    Flute? Trumpet? Clarinet? Sax? Say what?

    I am thinking of starting new music hobby and my eyes are on the wind instruments on the shelf of a music store.

    I thought I have decided on the mini-trumpet but when I saw the clarinet, I thought that this one is not bad either. Then next to it is the flute. And then there's saxophone. Now I'm confused.

    In terms of portability and ease in learning, which one should I choose? Anybody experienced here who can share a thought?

    i've experienced being in a band before. i played the trombone..that's coz my music teacher said it was the best for me. it has to depend on your fingers' abilities to "multi task" and your breathing too. i remember my sax and flute friends having to practice their pinkies once in a whle for certain notes. *** clarinet naman, oboe, etc those have wooden mouth pieces, parang hirap akong mag-blow through them.

    Hindi uubra download at how-to books. Hindi rin pwede dito maiksi patience, lalo kung matanda ka na(13, matanda na yan sa pag-aaral ng instrument),

    First, you have to learn to read notes. Theory ka muna, balik sa music 1. Kailangan mo muna malaman ang balor ng mga nota, mga tiempo(4-4, 3-4, 2-4, 6-8, 3-8 etc), kung ano ang sharp at flat, at ibang basics.

    Tapos, sige pili ka na ng instrument. Clarinet, Sax.. meron yang caņa or reed. Para sa'kin mas madali yan hipan, mas madali din magmaintain ng bocadura kahit matagal ka hindi mag-ihip. Pero, sa fingering ka patay, again lalo kung matanda ka na. Hindi yan parang pagtetext.

    Flute, hindi pwede barabara ihip dito. Aside from fingering, bocadura uli. Hindi pwede hindi nagpapraktis dito, kungdi puro hoothhh hoothhhh(singaw) maririnig.

    Trumpet, tatlo lang tiklada mo. Kailangan sigurado ang nota sa ihip mo. Konting lihis sa labi ng bukilya, iba na tunog mo. Good thing about brasses, kahit saan pwede ka sumali, (classical, jazz, ska, reggae)

    Hindi pwede sa mga instruments na yan ang pahobby hobby lang. Look for your local marching band. Mag-inquire ka kung pwede sumali, at kung magtuturo sila tumugtog sa kaedad mo.

    Kung gusto mo ng pahobby hobby lang, tapos learn at your own pace pa, mag-gitara ka na lang. O kaya, percussions ka na lang.. hehe. Mas madali makasali sa banda nyan. Pati sa school band, madali ka rin makakasali, kahit wala silang brass band.

    ^ Thanks for your thoughts.

    Well, hobby is supposed to be at leisure. That is why I want to learn and play the instrument as a hobby. I am neither planning of joining a band nor thinking of becoming a pro.

    I think you're underestimating my potential (nyahahaha, para namang meron ).

    Anyway, I am doing this just for fun.

    I do understand. However, I would still advise that you seek help from someone who does know how to play. That way you will learn to do all things properly. From reading music, proper blowing, correct fingering plus you will have someone to evaluate you and tell you how much you have improved, how good or bad your tone is and where you stack.

    It's also a lot more fun if you have someone to play with.

    So, have chosen an instrument yet?

    I am torn between these two mini-trumpets:


    I think this black one is cool.

    Those are called cornets. Ganyan nga cornets ngayon, colorful.

    Yeah, I like that black one too. Cool sa gig yan. Anong brand yan?

    I wish you luck. Enjoy learning and playing. Updates lang sa studies mo. Hehe.

    Saxophone is a good choice, brass instruments are really good sounding but sax is my favorite. I wish though that there will be more sax players

    tama ka, 30minutes na ako sa kaiihip, walang lumabas na tunog. akala ko sira yung cornet

    nung malapit na akong mag-collapse dahil sa kakulangan ng oxygen, atsaka ko napatunog. pero hindi pa stable. pahinga muna, ansakit na kasi ng bibig ko

    ^^

    Told you. Hindi basta pag-ihip sa instruments. I'm not a trumpet player ha. Pero napapatunog ko.. hehe.

    I hope I can describe it well ng written lang.

    Magkadikit dapat lips mo.. think of making a straight line.. pero loose at relax lang.

    Then, patong mo yung mouthpiece.. light at relaxed lang uli.. Maidikit lang ba.

    Pag ihip mo... hindi "hooo" or "woo" na parang umiihip ng birthday candle.. Dapat "tu", use your tounge.. dapat from your upper front teeth galing, then "tu"

    "tu" na parang dumudura.. hehe. tapos sustain mo yung wind.

    ay naaalala ko tuloy marching band days ko nung hi skul... ganun din sa clarinet, ilang araw kami ihip ng ihip na walang lumalabas ,at nung finally tumunog na, maling tunog pa! at ganun din yung ihip, "tu tu"

    pero yun nga din sabi ng bandmaster namin, mas mahirap trumpet at mga ganyan kasi tatlong keys lang gamit mo to produce all those notes! hmm.. tingin ko hanap ka ng magtuturo sayo, kahit mga ilang sessions lang, para makuha mo muna teknik. hehe. then pag nakuha mo na, at natugtug mo na range niya, you can go on from there at tugtog ka na ano gusto mo.
