5 books to give the music lover in your life

Young or old, there’s no wrong time to learn how to play music. Whether it’s just a hobby or a budding profession, supporting a loved one’s creative endeavor can be a beautiful thing. If you need a gift for birthdays, the holidays, or just because, these four books are perfect! Focusing on the basics of music, they can help your musician learn outside of their lessons and encourage them to grow their hobby into something they truly enjoy. From rock guitar to jazz essentials, there are tons of books out there that can provide extra knowledge—and a gift like this will show your music lover just how much you support them.

Although books aren’t a perfect gift for everyone, they’re a great way to show your support and encourage your loved one to keep learning and growing. Especially if you know someone who wants to get into music but doesn’t know where to start, any of these books (and so many more!) can help guide them in the right direction—or even show them which instruments and styles they aren’t interested in learning. Lesson books like these are especially great for beginners, but can even make a wonderful gift for an established musician looking to explore a new instrument.
