A great gift idea that is perfect for any aspiring or veteran musician is education. Give the gift of singing, dancing,or music lessons. The cost of breaking into the music business can be steep and every entertainer knows the benefits of training so ease the pockets of your talented peeps and give them lessons in their favorite speciality.  They will truly thank you.
