NAMM show 2013

                                   NAMM 2013




My husband and I go to the Namm show every year.  It's great to see all the new instruments, friends, and have a couple of coffees! We walk around and visit the many booths.



 My husband is a sax player and Yamaha sponsors him. SO...our first stop is the Yamaha division.
We visit with a friend from many years ago that now works for Yamaha.  Good times!



 Amazing display of strings!


Woodwinds  and Brass galore!


                         

 My fav display are the Daisy Rock guitars for girls. Such a great way to inspire girls to start playing seriously. These guitars are studio quality.


 Alfred music sent me a free copy of both of these guitar method books. One for the girls and one for the guys.  I am so excited to be teaching beginning guitar to about 30 students. These books have been so helpful.  ALSO love that I get to teach them "Stairway to Heaven"and "Ode to Joy". I got an app for my iPhone so I can tune all of the guitars. I really suggest this to assist in tuning your guitars.


  A WALL of amps....a sneak smile :)

                                   
More percussion instruments than you have EVER seen!

 They had tons of recorders in every color. I loved this one.

Support your local music store when buying instruments, books, and misc music supplies.
 In my area are Sam Ash,Guitar Center, and Baxter Northrup.

Smile and the world smiles with you!
Thanks
Avah
