The Fastest Instrument to Learn

If you’ve always wanted to play a musical instrument, Aerophone mini is the fastest way to realize your dream. This fun modern wind instrument is super-easy to learn, so you’ll be playing along with your favorite songs in no time. The fingering is simple to understand, and there are no complicated chords to learn like piano, guitar, or ukulele. Six great onboard sounds let you explore a variety of music styles, while the compact design travels anywhere you go.

With Aerophone mini’s Bluetooth connectivity and free companion app, you can jumpstart your music experience and progress even faster. The app includes over 50 additional sounds, plus a variety of easy-to-follow lessons to get you started. It’s also possible to stream songs from your mobile device and jam along! And by plugging in headphones, you can get lost in your new musical world without disturbing anyone.

A World of Inspiring Sounds

Aerophone mini offers a diverse range of instrument types to enjoy with your favorite music. Saxophone, flute, violin, clarinet, trumpet, and synthesizer sounds are built in, providing a variety of traditional and modern tones to explore. And by connecting to the Aerophone mini Plus app via Bluetooth, you have instant access to over 50 more. Sounds are organized by type in the app, making it a breeze to find new tones and get inspired.

Simple Fingering for Fast Learning

The recorder is a popular wind instrument for introducing young children to playing music—maybe you even played one in school. Aerophone mini’s fingering is based on the recorder, allowing you to start making musical sounds in minutes. And with the companion app, you can instantly transpose the digital sound engine to any musical key. This means you only have to learn one fingering to play nearly any song!

Easy Breath Control

For good pitch and tone, acoustic wind instruments require focused breath control techniques that can take a long time to master. But Aerophone mini sounds great immediately, thanks to its digital sound engine and expressive breath sensor. Just learn the simple fingering, blow into the mouthpiece, and away you go!

Start Playing Right Away

The Aerophone mini Plus app lets you hit the ground running with 11 practice songs and easy-to-follow lessons. The app visually displays fingerings for each note, so there’s no need to fuss with complicated music notation. And with adjustable tempo, you’re able to start out slow and build up speed as you feel more confident. You can also stream songs from your music library with the app, and it’s even possible to turn down the vocal for karaoke-style playing and singing.

Practice Anytime with Headphones

With Aerophone mini, it’s easy to enjoy playing music without bothering housemates and neighbors. Just plug in headphones to mute the built-in speaker, and then play freely to hone your skills without worrying about noise. Music streamed from the app plays through the headphones as well, giving you an immersive play-along experience.

Personalize Aerophone mini for Your Style

The Aerophone mini Plus app offers a number of ways to personalize the instrument as you become more familiar with it. For example, you can easily customize the playing response by adjusting the breath sensitivity. Higher settings let you play with very light breath pressure, perfect for when you’re just starting out. You also have the ability to create your own unique fingerings, which you can store in 10 layouts for later recall.

Play and Record Instruments in Music Apps

Many popular music production apps include software instruments that can be played and recorded via MIDI. Aerophone mini includes wireless MIDI support over Bluetooth, allowing you to take the next step and start composing your own music when you’re ready.
