Last week I was on vacation in Arizona, and if you know my family at all, you will not be surprised to hear that one of our stops was at the Musical Instrument Museum.
I learned that musical instruments come from all different times, all over the world, in all different shapes, sizes, colors, and sounds.
First, we’ll start with the old-looking ones.
These next instruments, some teenage boy was just like, “Lemme grab some random crap and make noises to impress someone.”
But if everyone just played THESE instruments, maybe band people would get a good rap:
At the Musical Instrument Museum, I learned that size does matter…
…but animals apparently don’t matter.
Also, somehow Taylor Swift made it in here.
She shared a floor with an awesome, historic military piano that was parachuted down to soldiers during WWII.
Most importantly, though, I found a solution for all marching band directors’ problems: instruments that play themselves.
The Musical Instrument Museum was actually one of the coolest museums I have ever been to! Make sure to visit if you are ever in Phoenix.
