The Gift of Music

The hustle and bustle of the season can leave you feeling drained and stretched thin

As we find ourselves quickly approaching the holidays, take a moment to enjoy some down time with your family and loved ones. Life moves so fast … slow it down and take a respite with a favorite CD or playlist to enjoy each precious moment. Also take some time to record your family singing songs or telling stories. With cell phones and tablets, technology has made recording very simple. I’ve started this with my little ones and it is beyond precious to hear them singing their favorite carols. I can just imagine how dear those recordings will be as they grow. Treasure every moment!

During the holidays, remember to make some time for yourself and your loved ones. Step back from the frantic pace and do something that truly puts the spirit into your holiday season. And don’t forget the music!

Still looking for the perfect gift?

For the kids, a floor tom or maracas are always a great “go-to!” And for that favorite uncle or big-kid at heart Grandpa, a ukulele will be a huge hit (if they can pry it away from the little guys)!

We also have CDs that make great gifts.

Our suggestions for the perfect musical gift:

  • Baby’s first Christmas: Baby drum, egg shakers, and ocean drum
  • Perfect for preschoolers: Shark ukuleles, floor tom, bongos, Putamayo CD’s and castanets
  • Great for young families: A Sprouting Melodies gift card!

Our Intergenerational Holiday Sing will be happening on Monday, December 19th at 6PM. This will be a special event in conjunction with Onset School of Music and will be taking place at their facility. Come and de-stress with some music making in the holiday tradition!

Have a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year!
