Musical gifts

My little boy loves music. It is a key part of his learning and I like to buy him music related items for Christmas and his birthday. Browsing through the Musicroom website I found so many items that I knew he would love but using the Gift Finder app really helped me to find suitable presents for him.

Using the dials you can narrow your search down for a gift for a music lover by altering the dials to reflect the type of product you are looking for - whether it be a particular type of instrument or a stocking filler, the price bracket and if it is for an adult or a child. The app is intuitive and if you are searching a particular type of instrument it opens up another category of beginner and intermediate. Ideal if you need ideas for a perfect musical gift but just don't know quite what to get.

With such a huge selection of gifts variable, I used to app to find some super pressies for my little man. The first item that the app brought up was actually as if it had read my mind from a few weeks ago. I had seen a video of these wonderful percussion instruments, brightly coloured and perfect for Primary aged children - Wak-A-Tubes. An amazing idea for him as we can both plays these together encouraging his turn taking and co-ordination skills.
Through the Gift Finder and looking through the site I found lots of goodies for Christmas from a keyboard, to a Djembe drum and a Frog Guiro like one he had loved at pre-school. Music is such a big part of our life, it's a way through to my son and a way to connect so is on our home education curriculum. Music is a daily calming influence and I want to encourage his interest in it.

The Stocking Filler gifts are great  - games, chocolates, kitchenwares, socks......all with a musical theme. Such unique and interesting presents for loved ones. Serious music items too for the professional - instruments and sheet music so whether you have a beginner or an experienced musician to buy for, you will find plenty to choose from.
