Tip 99: Learn Another Instrument
Take up another instrument.
Learning how to play a new instrument can help you to understand music in many ways. Producing sound in a new way is exciting and will inspire you to play more, or even compose.
Some instruments are best suited to proper lessons (like the bassoon, or double bass) – they are expensive and quite difficult to learn. But many instruments are cheap, easy to pick up and you can easily teach yourself.
You could try the recorder, harmonica, electric keyboard, glockenspiel, ocarina, penny whistle, panpipes or fife.
