|When did you start playing melodica?||
|What is your playing level?||
|What musical genres are you interested in?||
Jazz, pop, rock, classical
|What is your musical background?||
I play mostly tenor saxophone. Over the last decade or so I have dabbled in other (mostly reed) instruments: clarinet, harmonica, bagpipe chanter, recorders, and electronic keyboard.
Just recently I have become interested in accordions, which I find fascinating and I’ve given myself a year to study them before thinking of which one I might buy. My interest in accordions led me to discover the melodica, which also interests me. I just bought a Yamaha P-32D, which is nice.
|What melodicas do you play?||
Yamaha P-32D, bought in Jan. 2020.
|Anything to add?||
I would like to see the melodica treated as a serious instrument. Sadly, harmonicas, recorders, and melodicas are often seen as instruments only for children. I am helping to try to change the perception.
