Links to sites on music topics

The links here are mostly taken from "Play It Again: Discover Your Musical Abilities" by Chris Horrie (Collins 2007), which I borrowed from the Hastings Library. Links from other sources I have marked ~. I'm thinking of taking up music again, probably an electronic keyboard of some sort.
