Buy a Musical Instrument Day
When is Buy a Musical Instrument Day? This holiday is always celebrated on May 22
Today is Buy a Musical Instrument Day. Everyone was introduced to a musical instrument in grade school. Remember the Recorder? It was the first musical instrument we played and hopefully learned. If we were all thumbs or tone-deaf, the recorder was the only instrument we ever played. However, if we were musically inclined at all, most students advanced to other instruments. Eventually, they joined a school band or orchestra.
Isn’t it obvious how to celebrate Buy a Musical Instrument Day? If you are a musician in need of a new instrument, today could be a very good day indeed! If you have been considering taking up a musical instrument, today can be your starting point. And, the good news is you’re never too old to begin playing a musical instrument. Many senior citizens pick up musical instruments as a hobby. They even form senior bands, often playing in public.
Song of the Day: American Pie (The Day the Music Died) by Don McLean (1971)
