Learn how to play the Harmonica
 
Music is a marvellous gift, and the harmonica is a part of that gift. Like other forms of music, the harmonica enables people to express emotions that are normally hiding. It helps influence our emotions, as well. It can give us peace during times of anxiety and lift our spirits in times of sorrow. Music means a lot when you create it, though, listening isn't bad either. Still, nothing will ever beat making music. The producer finds the benefits being much more satisfying than for people who only listen. 

The harmonica allows people who are normally challenged at learning instruments to start enjoying the satisfaction of creating music in a very short period of time. Needing to know how to read music is not a must for learning the harmonica. All you need is the music in your head to inspire you. It's just like humming or whistling. It will only take a few hours of practicing to learn the notes on a harmonica. After about a day at most, everything should start working, and it becomes natural. 

You can play your harmonica, much like how you'd sing a song, without even thinking. Just keep the song you want to express in your mind. The only real knowledge you need to play the harmonica is to go through the notes to know what sounds like what. Personal experience is the easiest way to learn an instrument like the harmonica. It won't take as long as you think to master! 

The harmonica is very small, so you can carry it everywhere. People who are obsessed with the harmonica will have it with them at all times.
