Got a musical Mum but don't know what to get her for Mother's Day? We've got some ideas...
Mother's Day in the UK is fast approaching! You have until 21 March to find that perfect gift. We've found 10 ideal gifts that we know she would LOVE, especially if she is a music lover.
1. 6 issues of Pianist for £20
Whether Mum plays for fun in her spare time or wants to get back to playing after a long time out, this might be the perfect little gift for her.
A whole year full of masterclasses from top piano teachers, over 240 pages of sheet music, interviews with the top pianists in the game, and so much more.
2. Igor Levit's Complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas album

Pianist 112 cover star Igor Levit performs ALL 32 Beethoven Sonatas in this release. He was originally challenged to learn all 32 back in 2010 by Michael Becker, the Intendant of the Tonhalle in Düsseldorf.
He intended to learn them all in one year...but it wasn't meant to be! He eventually completed all 32 in 2015, before recording them in 2019.
3. Benjamin Grosvenor Chopin Piano Concertos new album
Six glorious Chopin Piano Concertos all wrapped up into one glorious album by the former BBC Young Musician of the Year.
4. Musical note necklace
We think this is rather cute! Perfect if your Mum is, say, a piano teacher.
There are a lot of 'tacky' piano-themed gifts out there at the moment, but this is one of the more elegant ones.
5. Beethoven around the world
This exciting book of sheet music features nine pieces, suitable for Grade 5-7 pianists. It's a lovely book of re-arranged Beethoven music in the style of Tango music, Samba music, Oriental music, and many other music cultures around the world.
6. 20 best piano books for all levels
From Lang Lang's Piano Book, to The Lion King, to Harry Potter.
There is something for every type of mood and level in our list.
Take a look.
7. Yamaha HPH-50 headphones
Got a digital piano? Gift Mum a pair of these wonderful Yamaha headphones.
If you find that she often plays too loud, it's a win-win for both of you!
8. 'Some people have lives, some people have music' travel mug
For all those Mums who always seem to have a cuppa in their hand.
9. Beethoven Piano Sonatas in G major, D minor and E flat major
Now this is a special gift; an Urtext edition of 3 Beethoven Sonatas. Urtext editions aim to reproduce the original intention of the composer as exactly as possible. These editions are perhaps the closest you will ever get to playing like Beethoven.
10. Personalised soundwave
Get any song in the world printed as a personalised soundwave. It’s high quality, printed on a silk background. This is a beautifully personal gift and may just get the tears flowing. We love it!
