Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for the musician

Whether a pianist, guitarist or someone who enjoys listening to great sounds, these gifts for musicians will bring a happy note to the holidays.

1. The Otamatone Musical Instrument from Maywa Denki is an easy-to-play electronic musical instrument. Perfect for someone to dabble in an unusual gift idea. Just push on the stem to play a note, slide fingers up and down the stem to change pitch, and give a squeeze to the face for dramatic vibrato. Has three octaves and two volume settings. Practice sheet and three AAA batteries included. Recommended for ages 15 and older. $31.50 for members and $35 for non-members from the Museum of Modern Art.
