The Bassoon

Growing up in a family that has musical interest and friends that plays in a band, you get to be curious as to how they learned. Most of the people I know plays a guitar, piano, and drums. But one of the instrument that I find interesting is the bassoon. This wood wind instrument is used mostly in symphony orchestra and concert band. Just like the flute you will need all your force and power in blowing air against and through the blades to produce a sound. This instrument can be disassembled and placed in an exceptional bassoon bag for traveling. Easier to carry around unlike the guitar, organ, or drums. Hopefully too, music school here would offer more learning class on wood wind instruments like bassoon.

Guitar Case

Guitar has always been a common musical instrument that can be easily learned. As long as you know and got the chords correctly, you can definitely play your favorite song. But it takes experience and real talent to play amazing songs on a guitar, just like the artists in the music industry.

But of course, a great talent should be paired with a very nice guitar to produce such music. And that guitar should have an exceptional fender jaguar guitar case at musicians friend to keep it safe and protected. You see, nice guitars are quite expensive, so you got to have a good quality of guitar cases that you can use to store your precious guitar, especially when you travel.

Cars with Speakers

My brother loves his car so much that he tends to sleep in it. Yes, he even have these cute pillows inside and a little blanket to make himself comfortable at cold summer nights. One thing I am wondering though is that he put a loud speaker bigger than the usual in his car, that sometimes when we are riding it, I feel like my ear drums are breaking apart. I told him to look for cheap qsc k8 at musicians friend because it is better than the ones he had in his car. I also think that it will last for a lifetime than the one that he has right now.

Singing is my Hobby

I love singing and nobody can stop me from doing so. Since almost all of my family loves music, and there are relatives who can sing well, we always include a singing activity in our family gatherings. Thankfully, we have an uncle, who has a renting business for a karaoke machine with a shure 58 mic. Everyone’s excited when we rent a karaoke machine; they definitely would want to have their turn to sing right away. It is the most fun bonding we could ever have. Hopefully, this would happen as often as possible.

School Activities for Kids

Classes have already started, and everyone seems to be excited on what they will learn from their teachers. Students also look forward with school presentations showcasing each and everyone’s talent. There are contest like dancing, poster-making, and singing. Other’s will do a fund raising concert, where you will see students on how well they play musical instruments like Martin guitars and Zildjian drums.

School activities like this, develops a child’s talent which a parent could be proud off. However, students should still be more focused on academics rather than the extra-curricular activities in school.

Birthday Gift Ideas

My son turned 6 years old last April 20 and though I was not able to prepare for his birthday, he still had a blast. I was so busy last April because my grandmother who lives in Bohol died and we needed to be there for her burial.

And even though it was a last minute preparation, my son still enjoy his birthday party in my cousin’s private resort. We only invited our close friends and relatives and I forgot to buy him a birthday gift. But still, he was overwhelmed by our food preparation that he forgot to ask where his birthday gift is. Actually, the very reason why I wasn’t able to buy a gift for him was that I didn’t know what to buy him anymore. He has a PSP, an iPad, NERF guns, toy cars, hot wheels and match box, scooter, bike and the list goes on and on.

But I know in the future, buying him  birthday gifts will not be a problem anymore, because he is a music lover kind of kid so maybe when he grows up he will still have this love for music. I really hope that he will continue to love singing and that he will learn to play the piano, the drums and the guitars. So that when he grows up, I will need to check on how I can save on fender telecaster. Because I know he will ask for one in his future birthdays to come.

Thinking of a New Guitar

A few days ago I’ve been thinking of buying a new guitar for my family, I’ve been thinking that maybe having a new guitar would encourage my son to start learning at an early age. So, I’ve been checking out online shops where I can buy great Martin Guitars, as I am not sure if we have it here in our place. I’ve heard that these types of guitars are well known of its sound quality and durability. There are a lot of styles to choose from their top seller collection. I bet my son’s going to love it if I’ll buy a new one.

Busted Speakers? Invest in a Good One

Do you love listening to music while surfing the net, but you can’t enjoy it much because of your busted speakers? I can definitely relate to it! I’m sure there are musicians who also had the same problem. They’ve been playing music with their band but their audience cannot enjoy the show because of the low quality sound of music that they’re hearing. One great solution for them to produce good sound is the m-audio buddy. A little box that serves as a preamp for both instruments and vocals. This is such a good tool for beginners. Just like my cousin, I would let him check this out.

Christmas Gifts for Music-Lovers

I am not a musician, I am not good in playing any musical instrument but I have a lot of friends who are music-lovers and are good at playing musical instruments. It is 75 days before Christmas and I am thinking of buying a good banjo for a good friend. He loves to play string instruments so I know he would appreciate a banjo as a gift this coming Christmas. Musical instruments are great Christmas gifts for people who could appreciate receiving it. So we should give music lovers their fave music instrument rather than giving them a book, right?

Music Instruments as a GIFT

I’ve been really having a hard time to choose a gift for my cousin. I’m torn on giving him baby stuff since he’ll becoming a father soon, or something that he can use on his band since he’s a very good musician.

I guess it would be easier for me to shop on baby stuff because I’m very familiar with baby needs. However, I know that he’ll need something like a fender amp musicians friend for his career, which he can use in a very long time.

Oh well, how about a shirt instead? It’s very much easier, right?!
