“Most people are fascinated to see someone play a musical instrument in an inspired way. We are moved by witnessing musical brilliance” (Steve Vai)

The ability to play a musical instrument allows you to communicate in a new language, a language which can explore every aspect of human emotion and touch a person’s heart and soul. Throughout life, we will all meet people we may struggle to connect with or fully understand, however, being able to create music allows you a new avenue, another way to express yourself, showing who you are and what you can do!

Here are some of the key ways in which music will change your life:

Patience:

Despite the overwhelming enthusiasm when starting to play a musical instrument, achieving any milestones requires patience and dedication to practice and improvement. These traits will follow you into adult life, ensuring you have the ability to show determination and patience when striving for one’s goals or dreams.

Concentration:

We all know somebody who has trouble focusing on one task before they get fidgety and move onto the next. Sitting down and concentrating on learning a piece or reading from sheet music helps to focus our concentration, which is unfortunately a skill we all need in school and work. However, you will have the upper hand on your peers who may not have the restraint to focus on one piece of work at a time.

Mental ability:

Remembering music and developing muscle memory is hard, and the process is a work out for the brain. However, that work out will do wonders for your mental ability and your intelligence. By pushing yourself in your music lessons your brain will become more adapt to remembering information and soaking up any new material. This will result in higher cognitive function and generally a higher mental capacity.

Social Skills:

The ability to play a musical instrument or sing will stand you in great stead when meeting new people or entering a social situation. As a musician, you will be used to performing in-front of strangers and in scary exam conditions. So, getting up and chatting to new people should be no issue whatsoever. And if things really became dire, there’s nothing people like more than singing to a piano or hearing you strum your guitar. Playing a musical instrument is also a great way to connect to fellow musicians or music lovers, everybody loves music in one way or another, and you will have the ability to use that common trait to relate on some level.

The ability to play a musical instrument is something no one will ever be able to take away from you. It is a lifelong skill which will only benefit you and give you the upper hand. Persevere and you will see the benefits!
