Musical Instruments in Spanish

Latin people tend to be very musical and when you visit a Spanish speaking country (particularly in Latin America) you will find music played everywhere – blasting out of public buses driving by, vibrant live music scenes in local bars and clubs…any excuse for music and it will be played energetically. So how do you say “I play the ____” in Spanish? It’s really very simple “Toco el/la _____.” Or to ask someone if they can play a specific musical instrument, you say, “¿Puedes tocar el/la ___?” Practice drills using the vocabulary here and you will expand the range of vocabulary and grammar structures that you have mastered.

Remember that all nouns in Spanish are either masculine or feminine, it seems quite confusing at first, but most masculine nouns end in “o” or “e” and take the definite article “el” and most feminine nouns end in “a” and take the definite article “la”.
