Music Performance

Instruments in music are used to express and convey different kinds of emotions or meaning. Musicians often times choose between learning multiple different instruments or honing in their skills for only one. Learning multiple instruments allows musicians to express themselves through different sounds. This isn't to say that it's impossible to convey multiple different meanings with just one instrument. A commitment to one instrument often leads into the experimentation and generation of new ideas! 

Creativity is key. There is never one set way to learn an instrument!
