How To Play Musical Instruments

Press A In Front Of An Instrument

Musical Instruments

Stand in front of any musical instrument and press the A button in order to start playing it! Be careful, as you can only do this when standing in front of the instrument - from the side or the back simply won't work.

Play Hand-Held Instruments As Well

Musical Instruments

Non-stationary instruments that are held and played in your hand, such as the Tambourine or Pan Flute, are also available! Simply equip them and press the A button to use them. They can also produce sounds when placed down on the floor as well.

Instrument Play Random Notes

In previous games in the franchise, when you interacted with a musical instrument, the Village Melody would play. In New Horizons, however, random notes will play instead. Additionally, if you hold the A button on an instrument, the same note will simply be sustained.

Only Notes In G Major Are Available

From what we were able to confirm, when you press the A button on an instrument, it will play a random note in the G Major Scale (G, A, B, C, D, E, and F#), in various possible octaves. It is not possible to select specific notes you'd like to play. You can, however, do that using the Island Tune!

As a heads up - the notes you okay are not necessarily random. They will match along with whatever music is playing in the background :)

I noticed that you’re still missing maracas.
