Keyboard Week, Impact Saturday and Lots More Goings On

The Keyboards are alive with the sound of Johnny (and Home Sweet Home!!)
And all of us (but especially Johnny) are really excited! We have a great range of Electronic Keyboards, Digital Pianos and all the accessories you could wish for. Not to mention a HUGE selection of tutor and playalong books for pianists of every level and taste! If you follow us on Instagram you will get to see a special keyboard featured every day with some great deals thrown in, as well as some sneaky shots from around our shop. If the Gram is not your thing, don't worry, you can keep up with everything we do on Facebook!

Keyboard News

So it would seem prudent for the first week of Keyboard Month, to feature some awesome Yamaha Keyboards

Sean loves Yamaha Keyboards!
If you hop on over to our website or come into our shop, you will find some amazing deals on Yamaha products at the moment - and the Keyboard department is no exception. And apart from the great prices, we have some amazing models with features that will make you sound great, no matter what your genre!

Pictured here with keyboard aficionado Sean is the Yamaha PSRE363 (bottom). This instrument is great because it has built in lesson plan options (including chord library), it's touch  responsive which is perfect for the beginner seeking that real-feel piano response, and it comes with Yamaha's amazing three year warranty.

In the middle is the Yamaha PSRE453. It's a 61 key model and has over 700 voices so you'll never be short on choices (ha that rhymes!) It's also armed with amazing DJ patterns to make you sound like a pro in no time. Fitted with USB and MIDI capabilities, you get so much for so little with this great package. Sweet!

On the top is the Yamaha PSREW400. It has similar features to the PSRE453 but double the power with a massive 12 watt dual speaker system. It's also a 76 key model so it has an extra octave. Again packed with the Yamaha Education Suite, so you can start learning straight out of the box. You'll be playing Home Sweet Home in no time, just like Johnny! 

Don't want to put pressure on you or anything, but deals like this won't sit here for long!

Folk Department News

The terrible stories on the TV these days would cause anyone to be in desperate need of a smile. So Mahalo has taken it upon themselves to give you your smile back!
Mahalo Smiley Ukes. Dave didn't get the memo.

These Smiley Ukuleles are adorable, and guaranteed to lift anyone's spirits (except Dave, apparently).

Originally only in the standard Smiley Yellow, they are now available in a wide range of colours, with Mahalo's signature great quality for a great price.

That signature comes from being the world's number 1 choice for Ukuleles. They are the only company that put the same amount of effort and care into their entry level instruments as they do their professional range.

Wherever you are in the world a strum of those strings will give you a small piece of Hawaii in your heart - and with the new Smiley range, a great grin on your face as well!

Band & Orchestral News

Things are hotting up in the Band & Orchestral department at the moment, with the school end-of-year program fast approaching. Lots of youngsters will be starting to think about what they want to play next year - and a huge chunk of those students will end up picking up a Jupiter Flute.

We have two models available, to suit different budgets. The 700 Series Student Model is our most popular and priced to help out frazzled parents who are juggling many back-to-school expenses. They are designed to be easy to play while retaining the kind of tonal characteristics usually associated only with Professional models. Sturdy durability makes them ideal for beginners while their accurate intonation helps students develop a good ear. The Jupiter 700 series flutes are carefully hand adjusted and go through a rigorous system of inspections and tests guaranteeing consistent high quality.

If you're after something a bit next-level, an instrument that will not only sound great now but have the features needed to continue through many years of learning and playing, then look no further than the 511 Open Hole Model. This is a well-made student instrument, featuring a silver plated head with solid precious metal lip riser - 92.5% silver content. The effect of using silver in the head joint makes the sound fuller and purer.

Jupiter are experts at making affordable student instruments. Whatever your child decides to play next year, The Music Spot and Jupiter have got you covered!

B1G1 Saturday Impact Day

This is pretty big. 

Our very first SaturdayImpactDay is happening tomorrow. On the first Saturday of every month, we have pledged to provide 7 days of clean water to a family in Cambodia, for each and every customer that we serve all day.

This is possible through our partnership with B1G1. Buy1Give1 is a Global Business Giving Initiative on a mission to create a world full of giving. They make it easy for purpose-driven businesses worldwide to make a positive impact by giving back in meaningful ways. The list of projects is extensive and all thoroughly vetted, and not only that, B1G1 covers the administration costs, so that you can be sure that 100% of your donation is going straight to a meaningful, impactful cause.

We have supported a number of projects through B1G1, and we have decided that every month we will hold SaturdayImpactDay, to make a huge difference in the lives of people less fortunate than ourselves. We have so many blessings in our lives, we should share them around!

Until next time, keep being awesome! ♫♪
