If you are unsure what to give that hard to buy for musician, we have lots of ideas to make shopping a breeze. Silly and funny musical instruments like kazoos, hooters and vibraslaps always go down well as music gifts.
Even if you don't have a musical bone in your body, you can buy jingle bells and tambourines. Then there are some musical gadgets that once you have them, you don't know how you managed without. Tuners, metronomes, capos and straps fall into this category.
Another unusual gift is a finger exerciser which will strengthen weak fingers and is good for guitarists, pianists and string players.
A loud metal hooter with a rubber bulb to squeeze that makes the characteristic honk is good for a giggle. For the guitarist who owns everything, there are banjos, mandolins and ukuleles. Guitar straps, banjo straps and ukulele straps make good gifts.
Nothing improves a performance more than practising the right way with the help of a sturdy music stand. Instrument stands will safely store instruments while not being played. Guitar hangers support guitars and ukuleles. Additional accessories like footstools are items that a guitarist wouldn't necessarily buy for themselves.
More gift ideas can be seen at our online store, or come into Crescendo Music, 454 Marmion Street, Myaree only 20 minutes south of Perth.
