The price range varies from a dollar or two to several dollars. Many of the ideas are less than $5, so these gifts ideas are very affordable, even for a large studio or music class!

The ideas range from music-themed book bags, to baked goodies, to composer bobble heads (awesome, right? – I’m totally going to get some of those for my own studio!). I’m so excited to share the list with you!
