I think the happiest moment for a musician like myself is to be in  front of people performing. To have the opportunity to do this you will need to get your name and music out there. The best way to do this is through social networking.   My favorite place to promote my music is MySpace and Facebook. They are two very powerful social networking sites at the moment. YouTube is great as well. Don’t forget to check the article below if you want to learn how to promote your Lao Band.

I think we spend too much money on getting a Lao keyboard instrument.  An average people spend anywhere from $700-$1000  on it just because it’s their passion. Here is the deal, if you want a keyboard and you are just using it to entertain your friends at home.I would suggest going for an older model because you will save so much money.

The first thing I would do is go on Ebay and do a search for the keyboard by typing in the name for example “Yamaha PSR 520″ you will be amazed at the price.  And learn how to load the styles yourself.  This will save you even more. I got my first Yamaha from Ebay for $100 and it was great!

Good luck in finding your next keyboard!
