Music may have transformed throughout history and expanded into many different genres. But it has always been a crucial part of human society.

Depending on the type of music, it can boost memory, elevate mood, and help you feel calm, among many other benefits. Even if we speak different languages, music is universal and connects people.

A 2014 study by the University of Vermont College of Medicine has found that musical training may help children “focus their attention, control their emotions and diminish their anxiety.”

While the piano is the most played musical instrument across the world, not everyone can afford piano lessons. With the increasingly small floor area of a BTO flat, it also becomes a challenge to allocate space for a piano.

However, it shouldn’t deter you from exposing your child to other more affordable and less bulky musical instruments or even musical toys.

This is your cue to start honing your child’s musical abilities, as 22 May is Buy A Musical Instrument Day! Here are some musical instruments or musical toys that you can get on Amazon Singapore:
