The Gift Of Music - Great Musical Instrument Gifts For The Kid In Your Life.

Updated on March 16, 2011

Exhaustive research has shown the powerful effect music has on children.

According to Dr. Agnes Chan of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, studying music stimulates the left side (your child's) brain, thereby, improving overall brain function and permitting the brain to do better at other tasks. - Who knew?

In addition to encouraging their inborn creativity, music also possess the ability to soothe frayed nerves and lift downed spirits.

In retrospect, how many of us have witnessed the joy our children experience as they bang away on pots and pans, or other home-made musical instruments.

So why not give the gift of music, and stimulate your child's creativity and love of music.

* Strumming On The Old Banjo.

Probably not your most traditional kid's musical instrument, why not think "outside the box" and gift your budding musician a bright red toy banjo.

Place this unique musical instrument in their hands, and watch their creativity take off.

* Little Drummer Boy/Girl.

My toddlers loved using our pots and pans as their own personal drum-sets.

Unfortunately, mommy needed her pots and pans for cooking, and it was really cutting in on their session times.

A cool set of drums made a world of difference. I got my pots and pans back and their sessions continued uninterrupted.

* Party Like A Rock-Star!

Why not let your little one's inner-rock star shine through.

My one year old loves to sing and dance already, and she'll use anything as her personal microphone.

If your little one likes to sing and dance like mine, musical instruments such as a guitar or jazzy microphone will be right up his/her alley.

* The Classical Pianist.

Do you have a small classical pianist in the making?

Then a cute piano will be the key to get your little ones started on "tickling the ivories."

Available in a variety of sizes and colors, a children's piano will truly hit the spot for your little musical prodigy, giving them hours and hours of enjoyment.

* Anybody For Salsa?

My toddlers love Salsa Merengue and any other music of the Latin persuasion.

So we tend to spice things up a bit with a great Melissa And Doug band in the box set, that includes castanets, maracas, castanets, tambourines, and other fun instruments.

This band in the box has provided them hours of musical fun.

* For The Beginner.

There are also great finds for the beginner who's taking his/her first steps into the fascinating world of music.

If you're not sure what may tickle your child's fancy, why not start them of with this nifty set that offers several instrument choices for your child and his/her playmates.

- So why not give your child the gift of music - encouraging their natural creativity, and engendering a love of the musical arts.

The choices here are immense.
