WHAT IS GAINED FROM MUSIC STUDY?
Music lessons are more than just learning to read music and playing pieces. Pursuing music study reaps many benefits for children and adults.
PERSONAL GROWTH: A love for music brings relaxation to the musician and to the listener. Recent studies have found that music lessons help to lower anxiety, depressions, and the feeling of loneliness. Most students learn easily. Music enriches the inner self and provides many hours of enjoyment to take one beyond the daily routine of life.
DEVELOPS A LOVE & APPRECIATION OF MUSIC: Probably the most lasting value of music study is the love and appreciation of music that is developed during lessons. The beauty and complexity of music unfolds as you learn about the stylistic characteristics of the different periods of music history, hear and analyze other interpretations and create your own.
PROVIDES EMOTIONAL RELEASE: Humans have the basic need to express themselves. Music expresses all the emotions of life such as joy, sorrow, and excitement. Music helps create an emotional release in both the performer and listener.
INCREASES CONCENTRATION SPAN: The more we exercise our brains, the more they are capable of doing. Learning to play an instrument and read music requires the student’s attention. To effectively keep a steady beat, play the correct notes, finger properly, and interpret all dynamic marks, a student must continually look ahead one or more measures. Music demands that the student develop concentration and mastery over distractions.
INSTILLS SELF DISCIPLINE: Did you ever notice in life that you seem to be the most productive when you have the least amount of time? When you have free days, it seems as if the day disappears, and not one thing was accomplished. Music lessons actually help you organize your lifestyle as you set and realize your goals.
DEVELOPS COORDINATION: Music improves coordination between thought and actions. There are 39 muscles located just in the forearm and hand, and at execution rates of technically advanced instrumental play, most of those muscles are intermittently active many times each second. Music performance requires mental alertness, accuracy, and good memory. Imagine the thought process required when playing piano. The eye sees the music and sends a message to the brain, triggering movements of fingers and feet as needed.
INSTILLS SELF-CONFIDENCE: Successful playing of an instrument gives the student a feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction.
