Learning how to play a musical instrument gives back something to soothe one's inner self. Maybe it's not the learning but the playing when you already know how to, but how are you going to reach that status if you do not start to learn at all? There are numerous musical instruments to choose from. While the most common is the guitar, others are equally satisfying as long as you enjoy playing any of them.
The flute is one of the instruments that can be played alone or with a backup orchestra, if you wish. The sound of a flute has a mesmerizing sound. A good composition for the flute will either lull you to sleep or wake you up in amazement. Just try to listen to Flight Of The Bumblebee rendered on flute via Youtube. With such piece so amazingly played normally on piano, having it played on flute makes it more amazing since you not just press the right holes but you also exert extra effort in blowing the right amount of air at the right time with the right mouth formation.
While most of the music pieces are classical in nature, it does not stop you to play pop tunes of your choice. Greensleeves may not be classical but it has attained its classic status some years ago. The lead tune of the flute is really hypnotic. If you want to adapt a tribal flavor, try Waka Waka! First, buy your Gemeinhardt flute so you can wake up to your dream.
