Which Instrument to Choose ?

Playing a musical instrument can be an extremely rewarding process. Whether it’s playing your first recital or getting together with friends for a good old “jam-session”,there is no arguing the joys of music.

With the extensive variety of instruments available, one can easily become overwhelmed when having to choose an instrument to study. The Musikon offers an invaluable service when it comes to instrument selection: the Bentovian-Boyed Analysis.

This analysis draws from physical characteristics and personality traits of the learner to provide an accurate indication as to which instrument he/she is most likely to excel in. This is a free service that is offered, as we believe that in order for a child to reach his/her full potential, the right instrument should be selected. But fear not –for those individuals whom wish to study a particular instrument, the NW Musikon fully supports you.
