A Bespoke Opinion - Why Taking Up a Musical Instrument later in life benefits you!

You regularly hear that it is pointless beginning a new hobby, specifically a musical instrument, later in life as the mind is not as agile and less able to absorb new information. What’s the old saying, can’t teach an old dog new tricks?

We at Bespoke completely refute this claim, and besides, puppies are hard work.

Bespoke believes that adult hood and later life is the most effective point to begin playing an instrument, not only for your continued cranial capabilities but for the general enrichment of your life.

Most of us reach a point where school, and the challenges that entailed, are a fond but distant memory, work is challenging, but in a secular manner and offers little variety for stimulation, meaning we are looking for ways to further stimulate our mind, keep us sharp and ensure a new rewarding challenge.

By beginning to learn a new musical instrument, whether from scratch or previous experience, you are ensuring prevailing strength, both mind and body, a new hobby to stimulate your cultural appetite and the promise of fun, a way to relax and unwind.

As the mind becomes more established, it can be harder to gain new knowledge and skills, but surely that’s all the more reason to persevere and ensure longevity.
