There is more to music gifts than picking out someone’s favorite Country Western or Rock band CD.
Music gifts come in all styles, shapes, and sizes with some surprisingly great finds.
From music themed clothing to purchasing your child’s trumpet for high school band, this selection of online catalog stores offers “music stuff” for everyone on your list.
Instruments for students
Musician’s Friend has musical instruments to suit everyone’s taste. From stringed instruments to trumpets and drums, they can satisfy your musical cravings. They even have the recording equipment so you can hear the sweet music you make. One of Musician’s Friend’s better offers is band and orchestra instruments for school children at affordable prices. This student trumpet offers the same high quality as the rest of their instruments at a discounted price. Can’t buy the instruments outright, check out their financing options, or used instruments.
Decorative sounds of music
Do you enjoy both music and fine décor? Then a music box gets you both! Choose from delicate inlayed music boxes that play tunes such as “The Danube Waltz” or “Lara’s Theme.” If you want to kick it up a little, what about an Elvis jewelry box that will belt out “You ain’t nothing but a hound dog?” An assortment of music boxes can be given as a gift for any style or taste. Choose from carousel music boxes to ballerina music and jewelry boxes for little girls. All who receive them will treasure these music boxes.
Music as teaching
A teaching supply store is a wonderful resource for children to give them the opportunity to experience and explore music on a daily basis. You can also look for rhythm sticks, sound makers and more to give a child who may be challenged with autism or cerebral palsy the chance to develop coordination skills through the power of music and musical instruments. Learning Express is ideal for parents and teachers alike.
All the extras you need
Select your instrument and sign up for lessons. Practice, practice, practice. That’s all it takes, right? Not by a long shot, as every musician, aspiring or accomplished knows well.
Look for accessories for musicians, at a place where shopping never ends, because they have everything you need to play, from rosin to metronomes and chin rests. Now that’s a musical gift any fan of an instrument would love!
Your own personal concert hall
Listening to your favorite music is one of the joys of life. But with a well-designed space, it can be hard to get the full range of sound as recorded by your favorite singers or groups. If building a music room isn’t in the budget (heck, for most of us, it was never even IN the budget!), a great pair of headphones is the next best thing. Adorama has lots of choices to bring the full range of each piece of music to you the way it was meant to sound.
Not a fan of wires and connections? They’ve still got you covered. These Bluetooth headphones bring you crisp, rich sound without tying you to a chair near the stereo. Move around, find a comfortable spot on the couch or relax in bed, all without losing a note of sound.
