Ukuleles have become incredibly popular over the last few years and there are loads of different brands. These are great for younger and adult players. They bring in elements of  Guitar, using Fret positions, Chords and strumming. Soprano Ukuleles are the smallest size available so easy to transport and for young players. These Brunswick Ukuleles  are great value from €34.95 and in a variety of colours. If you are looking for something funky and different the Koda Range of Ukuleles have loads of different designs as well as being available in PolyCarbon, which is sturdy and hard wearing. 

Keyboards for Christmas Gifts
From €46.95 (Power Supplies, Stands etc optional)

Digital Keyboards have long been a staple of the Gift for musicians and with good reason! Keyboards are a great stepping stone to Piano, although most keyboards will feature 61 Keys (Piano's are 88). There are smaller Keyboards like the Casio SA46 which suits young players too (See the Full Range of Casio here). Piano is a great instrument to start with even if you want to progress to others as it gives the student a great foundation and understanding of Music Theory. 

Violins for Christmas Gifts
From €93.99 (Outfit Packs)

Violin is a great portable instrument for all ages of player. There are a few more elements to learning Violin which differ from the Piano, Ukulele and Guitar. With Violin you learn finger positions and bowing. All Violins need rosin so keep an eye our for kits which include it or buy separately. The Koda Violin Range (See Here) are very affordable and come in some different colours. They also offer Left Handed Violin's which isnt something all brands offer. Another great brand of Violins are the Hidersine Range (See Here). These outfit packs have all you need to get started (Violin, Bow, Rosin & Case), reliable and great right out of the box. They also offer a nice feature in the 4/4 or Full size which uses geared Violin Tuning Pegs (Normally its a wooden peg which over time smooths and is a little tricker to tune).
