I am by NO stretch of the imagination an expert "advice giver", but here's my take on what you wrote:
1. Your domain name should reflect what you're offering on your website. Ex. musicbydamian.com
Nix any ads on internet marketing because your site is about "music" so stick with ads that are relevant to your music. As far as the "video games", if you just want to sell video games, I probably wouldn't do it on your music site because it doesn't fit in with your music theme. You want to be consistent or you will confuse your visitors.
2. The way I see it - AND I COULD BE WAY WRONG - the other things you want to add could be setup as subdomains in your hosting company.
(some hosting companies put the subdomain behind the .com - mine does it in front)
All the different categories you want to add, set them up as subdomains then list them on the navigation bar with a link to those particular pages.
You can list them on the navigation bar.
Ex. Instruments - have different subdomains for each instrument listed under instruments. Do the same for all the different things you want to do.
You can create your Blog in Work Press, or whatever, and just put a link off your Home Page to your Blog.
Just be consistent, don't mix products. If you want to do Affiliate marketing in some other niche other than music, create another site. If you want to sell videos, make another site. Now if you found a good product dealing with music and you want to become an affiliate and sell it on your site - great.
This is just my 2 cents and more like "food for thought" than things you must do. Someone else may have different ideas on how you should handle your site.
