Just like a monument, music is all about telling a story. So when the time comes to express your loved one’s passion for music in a permanent memorial, where do you begin?
Here are a few ideas to help you get started:
Incorporating clip art designs into a standard-shaped memorial is the easiest way to incorporate musical themes into a headstone.
Choosing designs that compliment the shape of the stone can help turn a good design into a great one.
Getting creative is helpful too, like using a musical note in place of a hyphen between the dates can add a nice finishing touch.
Taking creativity to the next level, the headstone can actually be made in the shape of a musical instrument!
This piano -shaped memorial features white granite keys inserted into the top to add an impressive level of authenticity.
Similar ideas can be incorporated for the musical instrument of your choice. From guitars – to drums – and everything in between, a skilled memorialist can work with you to create something truly unique and special.
Sometimes a passion for music is important, but not necessarily the focal point on a headstone. Adding subtle touches to the design can help tell that story without overwhelming the memorial.
The “Fuchs” memorial is a great example of this. An etched lake scene and wedding rings were the most important themes, but the family also wanted to incorporate their parents’ respective hobbies. Etched piano keys on the top of the base add the finishing touch on a highly-personalized tribute.
Whatever your taste and budget, we can help ensure that your loved one’s headstone is in ‘tune’ with your needs.
