General Gift Ideas for Musicians
Why not give a gift membership of our site? We have branded gift certificates you can print out and personalize.
Alternatively Sheetmusicplus gift certificates can be sent by email or post.
Choosing gifts for the musician in your life or to point your friends in the right direction does not necessarily mean buying a concert grand piano! We hope to give you some less expensive ideas!
One of the things everyone enjoys is playing in front of their own private orchestra and taking the lead solo role, a bit expensive but a solution is available from the Music Minus One catalog. They have specially recorded CDs with the soloist removed, it comes with the correct sheet music for the solo instrument. It is great fun and the cost is normally around $24.95. Have a look at our Music Minus One site page for more information.
For the less experienced player or someone wanting a master class lesson then there is the teach yourself books and video range. Prices are very reasonable. You can see the categories on our Teach Yourself page.
For the theory expert or the musician who wants to know more about their favorite composer, we have a Bookstore page (we are an Amazon associate), which lists all the major Composers and famous classical players. Here you can browse the list of all books available without leaving your armchair!
Does your musician want to compose his own music? Beethoven used paper but today there are a number of electronic versions, where you can notate, playback, print and publish your work online. Have a look at the selection we have found (and use for this site) on our Notation page.
If you are feeling generous we have links to digital pianos and keyboards sellers. There is a wide range to choose from.
Back to basics there is always the latest sheet music whether it is pop or classical. We recommend sheetmusicplus as they not only have a huge selection but we have recommended many hundreds of visitors to them - their service is excellent.
Everyone needs some accessories! Metronomes, tuners, strings and so on. See the Amazon accessories page.
What about a poster or calendar of their favorite star. Have a look at Allposters for some ideas.
Finally there is always this site, you can purchase a gift subscription to our members section. This gives unlimited site downloads, separate instrument parts and access to a selection of sheet music that is not part of our free site.
