Melodica : What is it?

Melodicas

A melodica, often called a pocket piano, is a wind instrument made with a small keyboard body designed to be blown like a harmonica. The keyboard plays chords, single note leads, and multiple note leads in two or three octaves. It is a small and compact instrument that can easily fit inside pockets and small bags. It is easy to play especially if the user knows how to play the piano.
