When did you start playing melodica?

2020-01-15

What is your playing level?

Beginner

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.
