David Barton, a piano, flute and singing teacher based in Lichfield writes this blog entry:
- Do you find musicians hard to buy cards and presents for?
- Would you like to get your child something musical which will be useful in their lessons?
- Are you fed up with the same old black and white designs?
- Have you exhausted musical ties, piano-shaped rubbers, musical mouse mats and treble clef cufflinks?
If “yes” is the answer to all these, then over at David Barton Music we may have found a solution. These musical cards (which we believe to be unique) solve all your problems by including both the card and present as one. Each card is A5 size and there are a number of musical designs to choose from; inside is printed a piece of music composed especially for these cards (it is printed on the card and isn’t a loose sheet).
There are currently eight different cards available and they each include a piece for either piano, clarinet, oboe and flute. There are also a variety of levels to choose from right from Prep Test through to around Grade 5.
You can hear a sample of each short piece here and also see four of them on YouTube.
The recipient gets a beautiful high-quality card (printed on recycled card) with an original contemporary photographic design, coupled with an original piece of music they can play. Each card comes cellophane-wrapped with the inside left blank on one side for your message. Ideal for all occasions – birthdays, anniversaries, congratulations, weddings, good luck messages and many more. Each card is great value at just £3.50 (plus P&P) – where else could you find an original and unique card and gift for under £5 these days! The cards can be ordered only at http://www.davidbartonmusic.co.uk/services/musical-cards-and-gifts
