According to a recent newspaper article, more and more young people are learning to play an instrument, the most popular being the piano, drums and guitar. Nevertheless, it also said that electric keyboards and guitars are increasing in popularity, suggesting that we’ll see a shift away from more traditional instruments towards electronic ones.

In another article, it was reported that archaeologists have found what they believe to be the oldest instrument in the world. It’s a primitive flute made from bird bone and mammoth ivory, more than forty thousand years old. There’s nothing surprising about the fact that our ancestors could play music, but what’s interesting is that they were making instruments so long ago.

Music’s important to people – we know this from the history of musical instruments. Although many of today’s instruments have appeared in the last thousand years, some of them originated in ancient civilizations, such as the organ and the trumpet. However, others couldn’t be more different from the instruments played by the ancient Greeks and Chinese. They’re the electronic instruments which we hear on all today’s pop songs. Instruments like the synthesizer have allowed musicians to create endless electronic sounds, while drum machines let them program drums with a perfect beat.

Nowadays, all of this can be done with an app like Garage Band on your iPhone. Children all over the world have grown up with technology which allows them to play almost any instrument, create their own songs and release them on the internet. The internet’s also created the potential for people to collaborate on online musical projects, so new sounds and ways of making music can be easily shared. The Virtual Choir is one example of this; more than a thousand voices brought together by the internet to create a digital choir.

At the same time though, we must remember that there are many young people without access to either iPhones or pianos. So what happens to them? Well, in the same way as people have been doing for millennia, they make music in any way they can; by whistling, clapping or just hitting a box with their hands. It seems to me that the future of music is not about what instruments we’ll be playing but how we’ll be using our creativeness and imagination.
