We’ve had great fun seeing the festive display photos you’ve sent us, and exploring some of your seasonal social media and web content. This morning we’re pleased to bring you a sample of some of the great ideas MIA members have put into action.
Brian sent us photos of his magical displays at the Ackerman Music Brighton store, with a perfect focus on accessories and sheet music – great gifts for friends and family to open on the big day, without breaking the bank.
A lot has happened at Kennys Music this year, with a change in ownership and store refurbishments. The Dundee store staff have gone for a pink Christmas theme for their window display. Meanwhile, and also up in Scotland, Ronnie’s Music has opted for a plethora of products accented by Christmas references, with fairy light trimmings.
The historic grand piano salon at Yamaha Music London looks the epitome of style, classy Christmas adornments enhancing the elegance of the room without distracting from the display of grand pianos.
Forsyth Music Shop has been busy offering free recitals through the course of the year, and rounded off with a festive evening, combining the talents of a solo singer and accompanist with Christmas carol singing in their recently refurbished piano salon, following mulled wine in the sheet music department.
Never ones to rest on their laurels, the MatchMySound team have been busy tweeting daily Christmas music challenges to engage followers.
Digit Music brought its Digit Sounds Advent Calendar back for the Christmas countdown, using Twitter to invite sign-ups to its newsletters in exchange for free loops, one shots and MIDI files throughout December.
There’s plenty happening on MI websites too, for example Andertons getting ‘Christmas Wrapped Up’, GAK sharing their ‘Gear of the Year’ alongside stocking filler ideas, Alfred Music sharing a gift guide, and Schott Music London making sure you know when they’re open.
