Why You Should Play an Instrument

Hey there, this John Henny and on today’s vocal tip I want to talk about Why You Should Play An Instrument.

The voice is a very special instrument and learning to balance all the acoustic changes in the voice can eat up a lot of our mental bandwidth. So playing a fixed instrument like piano, guitar, can really allow you to focus on other musicianship skills, like timing and phrasing, and it will give you a deeper understanding of music itself as you’ll be able to work chords and work on your ear, etc. 

So every singer should really become at least somewhat proficient on an instrument, and the most perfect instrument is piano just because of the way it’s laid out. It’s very linear and visual. But guitar, for me, is a very close second. So if you don’t play an instrument, I recommend you get started now.
