Musical Accessories & Gift Ideas!

Most people enjoy music, but not everybody gets the most out of it. You probably know someone who listens to music on crackly old speakers and has scratchy old CDs, and doesn’t realize how much better that music could sound. Or are you that someone?
Just getting better headphones or earbuds can make a vast difference. Get ones that are designed for great sound quality, not just for taking phone calls.
If you live in a noisy household and want to chill, a really good headphone set lets you soak up Beethoven or Leonard Cohen even if the kids are playing Peppa Pig at full volume. Bose, for instance, has noise cancellation built into its best music headphones, though admittedly at a high price.

Wireless earbuds are so much more convenient than wired. (If you want to take your pullover off, no wires to get in the way!) For workouts, try earbuds with ‘wings’ or hooked designs to keep your earbuds firmly secured while you run or push weights.
Good speakers are important, whether you’re looking for big speakers in the family room or just a couple of wireless speakers for your computer desk. What you listen to can dictate your choice; speakers with a good bass make rock music really rock, but you might want a different balance if you prefer classical.
You might even decide to take the step into playing a musical instrument. You’re (probably) not going to become Jimi Hendrix or Sister Rosetta Tharpe overnight, but there are plenty of ways to get started and work your way up. If you just want to add a bit of rhythm, start with egg shakers or maracas, and you can work your way through bongos or the djembe for a bigger sound, or into hang drums or tongue drums to start playing melodies.

Electronic keyboards are a great way to learn music and get into creating harmonies, and modern keyboards have good key action and fine musical tone. They’re slim, too, so if you don’t have a lot of room, they’ll stow way easily, and are portable if you want to play a gig with a band or just jam with some friends. Nice as grand pianos are, they’re not easy to move!
And above all, just keep your ears open. You never know, you might hear world famous violinist Joshua Bell playing free on the subway. (Yes, it actually happened!)
