receive advice and ongoing support. You can try having a conversation about replacing the strings or adjusting the neck with your friendly checkout operator at the supermarket, but I'm not sure how much assistance you will receive.

The Benefits of Learning to Play an Instrument
The ability to play a musical instrument is a wonderful thing. It is never too early to start. Children are naturally curious and imaginative, and many will be able to pick up music very quickly and develop a love for it. The ability to play an instrument and read music will be infinitely helpful later in a child's life.
Studies have shown that music can help children become smarter, develop their giftedness, become more mature, and more confident. If they are not yet out of elementary school, a good musical background will help them to succeed in middle and high school bands, setting an example for all of their peers.
