I have been privileged to be so acquainted with such "nerds." And no, unfortunately, I am not qualified to be an "honorable music nerd." I do not have manuscripts wallpapered on my bathroom wall with Bach and Beethoven trash cans and soap dispensers. I don't possess every music gadget attainable, nor do I aim to. Yes, I do have a full statue of Beethoven and several of the great composers' busts. I also own quite a library of sheet music that is either on my shelf or stored away in an organized fashion. So we've all met these nerds at some point in time or another. Yes, the collection was impressive and somewhat amazing. If we're not careful we catch ourselves critically wondering, "Does this person even know what a Sonata is, or what rondo form is? Do they know who this bust is of? Or do they know that this symbol is called the Treble Clef?" haha I've even had friends to decorate their bathroom with really old pages of sheet music that had that exotic vintage yellowing. I was alarmed she stapled these sacred pieces of ancient paper up on her bathroom walls where steam from the shower might curl the edges or guests might damage the manuscripts with hairspray and other toiletries... not to mention the overpowering need to sing or tap if the only thing you can read in the bathroom is... MUSIC. Quite frankly, after reliving my utter aghast of her abuse of these treasures, I can't see decorating an entire room with music notes... unless its a studio or office, a space totally designed for it... not a bathroom. Needless to say, she comes by the title, "music nerd" honestly... yet she doesn't (or didn't) have a stitch of theory or music history under her belt.
So here's an appeal to all of the non nerds... LOLOL. Have you ever wanted to host that perfect choir party, or host a reception after your child's recital and you had no idea where to go to get those really awesome music supplies? At pianosupplies.com, you can purchase plates, napkins, cups, note confetti and much more... all in the musical theme.
Yes its really great. Not only do they have party supplies, they also have great door prizes such as clocks with the circle of fifths that takes the place of the numbers.
If you need a little something to spice up the car you're driving to this sit down gala, you're in luck. They have car mats.
