National Buy a Musical Instrument Day is a celebration of music of all kinds. If you’ve ever considered purchasing or learning to play an instrument this day might just be the motivation you need. A musical instrument can make anyone’s life a tad more interesting. Learning to play music focuses one’s mind and helps them channel any negative energy they have into something beautiful. It is a great way to spend your extra time. Rather than sitting in front of the tv, you can better your musical skills!
There is some speculation that this holiday was originally in honor of Meredith Wilson- the writer and composer of ‘The Music Man’ though there seems to be no evidence to support this claim. Because of the lack of evidence, the true origins of this holiday are still unknown.
