Check out the new instrument we have at my home!
I ordered this melodica on Amazon as a surprise for my husband for Valentine’s day, although I plan to make use of it too in the future. =)
To play the melodica, you must blow very gently into the mouthpiece and starting pressing the keys. The sound very much resembles the sound of an accordion. Be careful – don’t blow too hard else you may blow the reeds out of place.
It can be played two ways: with the short mouthpiece held in your hands…
Or using the tube mouthpiece sitting on a table top…….
It even comes with a carrying case……
This one is a Hohner 32-key melodica, but 37-key melodicas are also available.
Now before I leave you today, I must leave you with a few videos I found of YouTube, so that you may hear the wonderful sound of the melodica. The audio in these videos is a bit harsh; in person, the sound is a bit more pleasant.
