Our very own Rebecca shares what it it was like learning a second instrument
I’ve always been a piano player since the age of five. As a songwriter, I felt I wanted to expand myself by being able to play multiple instruments. I asked one of my coworkers at Everything Musical which instrument would be a good start to learn that is fun and easy? I was suggested to try learning the ukulele. I always wanted to learn how to play the bass and guitar. I was told learning the ukulele was not difficult and it would be a good start to try as my second instrument. After playing around for a while, trying to figure out what ukulele works for me, I have finally chosen the perfect one. I bought an Alvarez baritone electric ukulele. Two months later, I can already play a lot of songs, know what chords I am playing, and also wrote an original song.
Whoever out there thinks it is impossible to learn more than one instrument; it’s totally not. Anything is possible as long as you have the dedication to learn, have the passion and drive, and most importantly to just have fun with it.
