What’s this musical instrument?
The elementary students in school bring everyday this “blow-organ” and I wonder what this instrument called. Now, I know. It’s a melodica. It’s small, light, and portable. It’s popular in music education, especially here in Thailand. It’s a free-reed aerophone which, at its simplest, is a small piano with a mouthpiece. It is a fairly easy instrument to learn and is more affordable than many other instruments.
Few years from now my Hyzyd will soon learn how to play this musical instrument. They said it’s easy to learn melodica. Isn’t it too late for me? Maybe my brother who has some experience playing the piano will aid me in learning to play the melodica. The melodica can create sounds that suit almost any genre. What I need is to find my own combination of styles, and use the instrument to its full potential.
Here’s a video of how melodica is played and sounds:
