Music-Related Activities To Keep You Sane While In Quarantine

Over the past several weeks, social activity has ground to a standstill due to the spread of the coronavirus. We know it hasn’t been easy, and after several weeks boredom starts to creep in. So, to keep you sane and entertained during these strange times, here’s a list of music-related activities to explore.

— April 14th, 2020

1. Learn An Instrument

You love live music, right? Well, how about learning to create it yourself? Learning an instrument can help you keep your mind at ease while also being productive. 

Plus, we are offering online classes in all major instruments through Skype, Zoom, or whatever platform you feel more comfortable using. 

2. Write A Song

The songwriting process can be highly therapeutic. Plus, it can also help you develop your playing ability and knowledge of your instrument. 

You probably won’t create the most complex arrangements with your first composition. Still, the feeling of creating out a new song—a song of your own—is sure to lift the spirits!  

And if you are up for it, you can even submit your song as part of our Spring Songwriting Challenge. 

3. Clean And Restring Your Guitar

You’re overdue. You know you are! So, do yourself a favor and show your guitar some love. By doing so, you will make sure it is ready to sound out your new tune.

4. Jam With Friends…Virtually!

So, now you’ve learned an instrument. You’ve also written a song and made sure your instrument is in pristine shape. Since you can’t be within six feet of others, it’s time for a virtual jam session! 

Text your friends and organize a virtual jam session over Zoom or Skype. It will not only be fun and entertaining, but it will also help you feel closer to those you haven’t seen in a while. 

5. Discover New Music

Remember all of those friend’s music suggestions that you ignored? Now is the perfect time to start listening. Apps like Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Bandcamp, and SoundCloud can show you the music you never knew existed.

6. Watch Music Documentaries

Music documentaries are an excellent way to pass the time during a quarantine. Sometimes, listening to music is not enough. Hence, learning about the lives of artists, the industry’s history, or any other topic of interest can be a cool way to connect to music in a more meaningful way. Luckily, popular streaming sites like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video, and even Youtube offer a wide range of options.

I love how Marcos lets me learn so many songs, not just one! I like how he gives me compliments. It’s really fun when Marcos does the bass clef with the left hand and I get to make up my own song that goes with it for a warm up. It’s fun because I get to make up my own songs. I love the sound of the piano!

I really like that we get to pick what songs we want to learn in Marcos’s guitar class. I also love that he is compassionate and lets us progress at our own pace. Marcos knows EVERYTHING about instruments, and I’m glad he can share some of it with me. I’m glad that I get to learn how to read, write, and play music for the guitar. It is a lot of fun when Marcos and I play the guitar together!

I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!

Both of my children love their music lessons with Marcos. They look forward to their music lessons each week and come home eager to practice their new pieces. I especially love that he teaches them to compose their own pieces and inspires their musical creativity. Marcos is always positive and encouraging with my children, and he has a knack for bringing out their best. I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!
