This Is Buy A Musical Instrument Day!  

Mac Miller

Perhaps you are a musician in need of a new instrument, or If you have been considering taking up a musical instrument, today can be your starting point. The good news is you're never too old to begin playing a musical instrument. Many senior citizens pick up musical instruments as a hobby. They even form senior bands, often playing in public. What a great day to get started!

Now let's P-A-R-T-Y!
