Benefits of Music Lessons
According to an article published in National Geographic Online, taking music lessons as a child can help develop your brain… Even late into life. It turns out that adults who had taken music lessons (of any kind) as children have a higher sound discernment compared to those who had never taken any kind of music lesson in their lives. It also helps your brain grow and expand, no matter what age you were when you began studying your instrument.
It also seems that the longer you play the better! As written in the article, those who had played an instrument for 10 years or longer had a much better cognizant memory and were also better at taking in and adapting to new information. Interestingly enough these benefits continued on in those who played as children but hadn’t played for over 40 years.
So it seems that even beyond the initial happiness and knowledge we receive from taking lessons, learning or working on music is a skill that will resonate benefits continually for life! So keep practicing and see the results, even beyond our upcoming Spring Recital!
