Can this "play" be used for musical instruments or just for games?

You can use the word "play" (chơi) for musical instruments and games.

But not all musical instruments. chơi ghi-ta, but not chơi saxophone, clarinet, or any wind instrument.

  • Yeah, but if you want to talk about someone who can play saxophone, clarinet, .... you can use "play" means "chơi".

e.g: He can play saxophone, clarinet,.... /Anh ấy có thể chơi saxophone, clarinet,....

  • When you want to describe the action of playing those instruments, you say "thổi" (blow)

e.g: He blows on the trumpet / Anh ấy thổi kèn trumpet.
