Music is freedom; of thought, of speech, of imagination, and of creativity. In short, music is the freedom to express and feel your emotions. Just like we use words to express ourselves, instrumental tunes of music help us express our feelings. Music can be composed from numerous musical instruments, however not all instruments become popular. Following are 5 of the most popular music instruments that people play:

The Piano

The piano is a royal musical instrument. It is also called the king of instruments. Despite being a single instrument, a piano covers the full spectrum of any instrument featured in the orchestra. This adaptability along with the capability to produce a pleasant tune is what gives piano its name. Hence, the title it is given is justified. Playing the piano is all about the skill and mastery of the keyboard. If you love to play with your fingers, you will definitely fall in love with piano. The coordination between both hands is the major difficulty most people face while playing a piano.

The Guitar

The guitar is the center of all musical shows these days. It is considered to be the smartest and the coolest of all musical instruments. As compared to various other band members, guitar players get the most attention during a performance. Guitar offers unlimited musical potential and its players are considered to be the alpha-male every girl in the audience desires. It can be finger picked, strummed, or played with the combination of several techniques. Just as the piano, versatility backs the fame of guitars.


Drumming is not just an ordinary musical instrument, it has a lot more to it. Most people believe that drumming bridges the linguistic, cultural, racial, and gender gap between people. Aside from this, drumming also has psychological effects that help the mind and body connect to the vibrations of the Earth. These qualities in addition to many others make the drums the most popular musical instrument among the masses.


The flute has a very simple build up as compared to other musical instruments. The flute’s popularity reached its highest peak in the 19th century. It’s simple mechanism and the unmatched melody it creates is the major reason behind its popularity. Flute lovers believe that the melody of a flute touches the soft corners of a listener’s psyche. It soothes the disturbed heart and mind with its simple yet pleasant tunes.


The violin belongs to the larger family of strings. It is one of the most popular musical instruments that people play. The wide variety of music genres such as jazz, classical, rock and roll, soft rock, and baroque music are incomplete without a violin’s presence. There’s absolutely no doubt that this amazing musical instrument has certain attraction in its sound that grabs the attention of the listeners with ease.

The choice of music is very personal, and so is the choice of a musical instrument. The mediums through which music is created keeps changing, however the source is always the same – a pleasant melody, which fills our hearts and lives with inspiration and happiness.
