Making music at the Museum of Making Music
I grew up playing the piano and violin, as well as singing. Then I discovered The Beatles and rock ‘n’ roll. The rest, as they say, is history.
Music has been such an integral part of my life that whenever I watch sports on television, or when a commecial comes on, I turn the sound off and listen to music.
Recently I discovered the Museum of Making Music right here in the San Diego area at 5790 Armada Drive in Carlsbad. It’s in an area of offices, and it’s in Carlsbad, so seeing a big sign from the freeway, well, it ain’t gonna happen. In fact, there were no signs at all telling us that the Museum of Making Music was right there….. that building!…… right there!……. You have to know the address and simply go to that address. Here’s a map, though:
Following are some pictures from my visit.
Look closely at the piano in the following picture and you can see clues that it just might not be a piano. Instead, it’s a receptionist’s desk.
Throughout the museum there are areas set up with real instruments for anyone to play, including guitar, piano, and, most notably, drums. It’s quite interesting when a young wannabe drummer decides to practice, so to speak…. being nice here.
Lastly, I would be remiss, negligent, and not true to myself if I didn’t include these three pictures:
And is it just coincidence that Elvis Presley is mentioned in the bottom right corner of the last picture? I think not. Elvis Presley died on this date in 1977. It made headline news in my small corner of the world in Texas.
