Today’s Reason to Celebrate – May 22

Here’s a reason to celebrate today…


No one knows when the first musical instrument was invented, but historians believe that flutes made of animal bones date back about 37,000 years.

Today there are 6 main instrument categories – percussion, woodwinds, brass, strings, keyboard, and the catch-all, electronic.

Worldwide, the most played instrument is the piano, followed by the guitar and the drums. Other popular instruments include the flute, ukulele, saxophone, clarinet, trombone, and violin.

Not only is playing a musical instrument fun, it can also help you in other places too. Children who play a musical instrument are shown to read better, have a larger vocabulary, and work better in teams.

Busting out the guitar tonight! Strum on, ladies and gents!
