What instruments I think the Seven would play
(Not including if they can sing, that’s another post)
Okay I know everyone wants him to play piano, and yeah, I can see him playing piano. But I don’t know why, but Percy gives off ukulele vibes. So yeah, instead of playing piano like a pro, I imagine him softly playing songs on the ukulele with Annabeth.
…she can’t play instruments. Like, she helps out at camp with a tambourine or whatever, but despite her dexterity, she cannot play instruments.
You know, y’all are probably thinking: “Bruh, what instrument could Jason possibly play?” Well, you know what instruments the Romans played in the army? Trumpets. That’s it, ma boi Jason, before leading as Praetor, during his years as soldier and later Centurion, ma boi was the one signaling orders with a trumpet. And occasionally, that trumpet also doubled as an alarm for the fifth cohort.
I feel like Grandpa Tom taught Piper traditional Cherokee instruments (or modernised versions of them) when she was younger, but Piper to me always gave guitar vibes. To me, she felt like one of those girls who’d strum away on an acoustic guitar for days at times.
Can confirm, 95% of Asians kids, especially Chinese kids were nudged to do an instrument when they were little. They can drop it later to focus on their studies, but there was at least one instrument in primary school. That instrument, was piano for Frank. I was gonna go with violin, but I thought to myself, can you really see Frank with a violin? Uh uh. So yeah, Frank learnt and played the piano with his mom Emily when he was younger, but stopped after she died.
I feel like Hazel never really had the luxury to learn a musical instrument properly. But I feel like she’s one of those people who had a great music sense. Like, she can really only help out with percussions, but she’d randomly have a perfect pitch or something like that.
I know drums is probably the safe and more character fitting for Leo, but I really can’t get the image of Leo playing saxophone out of my head. I don’t know, it’s something about Leo plus one of the most sexy instruments out there that just vibes with me.
He was a rich, Italian boy born in the 30s, he gives me strong classical piano vibes. Kid had a diplomat for a grandfather so he was probably relatively rich. I dunno, I’m just imagining Maria playing on a beautiful grand piano with little Bianca and Nico, and it just feels right.
I’d like to stick to fanon here. I’d like to think that despite having a successful musician for a mother, the God of Music for a father, this boy has -3 musical abilities. Lee used to give him the maracas because you cannot screw up the maracas.
Lee Fletcher excelled at any instrument after learning it for 3 months. That was actually how he got a full ride to NYU (if they had those). Although unfortunately NYU never got to have him because he was supposed to go after the summer of the Battle of the Labyrinth.
