Christmas is coming! So as we all begin scrambling for those last minute holiday gifts, our eyes are also turning to those fantastic smaller presents that often get overlooked, but can mean so much to the ones you love!

Every musician and music lover needs new headphones! Whether it be for playing silently on a new digital piano, for when you are out and about, or even just listening to your favourite tracks in your bedroom, you can’t go wrong with a great set of new headphones.
As with many things, when buying headphones, you do very often get what you pay for and of course higher end headphones will deliver some amazing results, however for a great starting point or upgrade to begin with would be the Yamaha HPH-50 delivering powerful sound with stylish yamaha design! We’ve also just written another article to help you choose the perfect headphones for piano practice!
2) A New Piano Style Sustain Pedal
When first learning on a digital piano, many players often struggle with (or soon outgrow) the ‘box’ style sustain pedals that come with many digital pianos. This is especially true for those who play on an acoustic piano during lessons, or those who are ready to learn more complex piano pieces.
If this is the case, then a piano action style sustain pedal might be perfect for you. Pedals such as the Stagg Piano Style Sustain Pedal allow the user to combine the simplicity and portability of a digital piano with the intricate control of an acoustic piano.
This more authentic feel will not only help the musician to feel more comfortable on their piano, but also allow them to add ‘half pedalling’ into their compositions and feel more comfortable when transitioning between practicing at home on a digital and performing on an acoustic.
