The Musical Gift Guide!

Central Music's Favorite Stocking Stuffers!

It's that time of year again, and we've collected our favorite musical gifts in one convenient list just for you!

French Horn Hand Grip
Do you know a french horn player? A hand grip for the left hand will always keep a good solid grip on the horn. It also keeps the horn from getting sweaty when marathon practice sessions occur. It will also double as a pencil holder so one will always be ready to mark their music and the director will consider them their best friend and an honor music student!

Stick Bag
For our aspiring percussionists, a stick bag holds sticks and mallets. Your student will be the envy of all other percussion friends, and the kids in the band will think they're awesome. The teacher will sing praises because your student will be the only one who remembers all his or her gear!

Drum Sticks
A drummer can never have too many sticks, and our Vic Firth sticks are buy one, get one free this holiday season!

Always be in tune for any rehearsal, or practice session. Your musician's playing ability will increase and all their band friends will stand in awe.

Korg Tuner Metronome

Combination Tuner/Metronome
We stock combination tuner and metronomes! If who you're shopping for doesn't have either, this is a great gift!

Music Books
Making music is fun! It can be even more fun when we put the lesson book down for a minute and just enjoy playing some popular music. A folio of popular jazz, holiday, or movie music can be a nice change of pace in our practice routine. Plus, grandma just loves to hear that Star Wars theme.

REEDS! Reeds chip and degrade over time, if there's one item a woodwind player will always need often, it's reeds.

Silk Swabs
Hodge Silk Swabs are a great idea for any beginning musician who hasn't gotten one yet. They can be hand washed and reused for many years!


Pad-savers are great for preserving pads after swabbing an instrument out! It gets the extra moisture left behind that the swab missed so the pads stay in good condition for a longer time. Pad-savers are one of the necessities to care for an instrument!

Mutes are wonderful gifts for any brass player (though a tuba mute might not fit in a stocking). Straight mutes are used by most any brass player, but if they already own one, cup mutes, or specialty mutes are also great!


Conductor Baton
Let's not forget the leader of the band.  A nice conductor's baton is a great gift to professional and aspiring conductors alike.

Still looking for more ideas? Stop by either of our two shops, and we'd be happy to help you find just the right gift for your musician! We also sell gift certificates, which can be purchased in-store, or online here.
