How to Choose the Right Instrument

Welcome to the Lincoln School of Music! Picking an instrument can be as tricky as deciding what to watch on Netflix – so many choices, so little time. But don’t worry! We’re here to help you find your musical match, and who knows, maybe even help you unleash your inner rock star. Let’s dive into the four fantastic instruments we offer at our school and figure out which one’s your perfect fit.


1. The Guitar: The Cool Kid on the Block

Perfect for: Aspiring rock legends, campfire crooners, and anyone who’s ever dreamt of starting their own band.

Why you’ll love it: The guitar is like your all-access pass to cool-ville. It’s portable, versatile, and lets you serenade your way out of any awkward situation. Whether you want to play rock, blues, or country, the guitar has your back. Plus, who doesn’t look awesome with a guitar strapped on?

The Reality Check: Your fingers might complain at first, but those calluses are badges of honor. And yes, you might get tired of playing “Wonderwall” on repeat. But once you master a few chords, you’ll be the star of any jam session.

Humor Alert: Be prepared for every party to turn into an impromptu concert. And yes, everyone will request “Free Bird.” Just smile and nod.

Why you’ll love it: Drums are your ticket to being the backbone of any band. Feel the need to release some stress? Grab those sticks and let loose! Plus, drumming improves coordination and rhythm – and you’ll look pretty cool doing it.

The Reality Check: Yes, you’ll be the loud one in the house. Your neighbors might not appreciate your 10-minute solos, but they’ll be amazed at how quickly you can set the beat for any song.

The Reality Check: It’s not exactly portable, so spontaneous performances might be limited to your living room. But once you get going, the piano becomes a powerful tool for expressing your musical creativity.

Humor Alert: Prepare to be asked to play “Chopsticks” at every family gathering. And yes, your friends will request the theme from “The Entertainer.”

The Reality Check: Its compact size might deceive you, but don’t underestimate the ukulele’s potential. You’ll be amazed at the range of sounds and songs you can produce with just four strings.
