So this is a new venture for you! Where are you going to start? What should you do about lessons? Where should you buy a guitar? There are so many questions to ask, but where are the answers? There are many places to get your answers, a music shop, a music studio, a friend or even online.
Violins come in a range of prices. You can buy an expensive instrument if you wish but the great thing is you don’t need to. There are many violins that are perfectly acceptable at affordable prices. The sound will be just fine and better yet, you can get all the practice you need and will be able to build your skills, no matter what the price. There are extremely expensive violins available, usually bought by professionals and virtuosos. A lot of care, which takes a long time, goes into making the higher priced instruments and this is why the prices can be so high.
Looking for hip hop instrumentalsis easy and you can easily pick one from the music stores. You can go to the nearest music instrument store and buy beats from there. Else, you can go online too and make your decision. There are a lot of websites that can fulfill your requirement and they offer these beats at very competent prices. So once you have paid for the beat it is all yours and you can share it too. These beats can do a lot for you as soon as they are yours. You can easily rap on them as they are in the format of a rap song or you can gift them to your rapper friend too.

If you want a new electric organ such as the Roland Atelier, its going to cost you anything up to twenty thousand pounds. Having said that, the organ market is all but dead in the UK, so there is a thriving second hand market, and plenty of bargains to be had. If you want an electric keyboard then you can buy one of these, brand new with the latest technology for between two and three thousand pounds. If you do go down the keyboard path then I would recommend you buy an arranger keyboard such as the Yamaha Tyros, Ketron SD5, Roland G70 or the Korg PA 800. Although there is some operational learning with these keyboards, they are designed so you can start playing the thing as soon as you take it out of the box.

Copy your heroes. There are lots of accomplished bands out there so why not try and copy them. These are skilled musicians. Even if it looks like they are just prancing around on stage, the chances are that they have put the practice in and are great at what they do. Try and copy them.
