Not only is this one of the best ways to utilize their creative energies but they are certainly bound to have fun while they are at it. I was only five when my parents practically forced me to learn how to play the piano. It not only improved my posture but it also gave me something to brag about among my peers.

Here is a list of some of the best instruments to learn for a child:

1. Guitar

I’m going to start with this one because the guitar is by far one of the coolest instruments anyone can learn. Period. It’s also incredibly easy to learn. I admit that while I got piano lessons as a child, I learned how to play the guitar in my teens, pretty much on my own. I heavily relied on materials available on the internet and flash forward a few years, you should be able to find TONS of tutorials and learning resources.

Aside from it being cool, a guitar is one of the most fundamental instruments that will teach any child the basics of music. It should also help with manual dexterity that will further come in handy in other aspects of life. And if your kid does wind up playing guitar, here are some gift ideas that he will certainly love.

2. Drums

Now, I can almost imagine parents glaring at me right through this screen as I’m writing this. Most folks like to sleep peacefully, and for this reason, they avoid getting their kids battery-operated toys that buzz around all day, and while they’re at it, they also make sure their children don’t go anywhere near the drum set. Regardless of what you might think, I still think the drums are a great instrument for any child to learn. It might not be quiet, and I can’t promise that your kid won’t get a little crazy from time to time, but they’ll love you for it.

And if all hell really does break loose, you can always soundproof the space. That would be a good idea anyway if you want your kid to continue to pursue music. An added tip, you can get your child electric drums set since it is much quieter.

3. Piano

And how could I possibly have missed piano lessons? I got them myself as a kid even though I had to settle for a keyboard once my lessons were done. I started playing the piano while I was still pretty little, but it’s by far one of the easiest instruments to learn. First off, it doesn’t have any strings attached (sorry for the obvious pun) which means kids don’t have to tune or practice finger movements like they would have to with the guitar and violin.
