A Trumpet Case As A Birthday Gift From WWBW

This particular trumpet case at wwbw that I have finally decided on looks like a good quality product at a good price, just in time for me to order for my oldest son’s birthday,  that has just crept up on me this year. At WWBW they don’t charge any shipping fees on the majority of orders and I’ve had good luck with them in the past so I hope that they pull through for me again this time around.

They have such a great variety of trumpet case that have a wide variety of price points to please just about any type of budget that a customer could ask for. They also offer special discounts of educators which I think is the cherry on top for this company! I guess this is one good reason that they have been around and in business for well over 35 years.

As my kids grew older it seems to get harder to find and be able to afford presents that they will actually appreciate and use. This case has been on his wish list since before Christmas. I’m glad that I remembered just in time.

Parenting Discussions

Last week I discovered a discussion board about parenting. The very interesting part of the board is that the users are separated geographically, with one board for parents in New York City an another board for parents in San Francisco. Evidently, plans have been made to bring on more cities in the near future.

In the meantime, it is amazing to read the different attitudes between parents on the two coasts. This is beyond mommy blogging and quite an introspective on mothering differences. And, of course, I have opinions on several of the topics, so I have made a few tentative posts to see if my thoughts are received well or will I be flamed for my opinions?

For A Fleeting Moment In Time

It ‘s just that as much as I love music, I just don’t know all that much about reading music or playing any of the musical instruments that are designed and made to make beautiful music. So when my daughter started asking me if she could get a guitar and start taking lessons I was floored. She has her eye on a few guitars at musician’s friend, but to be honest I just don’t know if that would be the best way for her to go right off the bat.

I don’t mind getting her a guitar but I really don’t want to invest more money than I have to before finding out the whole story as well as having concerns that she will lose interest and I’ll be left holding the whole bag, the guitar, the all mighty 22 watts amp along with all the other pieces of that brief time that my daughter expressed such an interest in learning some type of musical instrument or learn how to sing!

Project Delivered

Well, after several hectic days working on that project, I sent in the draft and expected to finish it up the night before meeting with the client. But the client had a change of plans and came in a day early, so they flew with the draft. That was a little disconcerting, but he says it was a hit. So it’s done and I hope we get to make the deal. Cross your fingers for me!

Deals To Be Found

Was considering purchasing some type of musical instrument for my nieces birthday since she is showing signs of actually have some talent that most of our family inherits, on both sides, so maybe she got a double dose. There might be a need for head phones like the sennheiser hd 201 one that I pictured below, for her parents to use while she is learning a instrument like the sax!

Her mother has been urging her to try and learn the saxophone, of all things. I’ll keep my opinion to myself on this subject. I’ve been spending a bit of time online at various websites checking out what it is out there these days and for how much. Berg Larsen seems to keep popping up with saxophones and their various equipment that is needed for such a complicated musical instrument. But like I said I’ll keep my opinion on the choice of musical instruments to myself.
