Benefits of Music Study
The study of music has proven benefits for all ages. Besides providing a creative outlet and fostering creativity, the many benefits of music lessons can apply to all aspects of life.
For children, the study of music provides various proven cognitive benefits. It improves math & counting, reading comprehension, language skills, and hand/eye coordination. It teaches discipline, focus, concentration, and time management. Children can expand their cultural knowledge with exposure to different sounds, styles and types of music. The sense of accomplishment from learning and/or performing is a major self-esteem booster. Music is also a great activity to "unplug" from all the electronics in kid's lives these days!
For adults, the study of music is a great stress reliever! It also helps in keeping brain processing and memory active. Adult students may have had previous lessons at a young age and discontinued, or they want to pursue a lifelong desire to learn music and never had the opportunity until now. It is NEVER too late! My adult students are surprised at how quickly they can make progress, regardless of any prior musical training.
