My son and his friends aspire to make their band known in our community. As a parent, I am supportive of this idea. Instead of spending most of their free time malling or playing computer games, these kids prefer to nurture their skills in singing and playing musical instruments. They want to perform not just to display the talent that they have but also to earn money for their studies. I feel very fortunate for having a son who thinks this way.
I am planning to look for microphone stands at musicians friend for them. The equipments that they have are beaten and in need of replacement. I know for sure that they do not have enough funds to buy new stuff. But their old mic stands are already delaying their rehearsals. If giving them a couple of mic stands can inspire them to work harder for their pursuit, I would not mind spending a portion of my savings for it.
