Research shows that the vast majority of Music Thing readers are 22 year-old rock stars, glancing at their powerbooks as 17 year-old groupies feed them ice cream. However, it's come to my attention that a tiny minority of readers are 30-something men who used to play in a band, but now read Music Thing while their girlfriends are putting the kids to bed. So, to cater for this tiny minority, I'm planning a special about kids and music - stories about dribble-proof vintage synths, which sequencer is easiest for a 3 year-old to master, and the best 1/2 size guitar to buy. Like this story about a 4 year-old who likes Autechre, or this producer who samples her daughter. If you have stories or tips, please mail them in.
