Using the Healing Power of Music

One of the things I really enjoy on a sunny afternoon or evening is the sound of music.  There is nothing like listening to your favorite songs as you drive along the back roads, off the beaten path where you are one with nature and enjoying the stillness of the environment.  I can just feel all my cares and worries melt away when I am cruising along listening to my favorite oldies, or other soothing sounds that help take my mind off the troubles of my world.  Playing an instrument is a wonderful skill to have, and is one that can take you all over the world.  A recent biography of the great pianist, Mary Lou Williams is a great example of this.  She was a child prodigy who at the tender age of 4, could play a song perfectly form memory after hearing it just once.  The first time it happened, it is said that it scared her mother so, she dropped little Mary Lou on the floor.

You never know if your child has a hidden talent until they have the opportunity to try out an instrument.  With cuts to school budgets, many children don’t have access to music and arts in their school.  Thank goodness, the Guitar Center offers lots of ways to learn music.  They have keyboards, sheet music, drums and other instruments that you can purchase, to help your child express their musical talent.  Who knows, they could be like Mary Lou Williams, and go on to have an award-wining, internationally acclaimed career.  If cost is an obstacle, consider using a money saving Groupon coupon to make your purchase from the Guitar Center.  They have deals that can save you 40% off guitars, 25% off selected merchandise during their hot summer sale, and even more when you unlock special codes for exclusive deals and special promotions.  And best of all, you can apply a Groupon from your smart phone, or use it instore.

Whether you choose to listen to music from the great artists of yesterday and today, or learn to make your own.  You can save a lot of time and money when you shop the Groupon way, and take advantage of a great deal at the Guitar Center.
