Works For Me – Music to Go

I have wanted to participate in Work for Me Wednesday for a good while. This is the day!

Have you always wanted to be able to play a musical instrument and just don’t know how? I’ve got the instrument for you.

I love music. As I’ve stated before, I breathe music.

My dad was a musician and when we started kindergarten, it was time for us to begin to learn an instrument. I chose the piano and took formal lessons for 13 years. The problem with the piano is it’s not mobile. I taught children’s church for years and always enjoyed the music portion, but found that when I sat down behind the piano, I lost their attention. So I began the search for an instrument that was mobile and could be learned easily.

I am on now on my second OmniChord and it is so much fun. (I wore the first one out.) Children and adults alike are fascinated by it. I describe it as an electronic autoharp. I currently use it when I go see my sweet grandmother.

My best friend did not ever learn any instrument but really loved my omnichord . I used it to lead praise and worship in a small group Bible Study we did at her house. She bought one and learned to play it!

This instrument is not expensive and I think you might possibly love it as much as I do. Let me know if you have any questions about it. Be blessed!
