One Word September Writing Prompts – Lesson Pros

Dear Writers, we are delighted to see all of you so interested in our September writing prompt challenge. If you are new to this site, let us tell you a little bit about our writing prompts. Those of you who have been here a while can skip down to see our September Challenge.

Each month, we come out with a new list of words to inspire your creative energy. We started January 1st and with it being September 1st, that is 243 new words, not including the 30 new words for this month. If you enjoy this word prompt article and follow us through the rest of the year, we recommend going back and viewing our previous articles. We also have an article titled 365 Writing Prompts that has full-length prompts for those of you who want a bit more structure for writing.

With that being said, we also love when you comment on your thoughts and ideas, as well as any stories, songs, or poems you come up with from these prompts. Now that you have a good idea of what to expect. Let us get started.

September Challenge: It is time to think out of the box. Take a piece that you have written, and rewrite it from five different perspectives. Look at your story or song from a different point of view and write from that position. And then do this for as many viewpoints as you can.

With this challenge in mind, below are the September writing prompts!

One Word July Writing Prompts – Lesson Pros

It is now July, a time to reflect with ease, and what better way to do that than with some writing prompts?

For our July Word Writing Prompts, I urge you to take a look back on your life. Instead of our typically one-word prompts, I encourage you to look at each word from two different lenses. The first lens illustrates how you would respond to this word if it were coming from your past. And the second lens of how you see the world today.

A brief example of this idea using the word tenacious:

  • Past: The world requires tenacity in order to survive it.
  • Present: It was easy to let go because of her unconditional, tenacious love.

Now, I leave it up to you.

Writing Prompts July Lesson Pros

A brief account of my day:

As the minutes tick on and the hours pass by, I find myself getting lost in this concept of time. It passes and I let it. Though when I ask myself, why? Why let this time drift off into the abyss? I find myself asking then, why not? Why not let the time go and fade into my memory? And I am at peace. For the time being at least.

It is interesting to me how each of us goes through phases. A moment ago everything mattered with a vigor that pulled at each ounce of my soul, yet now time passes with ease and grace, unconcerned for any waste. I feel more content and at ease.

I suppose these are my reflections for the beginning of this month.

PRO-TIP

Challenging your mind by looking at words from different perspectives can help you grow as a writer and an individual.

QUESTION OF THE DAY

How have you changed throughout the past few years?

BEST VIOLINS FOR BEGINNERS – HOW TO CHOOSE A VIOLIN?

BEST VIOLINS FOR BEGINNERS – HOW TO CHOOSE A VIOLIN

Hey everyone,
How do you choose the best violin for beginners? We get this question on a regular basis, so it is definitely something we were looking forward to writing about. Most beginners find that they don’t really know where to start when it comes to purchasing their first violin. Here is some starter information on how to choose the best violins for beginners.

VIOLINS COME IN MANY DIFFERENT SIZES

A 4/4 size violin is the largest violin you can get and is considered a full-size violin for adults.  Most adults will use a 4/4 full-size violin. For a child, a good step when in the process of picking out a violin is to go into a violin shop, even if you don’t intend to make a purchase at that time. They will help fit your child to the correct size. Depending on the size of your child’s reach, a fractional size may be the right size.

Here are the different sizes. The smallest is 1/16 (just 9 inches or 23 cm), 1/10, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 7/8, and 4/4 or full size (about 14 inches or 36 cm)

VIOLIN OPTIONS

I’ll give you 3 levels of violins that would be appropriate to get you started in 3 different price ranges.

OPTION #1

The first is the least expensive by far out of the three. This will have an upgrade of wood quality over the standard fair of cheap student china violins. It will sound a little better, play a little easier, and stay a little better in tune over most of your inexpensive under $100 violins.

Size 4/4 (Full Size), Black Solid Wood – Flamed, 1-Piece Violins w/Case, Tuner, Shoulder Rest, Bow, Rosin, Bridge & Strings – Adult, Kids

This comes in at under $200 and would be an upgrade over your basic model.

OPTION #2

The second one is quite a step up in quality, and in price. It’s hand varnished, and features an Engelman Spruce top, and is Hand Varnished. The less expensive Made in China violins will be lacquer finish, lacquer finish is the same type of finish that might use on a dining room table. It’s hard and durable but doesn’t allow the violin to vibrate as much as it needs too, to sound good. This is why cheap Chinese violins sound so tinny. The Engelman Spruce Top is also a huge upgrade in the quality of wood, upgrading the warmth of the tone coming out of the violin. This violin comes in at just under $900.

Violin 4/4 Full Size with Open Clear Tone with Dominant Strings, Case, Bow, Rosin, and Shoulder Rest

OPTION #3

The third opinion is the best option, as the grade of wood gets higher yet to Apline Italian Spruce. What this means is that they’ve taken wood from a pine tree that only grows at a certain elevation, on the mountainside. In this environment, the wood produces the best sound that comes from these types of woods typically. This is also the next step up in craftsmanship as well, as the wood is “graduated”.

What this means is that the luthier spent the time to “tonally” carve the top, bottom, and sides so that the violin will have a complex depth of tone, and moreover, sound even as you make your way through the strings. Also, this violin is hand varnished.

When you pair the features of high-quality wood, high-quality craftsmanship, and high-quality finish, you’ll have a louder instrument that responds to your playing, allowing you the play better faster.

Old Spruce  4/4 Full-Size Violin

This is around $1,500 and you have the option of getting a one-piece back violin for around $2,000. However, not necessary, unless you would like to have only one glued joint and an upgrade in sound quality.

QUESTION OF THE DAY

What was the thing that happened to get you interested in learning to play the violin?

PRO TIP 

Tuning Pegs Slipping – Are you are having trouble keeping your tuning pegs from slipping once you get your instrument?  To alleviate this problem you can use peg drops or peg paste to stop this from happening. When you get violin tuning pegs that are made out of ebony, they will typically stay in tune a little better than the sandalwood tuners made for the very cheap violins.

OTHER ARTICLES YOU MAY ENJOY

Hopefully, this article on how to choose the best violins for beginners has been helpful. We really hope this helps depict what’s available in the marketplace for students and gives you some background data on why they are priced as they are. This information should help you make a well-informed decision when you pick out your first or next violin. Every one of these violins is available in fractional sizes as well. It’s just important to remember to get fitted so you have the correct size.

Wishing you the best!

BUDGET UNDER $100 RECOMMENDATION

This violin will do the trick if your budget is under $100. If you can squeeze a little bit more out of your budget go with Option #1 above – Wood Violin – 4/4 Size

 

 

One Word May Writing Prompts – Lesson Pros

Hello beautiful people,
I am pleased to see all of you back for our monthly writing prompts and welcome everyone who is new to our site.
For the month of May, we will be celebrating the rebirth and growth of our inner selves. With this, I have a short writing exercise to help us look inwards.
There are three questions I want you to ask yourself.
First, how are you feeling right now? Really think about this and write down everything you are currently feeling and experiencing in your life.
Second, I want you to ask yourself, how do you want to be feeling at this very moment? Let all of it spill out. This can be written in any way you feel most comfortable. Write a list, sentences, a song, whatever allows you to express how you want to feel.
And third, what are three steps you can take today to close the gap between how you are feeling and how you want to feel?
This exercise has been extremely helpful for me, and I hope you all have a good experience in doing this.
Now, let’s take a look at our spring one-word writing prompts.

One Word April Writing Prompts – Lesson Pros

Hello Beautiful People,

It is good to see you all for our Monthly One Word Writing Prompts! This process has been extremely rewarding, and we are excited to be able to share this with all of you.

For April, we have a special challenge. We want you to connect or share your experience with others. With COVID-19 having such an impact on everyday life, it can be difficult to build and develop meaningful connections with other individuals, so we encourage you to reach out to someone. You can do this via social media, messages, video chat, a letter, or in-person, whatever you are most comfortable with.

First, you can start by sharing one of your writing prompts and tell them how writing has affected your life. For your second step, you can talk about your writing.

If you are not quite ready to talk about your writing yet, we still advocate sharing your experience and maybe inviting a friend to also start writing. It is often a great bonding experience and can manifest a new type of relationship that goes beyond the small talk of everyday life. Which can be quite refreshing.

With that, here are the April One Word Writing Prompts!

Below there are 31 words prompts for each day of March. So let’s get writing!

Word Writing Prompts - Lesson Pros

Along with the prompt challenge, we are challenging you to something new. Using one of the words above, incorporate elements that are abstract or alter the reality of your everyday life.

Here is a short example of this concept.

He stands on a mountainous plateau. The vibrant orange grass leaps along the rock’s surface playfully. He has no recollection of how he got here, though he feels a sense of serendipity.

It doesn’t take long until the wind notices him. Excited to meet a new friend, the wind, in a mad dash, crash into the man on the plateau.

Aggressively the wind licks his exposed skin, throwing him weightlessly through the air. The affection is accepted and welcomed, as there is newfound attention being paid to his exposed skin.

Though it escalates quickly, in a dancing frenzy, the wind pulls on his hands as if wanting to show its toy the whole world.

Where my Inspiration Came From

In the passage above, I started thinking about the words turmoil and vivid. With these words in mind, I began to imagine rolling plains, vast forests, and rocky terrains spread out underneath vast vantage point.

With this scene in mind, I began to think of my friend’s dog who I saw earlier that day. Though instead of a dog on the mountain, I feel the wind with its doglike excitement.

An Interpretation

To me, it is interesting to see how our unconsciousness unfold onto a page. Things we may have never recognized are laid bare before our eyes. That is one of the beauties of writing. It allows us to uncover and unlock the mysteries that are folded deep within ourselves.

As for the piece above, the first drafts usually are notoriously atrocious, but that is why it is important to write them. To tell you a secret, that passage is actually my third draft. And still, there are improvements to be made. That is the beauty of writing. We are in a constant state of change, so we are always adapting and becoming something entirely different.

INSPIRATION IDEAS FOR THIS MONTH

  1. A Year of Positive Thinking

  2. A Writer’s Notebook

  3. Light the Dark: Writers on Creativity

  4. Black Lacquer Rollerball Pen

  5. Writer´s Workbook

  6. On Writing Well
  7. The Writing Strategies Book

  8. Writing Tools

  9. Writing Down the Bones

  10. The 30-Day Lyric Writing Challenge

PRO TIP

If you want an idea of what to write about, Anne Lamott, author of Bird by Bird, Almost Everything, and Traveling Mercies, along with other works, tells her students to write about school lunches.

Another suggestion she has is to write what you can see within the confines of a handheld picture frame. This narrows the visual frame while also allowing more detail to be expressed.

PRACTICE HACK TO HELP YOU BECOME A BETTER MUSICIAN FASTER - SHATTER THE 10,000 HOUR RULE

How do you become a better musician faster? How do you learn or accomplish anything faster? Here is a practice hack to help you knock down those practice hours and shatter the 10,000 hour rule!

How many hours does it take to master, or become an expert musician on any given instrument? A good rule of thumb is 10,000 hours, and it’s probably something you’ve heard of before. This was all brought to light by this fantastic book by Malcolm Gladwell that was a bestseller: Outliers: The Story of Success. While the 10,000 hour rule is an easy round number to remember, and a great way to measure your practice, the absoluteness of 10,000 hours of practice can be reduced greatly by learning one small but powerful habit. 

10,000 HOUR RULE

What if I told you, that any musician, could shatter the 10,000 hour rule and bring it down to 7,000 hours, or even 5,000 hours? Once you understand and implement this foundational concept, the results can help you get exponentially better as a musician. By making some small changes to your mental outlook, it can supercharge your learning potential and put you on the fast track to being a better musician, faster. 

FIRST CONCEPT - EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

The first concept I’ll introduce to you is probably the most important thing a musician could possibly learn but is almost never taught by any private instructor, school, or college. Chances are, emotional intelligence has never been a part of any textbook for music, study materials,  or on the syllabus of any college class designed for a music student. 

Emotional Intelligence has nothing to do with how smart you are, but everything to do with how you are able to decide to emotionally react to a musical stimulus when you encounter it. Let me illustrate this concept further so you can break the 10,000 hour rule. 

EXAMPLE OF EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

For this example, there are two people who go to a concert, where their favorite musician is performing. The musician performing, in this case, is the musical stimulus or event that is associated with music. These two people will react quite differently to the concert, and their path as a musician and timeline for success are both altered in vastly different ways moving forward from the event. 

Person A

The first person goes to the concert, and gets totally immersed in the music, the crowd, the setting, and the feeling of the show. They see their favorite musician perform, and are in awe. Person A, lights up with excitement, imagining themselves up on stage, in front of the crowd, thinking to themselves “I want to do that one day”. Inspired by the moment they can’t wait to get home and practice. They will work hard to become the best musician they can be, and even if they don’t achieve the heights of success as the musician they just watched perform, they’ll sure have fun doing it. 

Person B

The second person goes to the concert, and gets totally immersed in the music, the crowd, the setting, and the feeling of the show. Something else creeps into the thought process of person B as they see their favorite  musician play, they think to themselves, “I’ll never be able to play that good. I could play all my life and never even get close to that good, so why even try? I might as well toss my instrument in the trash, I feel so defeated.”

The different emotions from person A and person B to the stimulus of seeing their favorite musician either speeds up the momentum of wanting to learn more or slows down the momentum. This is where understanding the consequences of your emotions during any learning process becomes so important. 

Emotional intelligence is being aware of what’s happening with your emotions as you interact with people and other influences as you move about your day. Once you’re aware of negative emotions arising, take action to shift from negative thoughts to inspiration.

MOVE PAST THE STUMBLING BLOCKS

To help you reduce the 10,000 hour rule, here’s a list of common stumbling blocks every musician can run into.

Feeling Down About Not Progressing Fast Enough

Realizing your own progression is a matter of perspective.

For example, most of the time your musical progression is like seeing your niece or nephew that you only see once a year during the holidays. Wow, they sure are growing up fast! You can see the dramatic changes in their appearance. On the other hand, their parents will certainly have a different perspective as they are around the child all the time and don’t realize how fast they are actually growing and their appearance is changing.

From your perspective, there has been a huge change since you saw the niece or nephew last year. Just like the parents not being able to see how fast their child is growing, it’s hard to see your own progress.

Here is a helpful tip to see your progress. Record yourself playing once every month, and keep it to review later. Once you’ve been playing for a while, you can go back and really hear your progression. This is a huge confidence booster when you hear your progress. 

Criticism From Family, Friends, or Non-Fans

Hearing from family, friends, or non-fans that you’re not good enough can shatter your confidence.

This can be pressure from a spouse to quiet down because they don’t share the same passion as you, or from a parent who just realized the drums are too loud when being used for practice. Let’s say you are a performing musician who has played in front of an audience and you didn’t get the reaction from the crowd that you wanted. Maybe a non-fan yelled out you are terrible! Shift to your emotional intelligence and move on from the negative thought process. 

Every great musician in history started out not knowing how to play their instrument. They played out of tune and made thousands of mistakes before they became accomplished and even after they became famous they still get criticized for everything under the sun. Get thick skin.

If your family, friends, or non-fans aren’t supportive professional musicians or professional music teachers that are aligned with your goals, their opinion simply doesn’t matter. If being a musician is your passion, don’t let the negative comments from wherever they come from get you down. 

The Jam Session

Being in a jam session with someone, that you feel is more accomplished than you. This can go two ways. 

#1 – The Negative Emotion

The negative emotion is feeling not good enough. I’ve seen countless times when jamming around campfires where a musician will put their instrument away and leave a jam because they feel inferior. 

#2 – The Positive Emotion

The positive emotion is feeling inspired to get to the next level. You’re actually in the presence of a great musician, that you can learn a few new tips and tricks to apply to your playing. 

In most cases, the accomplished musician will remember being a beginner and will bend over backward to help another aspiring musician any way they can. Some of the most important lessons I’ve had in my life were those little moments where you catch a riff or chord one of your heroes does and start to incorporate it into your own playing. 

Ask for Questions

Experiencing encouragement and feeling like you fit in with other musicians helps to raise your confidence. If you have enough confidence, get the courage to ask other musicians questions. How did you do that? Can you show me how you did that? Those interactions help the inspired momentum of learning take place, all because you chose to have the right mindset. 

NEGATIVE MINDSET VERSUS POSITIVE MINDSET

How does this relate to the 10,000 hour rule? Use the pictures below to see the growth of a musician over 5 years and 10 thousand hours of practice. 

Inspired Upwards Momentum

First let’s see the positive-minded musician, having the momentum of inspiration behind them. 

Now let’s take a look at the more negative minded musician’s progress, who instead of being inspired, have the negative momentum of doubt, behind them. 

Downward Momentum

GET INSPIRED

Here are some things to help keep you inspired. 

  1. Watching your favorite musicians will get you excited to practice more. 
  2. Set up your practice space with things that inspire you. Posters of your favorite band or musician, have your instrument on a stand ready to play,  make the space shine with your personality with things you like, and make you happy. 
  3. Personalize Your Gear – Get a case, strap, or any accessory that fits your personality. It’s more fun to play music when you’re in your element, so bring some of you to your instrument. 
  4. Be aware of your emotions. If you notice your emotions going the wrong way, make a shift away from negative emotions, and start thinking more positively. The choice is sometimes hard to make, but it’s still a choice, so choose wisely. 
  5. Record yourself playing every month, and review your progress. When you see how fast you’re actually progressing, vs your perception, it gives you the confidence to practice even more.
  6. Decide not to listen to the advice of people who aren’t professionals or teachers. It’s rare that you’ll find someone who understands your goals and desires who isn’t a teacher or a professional. The opinions of people who aren’t looking out for your best interest should be discarded like yesterday’s trash because it’s just about as useful. 
  7. Make small short-term goals, and celebrate the successes you have instead of belaboring the tough times. The more you celebrate even the smallest successes, the better mindset you start to build. Remember, a great mindset is your momentum behind all successful ventures, and being a musician is no different.

MASTER YOUR MIND TO MASTER YOUR INSTRUMENT

A great mindset is a habit, so start your new habit of emotional intelligence today, one step at a time. While age, genetics, background, previous experience, and economic status are big factors in how fast a musician progresses, none are more important than understanding your emotional intelligence and mastering it along with your instrument. 

As you can see, the mindset of a student can massively change the outcome of a student’s growth in their field. This works for musicians and all other disciplines of life. 

QUESTION OF THE DAY

Have you ever logged your practice hours? If so, how many have you logged?

PRO TIP 

Master your mind to master your instrument

  • What do you want to do differently this month?

If you have comments or want to share some of what you came up with for your writing prompts, we would love to hear them.

Below are all of the words for the month of February, with the 29th falling on a leap year or just a bonus word for the month!

Using a few of the words from last month, I want to share some popular quotes. I find that it can be helpful to look at other perspectives to see how words can be interpreted differently.

CURIOSITY

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day.
— Albert Einstein

“The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.”
— T.H. White (The Once and Future King (The Once and Future King, #1-4)

COLOR

“You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.”
— Jennifer Niven (All the Bright Places)

“That’s always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people want to be around someone because they’re pretty. It’s like picking your breakfast cereals based on color instead of taste.”
— John Green (Paper Towns)

FRAGILE

“I suppose I have found it easier to identify with the characters who verge upon hysteria, who were frightened of life, who were desperate to reach out to another person. But these seemingly fragile people are the strong people really.”
― Tennessee Williams

“People die all the time. Life is a lot more fragile than we think. So you should treat others in a way that leaves no regrets. Fairly, and if possible, sincerely. It’s too easy not to make the effort, then weep and wring your hands after the person dies.”
― Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance

RISK

“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.”
— Louise Erdrich (The Painted Drum)

“It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it.”
— Maurice Switzer (Mrs. Goose, Her Book (Classic Reprint)

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT

If you enjoyed this article, you can look for our next One Word Writing Prompt article that will come out on March 1st. Please be sure to like, comment, or share this article, we love your support and appreciate you going on this journey with us.

PRO TIP

If you cannot find time to write, read.

Look at the signs you see in a day while driving, the news headings, files that come up while you are working, posts on social media sites. Anything you see, read it. This reminds me of a quote by William Faulkner, “Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out.

The more you read, the more you can experience, and the better you will get at writing.

This brings me to another quote by Dr. Seuss, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

What’s in Your Instrument Case? Every Musician Should Have These Essential Things in Their Instrument Case

by Lesson Pros

What’s in your instrument case? Hey all, in this article, you will hear about the essential things to include in your guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, violin, or fiddle instrument case. Every musician should have these things in their instrument case. 

Whether you are a performer, have just started lessons, or a seasoned instrumentalist, first things first, you need a case for your musical instrument.

A case helps to keep your instrument safe when you are not using it.  If you don’t have a case you may consider getting one.

A good case consists of a case that is sturdy and one that has several compartments or pouches where you can keep these items. If you show up to a gig without a strap or your favorite picks it can throw off the whole show.

Some musicians value the items in the case just as much as you do the instrument in the case. Here is a list of the things which you may or may not want in your case. What’s in your instrument case?

#1 SPARE PICKS

Throw a couple extra picks in your case. Picks are an easy thing to lose. Trust us, we have lost plenty. It can turn into a bad day when you lose your Blue Chip picks. I have lost two of these bad boys. At $45 a pop per pick that is a big ouch, but it is good to have some spare picks. There is certainly no need to spend $45 on a pick, but it is a great idea to try out different picks to see which one is easiest to play with and which ones make your instrument sound great.

Honestly, you can just bring your instrument into a music shop and try out different picks. This is a very fun experience and each pick will sound totally different on your instrument. 

Have some fun experimenting with different picks and keep a few extras in your case. If you don’t want to bring your instrument into a music shop or there isn’t a music shop near you. Here are a few sample Variety Pick Pack, 24 Pack, or more variety of pick packs.

Now if you are a violinist or fiddle player make sure you have your bow. Chuck recommends this Carbon Fiber Violin Bow 4/4.

#2 A TUNER

With cell phones today you can download a tuner app on your phone. However, if your phone dies, which we have had happened during a few of our shows, it is always good to have a spare tuner in your case. We like the clip-on tuners. They clip right onto the headstock of your instrument and are easy to read. One suggestion would be to get one that has a backlight so you can see it when it is dark.
Clip-on Tuner

#3 STRAP

Double check your case to make sure you have your strap. Also, our suggestion is to have a spare strap which may come off as a surprise, however, Chuck had one break during a show so he had to hold his guitar with his right arm while standing. An extra strap is a good idea. 

There are times you might need to borrow a strap to someone else who forgot theirs. You can be the hero if you have a spare strap to loan to your buddy.

Straps are very inexpensive items so it is a great idea to have a spare. They do take up space in your instrument case, so you have to decided if you want to have a spare or not. You can find hundreds of straps to choose from online.

We are big fans of Levy’s Straps:
Guitar Straps
Mandolin Straps
Banjo Straps
Bass Straps

#4 PENCILS/PENS/SHARPIES

It may seem odd to carry pencils and/or pens. Packing these items in your gig bag means you are more than ready for making a last-minute setlist or jotting down notes at your music lesson. 

A black sharpie pen is great for signing autographs for your biggest fans at your next show. Ohhhh, here’s a good one, when the sound man forgets his pens or pencils but needs to write on the masking tape which channel belongs to which musician, a sharpie comes in handy.

#5 CAPO

Remember your capo and it may sound like a silly idea to have a spare but if you happen to lose your capo you have the backup capo. This is totally something I would do and have done. I seem to lose things. Soon you will realize that a spare capo is a good idea. 

Apart from easing your mind on knowing you have a spare, you could help someone else in need just in case they lose or forget theirs. Bonus!!!

Kyser Guitar Capo is what we recommend for our students or this seems to be a very popular capo these days because it will hold your picks too.  Both these capos will work for mandolins and ukuleles too.

Banjo and Mandolin Capo

Violinists and fiddle players don’t use capos however I bet sometimes they wish they could put a capo on especially playing in Ab or Bb. hahaha. When I recorded my first album our fiddle player wished he had a capo for a song I sang in Ab. The musician ended up drop tuning his fiddle to do the song.

Banjo Case Lesson Pros

#6 HUMIDIFIER

A humidifier is especially a good idea if you live in areas where the air gets really dry. 

You can easily make one with a plastic travel soapbox and a sponge. You can pick up both these items at a dollar store. When you get home drill some holes in the top of the soapbox and cut the sponge in half. Then wet the sponge and slightly ring out the excess water. Place this in your case and dampen the sponge as needed.

If you don’t want to go to the trouble of making a soapbox humidifier you can find them online. Here are some examples:
Guitar or Banjo Humidifier
Mandolin, Violin or Fiddle Humidifier 
Upright Bass Humidifier 

#7 EXTRA STRINGS

It is always a great idea to have a couple of extra sets of strings. 
Here are the strings we use on our instruments: 
Chuck’s Acoustic Guitar Strings
Sandi’s Acoustic Guitar Strings
Electric Guitar Strings
Mandolin Strings
Violin/Fiddle 4/4 Strings
Banjo Strings
Upright Bass Strings
Electric Bass Strings

#8 STRING WINDER /  PICKERS PAL

A string winder/pickers pal is a good idea in case you are out and about and need to change your strings or if you break one. 
String Winder, Cutter Tool

#9 FINGERNAIL FILE OR CLIPPER

As instrumentalists, our fingernails can grow too long which makes it difficult to play our instruments. It is handy to keep a fingernail file or fingernail clipper in your case.

#10 METRONOME

Again, if you have a cell phone, you can download a metronome from your app store. If you don’t have a smartphone, a small metronome is a great idea, especially if you are going to practice alone or with your band. 

A metronome helps keep you in time. Most musicians waver at least a little in their timing so it is helpful to have a metronome to keep you on track.
Windup Metronome

Ukulele With Case - Lesson Pros

A FEW OTHER THINGS TO CONSIDER

INSTRUMENT CABLES

If you are a performer and are planning on plugging in have a couple of extra instrument cables in your case. We’ve had many cables go bad over the years and luckily we always had a spare.

PATCH CABLES

A patch cable is a cable that is typically used to connect pedals together. If you have some pedals that you string together be sure to have a couple of these also.

VIOLIN / FIDDLE PLAYER ESSENTIALS

For a violinist or fiddle player, it is essential to have a shoulder rest. A Kun Shoulder Rest is what Chuck uses when he plays. 

A chin rest is handy and will make playing your instrument way more comfortable. Most violins and fiddles come with a chin rest, but just in case yours doesn’t have one it is a good idea to get one. 

Rosin for rosining up your bow and yes of course the bow which we talked about above.

BATTERIES

Batteries are needed for the following items: Pickups, Tuners & Pedals, Wireless Microphones, In-Ear Monitors, etc.

SCREWDRIVER

These may come in handy if you are in need of making some on the fly adjustments to your instruments.

BREATH MINTS, VITAMINS, AND/OR CHEWING GUM

It is for sure a great idea to have some breath mints, especially if you just did a show and have to go greet a bunch of raving fans.

GOOD LUCK CHARM

Some musicians like to have a good luck charm, whether it is a bracelet or keychain hanging from your instrument case handle. Maybe it is something you hang on your microphone stand like a scarf. 

It could be a special bummer sticker or a family heirloom that you keep in the compartment of your case. Not everybody has one but it is something to think about. 

RAG OR CLOTH

It’s a good idea to have a cloth or rag of some sort in your instrument case. This is very helpful for wiping the sweat off your instrument. It can also come in handy for wiping the sweat off your face or neck when you are on stage and the lights are extra hot. Trust me we have played many shows baking in the sun or under really hot lights.

COMB, TOOTHBRUSH AND MAKEUP KIT

You may want to get yourself fancied up, so having a comb, toothbrush, and/or makeup kit will help you look and feel your best.

 

Pile of Money - Lesson Pros

COINS AND CAR KEYS

One of the reasons I like to have pockets in my case is that I need a place to put my car keys.

Coins for vending machines if you need to get some food at a gig. Sometimes the car is too far to go back and get money so it’s a good idea to have a few extra dollars in your case. 

Sometimes we will use a few coins or dollars as seed money when we were busking. It’s always a good idea to put a few dollars in your case to let people know you are busking. We typically would collect more money busking if we put a few higher bills in the case to get it started, 1-$20 dollar bill, 1 – $5 dollar bill, a few $1 bill. Just a suggestion.

BUSINESS CARDS

If you are wanting to do music as a business always have business cards in your case. This way when someone comes up and asks you to do a gig after they’ve seen you play you look professional and are ready to book your next gig. 

WRAP UP

What’s in your instrument case? Never leave your house with an empty instrument case.  By following these essential things to include in your guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, violin, or fiddle instrument case you’ll be the most prepared musician out there.

QUESTION OF THE DAY

What other things have you found helpful to have in your instrument case?

PRO TIP 

Making a checklist and adding it to your case of all the things you need before you leave the house is a great idea. This way you can quickly glance over the list and see if you have everything you need.

ONE WORD JANUARY WRITING PROMPTS – Lesson Pros

Dear Readers,

Writing is something that we have grown to love deeply over the past few years. We worked on our post 365 Writing Prompt Ideas and became captivated with the need to share our passion for writing with all of you. This led us to create one word writing prompts for each month of the year.

And so it begins. Welcome to January.

Winter Snow Writing Prompts Lesson Pros January

APPROACH

To start, these words can be used in various ways writing songs, stories, poems, scripts, comics, speeches, journals, whatever your heart desires.

Now, with that being said, let’s take a look at our first word. The word for today is postcard. Start writing the first things that come to your mind when you think of the word postcard.

If you are struggling with this, that is okay. We really want you to try to come up with something, even if it is just one sentence.

EXAMPLE WORD – SECURE

Using a word in an opening line.

To give you an example. We’re going to write a sentence using the word secure.

  • “Is the package secure?”
  • Each of them had secured their harnesses, but still, her throat tightened and her stomach dropped as the plane door began to open.
  • The security / made him feel at ease / in the warmth of home.
  • He felt secure, but still unsure because this whole plan felt premature.
What the word sparked in my mind.

Still using secure, I am now going to show you some examples of other routes you can take with your words.

  • The snow is floating softly, twinkling as the sun rises from a peaceful night’s rest. Warm tea fills my stomach as I sit watching the snowfall. Today I have no responsibilities. I am secure in where I am in my life, and I am happy. Content, I take another sip of tea.
  • “Checks are in.” A coworker howlers across the office floor. I have to make a conscious effort not to wring my hands together, a tick I picked up somewhere along the way. I never noticed it until my mother continued to bring it up whenever we were together. Now, I can hear her scolding voice in my head, telling me to cut it out. Still, my body is tense waiting to see this month’s check.

There are of course many other ways to use this word. These are just a few examples to get your mind going if you are struggling to find a direction to go in.

YOUR TURN

The time has come for you to have some fun with the word. There are no rules here; write when and what you can. We encourage you to use writing as a way to take time for yourself every day. We want this to be a positive experience that pushes you to think more creatively.

PRO TIP

Work towards finding time every day to write. With January being the coldest month in the Northern Hemisphere, it is a great time to hunker down and get cozy. Writing daily has been shown to help reduce stress, while also creating a positive habit that can be applied to many aspects of life. If writing daily is too much, try weekly or monthly. Each month we will be coming out will a new list of word prompts, so pick a word that resonates most with you.

QUESTION OF THE DAY

What word prompt did you find the easiest to write about this month?
