I have given a lot of my time as a musician, teaching others how to play a musical instrument and I have met all kinds of people, from the very young to the very old, very gifted, and those not so gifted, but everyone can learn to play music but not everyone reaches a performance level that will ensure some kind of musical career, and it is not just the gifted students who take that step, more often than not, it is the so called plodders who eventually realise that they are very good at performing music, and push themselves harder to the end of the course.
It has been scientifically proven that music is very beneficial for all of us but this is especially true for musicians. In one study it was found that students who took music lessons, out performed other students in every subject in the curriculum when compared to those who did not take music lessons.
As parents we all accept the value of a basic education, reading and writing etc., but it is equally beneficial if not more so, that they learn how to play a musical instrument, and it is not only good for children but for all of us.
So what are you waiting for? If you haven’t already done so, go out and buy the instrument that you have been itching to have a go at, when you have made that bold step, the next step is to find someone who can teach you to play it. I will discuss this with you in the next blog.
