Pumping music DJs

I help to organise the school formal each year as a year 10 coordinator, so I know how much difference a great DJ can make to getting everyone dancing and to make the party really pump. I'm a funky kind of teacher, but I can't really keep up with the latest music, so I need to head online to make sure I choose a great DJ who has recent reviews from cool cats and funky kittens. This site has some of my research on choosing fun and professional DJs for school formals, so that other formal coordinators can have an easier time of it!

3 Accessories You Shouldn't Forget About When Using Instrument Rental

by Milan Gaillard

Instrument rental is a great way to get your hands on valuable musical instruments. Many schools use this service, and so do a whole host of families and individual adults because the value proposition is just so great. However, it is easy to get excited and only focus on the actual instruments themselves when browsing the website or store. There are quite a few accessories that can make your life a lot easier when playing and caring for these instruments. If you want to be a good caretaker of your instrument here are a few accessories you must think about getting as well.

1. Travelling Case

If you are in any kind of band or musical group that routinely travels quite long distances then you most likely will need a stronger carrying case than the standard one that comes with your instrument. These travelling cases have a more sturdy construction, with thicker outer walls, stronger hinges and locks that will never accidentally bust open due to impact. Instruments are very valuable items and it only takes a few bumps to ruin the sound they produce so don't risk that by using a sub-par case when there are alternatives available.

2. Musical Stools

If you are playing the piano or the drums then chances are you will need a specifically crafted musical stool that gives you a full range of motion without getting in the way. A musical stool is the best option because not only does it provide all the features you need, but it also looks professional. If you are setting up a school band then you might want to hire a few musical stools as well as the instruments, rather than having the pianist and drummer sitting on chairs that are awkward to perform in. 

3. Stands

You can't play the music if you can't read it and a makeshift musical stand can only be put up with for so long. If you are by yourself learning an instrument then you might consider simply outright buying a stand because they are not so expensive on their own, but if you are organising a band for a school or any other kind of group then stands should be part of your instrument rental agreement. Stands last a long time so it is easy to justify their purchase at the end of your rental agreement, which gives you time to save up for that last little cost rather than having to pay thousands at the start.
