A lot of people like music, but a few entirely devote their lives and careers to it. If your child is one of the latter, you have a role to play in supporting his or her career dreams. Even if it’s just a hobby your child is really passionate about, it’s still an excellent subject for gift giving. There are a lot of gifts out there that are good choices for a music-loving child, and we’ll go over three of the most practical.
Perhaps obviously, a child who loves music will appreciate being given music he or she likes as a gift. For example, if you know your child has a favorite band, you can get her that band’s new album, or even concert tickets to see a live performance. If you can’t ever seem to get your child the type of music he or she likes, consider gift cards to favorite record stores or digital platforms like iTunes. Music itself is actually a practical gift because receiving music he likes will stimulate your child’s imagination and creativity and perhaps drive him to create his own music. It may very well be the inspiration for a long and successful career as a musician.
Recording Software and Tech
If your teen dreams of starting his or her own band, or already has, you can show your support by gifting them with software and technology that will allow them to record their own music. Look into the software for indie bands and pick a recommended program. Good microphones are a must, as are good quality headphones, like those at Tivoli Hi-Fi Pty Ltd. Good headphones can also double for listening to music normally, making them particularly practical.
Instruments and Instrument Maintenance
Finally, perhaps the most practical gift for a music-loving child is an instrument. Whether she’s still playing a starter instrument and could use an upgrade, or she wants to try her hand at playing a new instrument, the right instrument can make an amazing gift. If she’s happy with her current instrument, a good gift idea would be to buy her instrument a tune-up, clean-up or fix-up. Also be sure your child understands the basics of caring for his or her musical instrument(s), and strongly consider getting instruments insured.
Fortunately, there are a lot of practical gift ideas the musician in your family will really appreciate. The three mentioned above are some of the best ideas, but by all means look into your options. Music is a great way to connect with others, after all, so learning about your child’s musical likes and dislikes might very well deepen your relationship. Your child will be immensely grateful for your support of his passions.
