In this quiz we'll learn some Spanish words to do with music.

Let The Band Play

In this Spanish Medium Review picture quiz you will review some instruments and the emotions they invoke. One of the best things that everyone should do is to learn how to play at least one instrument. Not all instruments are complicated to learn. Take the simple triangle! However, just being able to play an instrument seems to bring harmony to a person’s inner being.

Learning to play an instrument can help a person to be able to focus in on the tiniest details. They can instantly see whether a note should be played long, short, for how many beats, whether it is sharp or flat and so on. All of that thinking and understanding is done in a millisecond but it takes time and practice to get there. Still, the process of learning to read music to play an instrument is a great way to learn just about everything else in life, including learning a new language.

There is a rhythm to learning and music teaches you that rhythm. So, for this quick quiz we are going to focus on some musical instruments and see how quickly your mind/brain can process the Spanish word for each instrument. Do you think you are in tune enough to make 100%! Well, then, let’s start playing!
