I love attending the local performances that are int he neighborhood and its great that the kids are into it and finding what they love in the form of instruments. We went to a local high school where they are putting on a show soon and we got to speak to various members there. I also got to poke around and noticed a nice sized sound mix thing that made music in my ears. I asked and was told its korg monotron at guitar center and I had to check it out and do you see how much that is? So affordable! The sound that came out of that and our friend plays the guitar and enjoyed it. Said don't let the size fool you, its a must for any musical enthusiast.
