Music is an interesting topic. It can be a form of expression, a way to communicate with others and it has been shown to have many positive effects on our lives. With all the benefits music can have, why would anyone not want to play? Well, there are some reasons people might avoid playing and this article will cover those as well as the benefits that come from making music.
Music can be a form of expression
For some, it can be a way to let out their emotions and for others, it is a way of communicating with others. Some people use playing music as a way to express themselves more than just the words that come from their mouths. Sometimes you may need to release your anger or frustration into something that can be controlled, rather than taking it out on someone who may not deserve it.
For some, music is a way to communicate with others. It can be used as an immediate message for communicating feelings or thoughts. Some people sing at their jobs so that they can express how they feel about the customers and what they need them to do in specific situations. Music is also something that can have a great impact on other areas of your life.
Music has been shown to have many positive effects on our lives, such as increasing cognitive function and promoting social interaction
Music has also been shown to improve cognitive function. This is because it stimulates the brain in different areas that regular ‘silent’ thought doesn’t. When you put your conscious effort into something that requires motor skills, like playing an instrument or dancing, it stimulates parts of the brain related to those activities more than if you were just thinking about them. This can help to prevent dementia or other memory problems as you get older.
Another great benefit of music is the increase in social interaction it brings about. When people are playing instruments together, they tend to interact more with each other than if they were just sitting around talking about random things because there’s a common goal that everyone is working towards. For example, if someone is playing the drums at a party, everyone else will tend to gravitate towards them because they want to see what’s going on and possibly join in.
Music also helps people concentrate. With the increasing amount of distractions in our lives, it can be hard for some to focus on one thing, and playing music is a great way to get rid of those distractions. There’s no room for thinking about anything else when you’re trying to keep up with the tempo or beat. Many students have found that if they learn to play an instrument by taking lessons such as bongo lessons, they find it easier to concentrate in school and do better. So, taking guitar lessons is a good idea to help children enhance their concentration while learning to play a musical instrument.
Playing music can be beneficial for all ages
It doesn’t matter how old you are or whether or not you have experience with instruments or even making music. Music can still be beneficial for everyone.
Children who are learning how to play instruments will find that it’s easier than trying to learn without one. Even if you’re not very good at first, just the act of trying to keep up with the music or follow along with your fingers can be a great stepping stone towards helping them achieve more than they could without the help of a musical instrument.
It doesn’t have to be an expensive or difficult process either. Sometimes renting an instrument for a while can give someone access to something they normally couldn’t get their hands on, and then when they’re done with it, you can always sell it back if you choose to.
Music is great for making people happy because it releases feel-good hormones like dopamine and serotonin
Studies have shown that people who play instruments regularly are more likely to be happy with their lives because they constantly have those feel-good hormones being released. So, not only will playing music benefit you now, but it can carry over into your later years as well.
You don’t necessarily need an expensive instrument or even a digital one to produce music either. If you have a relatively good voice, then singing is the perfect way to showcase it and that can be very beneficial as well. There are even apps now where you can make your songs with nothing but your phone!
Music can have a great impact on other areas of your life. From creating a rhythm to improving cognitive function, there are many ways that music can help you and your kids-embrace life. Music is an enjoyable activity for all ages so take some time this weekend or next week to enjoy something new!
