If you both aren’t very musically inclined, this can be really hilarious. And if one of you seems to have a knack for it, hey new instrument you can take up! It won’t be hard to find some tutorials online, and you can spend as much or as little as you want for the instrument. From a kazoo or harmonica to a violin or tuba, instruments run the gamut of prices.

Consider what your interests are when choosing an instrument – chances are if there is a part of music that interests you then there will also be an accompanying instrument. Some options fit into more than one category: guitar and ukulele, for example (which is why they are number one on this list) or drums and keyboard. An electric/ acoustic bass can fit into either category, too, but it is included with the string instruments because of its range.

If you are interested in learning to play any instrument together then take Sifu Scott’s practical advice when he says, “Do your research! We all know how expensive lessons can be. Take some time out beforehand to look online for local instructors who offer group classes at a reasonable price instead of private instruction. This way you’ll be able to learn in a social atmosphere without breaking the bank in the process!”

This suggests people should read different articles about instruments before choosing them individually so they know what kind of sounds they will be making and so they can teach each other. This also suggests that people should look for local instructors to lower costs. This article is not suggesting that people spend money on instruments if it is a waste of time and money because there are cheaper options (group classes).

Another good way to share music with the one you love is singing together! A lot of people don’t know this, but you can learn how to sing without taking expensive lessons from some famous singer’s voice teacher – though those help, too. Even just listening to someone else sing and then trying to recreate their tone and style can be a lot of fun. Try watching American Idol with the sound off, for example, and then try singing along! This is doubly helpful if you want to learn one person’s music and not just your own – lots of singers often cover songs that aren’t their own, so you might have a good time recreating versions of artists from Nicki Minaj all the way back to Michael Jackson.

Of course, if both of you are shy about it then this probably isn’t going to happen right away – but it’s always useful information for future reference!
