Natives of this sign are down-to-Earth, home-loving, relaxing, and elegant. They prefer to rely on others and being surrounded by people they love and trust. Instruments such as the tuba, the bass, or the double bass, offers them the chance to provide solid foundations to any musical assemble. Famous bassists born under the sign of the Bull include Jaime Preciado from Pierce the Veil, Devin Sola from Motionless in White, and Zack Merrick from All Time Low.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Natives of the sign of the Twins usually have plenty of interests and cannot make up their minds for one single instrument! They want to do everything, and if possible, at the same time! The best instrument for a Gemini is the piano, which is so versatile and offers the possibilities to play endless genres and styles. Famous Gemini pianists include Chick Corea, Marvin Hamlisch, Lang Lang, and Marta Argerich.

But if we have to recommend something, how about singing? This will give you the chance to celebrate yourself and attract well-deserved admiration!

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Logical, practical, systematic, and perfectionists, Virgos make great musicians because they commit to practicing and improving their skills. The violin, thus, is a great instrument for this sign, since it can only be played right with plenty of hard work, effort, and a little bit of an obsession! Famous violinists born under the Virgin sign are Itzhak Perlman, Lindsay Stirling, and David Garrett.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra is represented by the scales, and it’s the typical sign that brings balance. In a family, in a group of friends, having a Libran means having someone who peacefully joins the pieces together, who helps the others work together as a team. Their obsession with symmetry, equilibrium, and beat, makes them perfect percussionists or drummers! Take, for instance, Tommy Lee, Dave Holand, or Buddy Rich.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
One of the most passionate signs, but also the ones who keep a lot of secrets to themselves, every Scorpio has an inner dark side. What best to express so much passion than with the electric guitar? Rock your world without the need to say a word! Some examples of guitarists from Scorpio are Michael Clifford from 5 Seconds of Summer, Kevin Jonas, and Kirk Hammet.
Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)
Always adventurous, in the constant quest for new experiences and knowledge, the natives of this sign love to travel and being in touch with different cultures. We strongly recommend an exotic instrument you bring from one of your trips around the world! How about Scottish bagpipes? Or an Irish tin whistle? A Japanese shamisen, perhaps? Perhaps a ukulele reminds you of paradisiacal beaches… such it does to the native Sagittarius multifaceted artist Bette Middler!
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Hard-workers, stable, dedicated, perfectionists by nature… Woodwind instruments such as the clarinet or the saxophone would be ideal for you to dedicate your time and effort and become better each time you practice. Some natives of this sign are saxophonists Chris Potter and James Carter.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Despite its name, Aquarius is Air! Each native of this Zodiac sign is unique in their own special way. They don’t just look at the world around them, they create it! Perhaps this is why so many famous composers were born under this sign. Have you considered taking music theory and composition? You could belong to the same group as Mozart, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Philip Glass, or John Williams!
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
This sign is known by inner creativity, an imaginative mind, and love for art. Therefore, they will play any instrument with their own personal touch. The trombone is a great instrument that will allow you to explore freely its sounds while not taking the spotlight, which is something you don’t consider necessary. A famous trombone player born under your Zodiac sign is the jazz musician Grover Mitchell, from Count Basie.
