TakeLessons Shares How to Turn Lunch Into An Orchestra TakeLessons, the nation's fastest growing music lessons provider, shares the creative genius of Vienna's Vegetable Orchestra. San Diego, CA (I- Newswire) January 06, 2012 - CNN reported this week that for the first time in history, digital music sales officially surpassed physical sales in 2011. Anyone surprised? The role of technology in the music industry has been continually expanding, and it seems like the trends been heading in that direction for some time. Even for music fans who prefer to purchase the physical CD, it's hard to ignore the growing market of music apps and music sharing websites - not to mention artists like Radiohead and others who jumped on the digital download bandwagon. For those on technology overload, however, maybe it's time to slow down a bit. Head to the local Farmer's Market, pick up a few vegetables, and turn those vegetables into an orchestra. TakeLessons (http://, the nation's fastest growing music lessons provider, entertained this idea by sharing a video of Vienna's Vegetable Orchestra with blog readers this week. The video shows the Vegetable Orchestra shopping around the market and then drilling and carving various vegetables to create their instruments - carrots become recorders, zucchinis become trumpets, and cucumbers transform into saxophones. According to their website, past instruments have included carrot, leek, celery root, artichoke, dried pumpkin, and onion skin. If you're looking for a saxophone, their "cucumberphone" fills the part, consisting of a hollowed- out cucumber, a red bell pepper on one end, and a carrot forming the reed. Since each instrument only lasts one day, the musicians gather before each performance to prepare their masterpieces. As an added bonus, the audience gets a bowl of fresh vegetable soup after each concert. By sharing the video with blog readers, TakeLessons hopes to continue engaging current students and help with any musical goals they may have.
