New School Year, New Inspirations
By West Music Company
8/5/2015 8:32:00 AM

A new school year is right around the corner. New classes, new teachers, and new friends can all be great sources of inspiration. Channeling this inspiration through a musical instrument is an incredibly fulfilling and rewarding way to express yourself - and there is little or no experience required! Hand drums, bells, and chimes are relatively easy to get started on, and you get instant satisfaction.

A set of bongos, like this pre-tuned set from Remo, is an inexpensive way get the musical juices flowing and build a sense of time and rhythm. Or try your hand at playing a recorder – a great, unintimidating instrument to start on! Shop Recorders

If you’re drawn more toward the melody of a song, then a chime or bell instrument might be more your style. Try this Basic Beat 8-note Glockenspiel, or this Chromatic 7-note Handbells Set.
It’s never too late to pick up music. Why not learn a skill that will stick with you the rest of your life!
