Music Gear Reviews, Articles & Lessons, Music News

In recent years, technological developments have made the musical instruments lighter and more affordable, although the professional ones do tend to be expensive. Also, electronic instruments are becoming more popular, because of their affordability, ease of use, and their ability to integrate with the digital world, which helps the users to explore several possibilities.

However, the importance of acoustic instruments still remains intact, with professional musicians continuing to use top-of-the line acoustic musical instruments for performances and recordings. Most schools continue to use acoustic music/band instruments to introduce children to music.

Its also a great time to create and record your own music. Wannabe composers can build their own home studio without having to burn a big hole in their pockets, and can produce top notch music right from the comfort of their own homes (obviously it requires lot of experience to use the various recording gear to create great music).
