Music Lessons at Any Age

Scores of people want to take their love for music to the next level by learning how to play an instrument. But too many feel they don’t have a natural ability or lack musical talent, and ignore the urge to register for music lessons. They might be intimidated by the hours that are required to be proficient at a musical instrument or be put off by the stereotypical lifestyle of a musician. In spite of all that, they might pick up a guitar and learn a few chords to sing songs to their children, or express their creativity by banging away on a drum set in a weekend garage band.

If you have a deep love for music-no matter if you are a senior, adult, teenager or a child-music lessons can be a boost to your self-esteem and your social life. Making music can be a solo act, but it is often contingent on playing with other musicians and connecting with other people. It is often more fun, too! Learning a popular guitar riff or piano jingle comes with great satisfaction, but it’s priceless to be able to break out your guitar while you gather around a campfire with friends. No one ever said that in order to become a musician you had to quit your day job.

Music lessons also can bolster your cognitive thinking and boost your brain power. Research published by the Institute for Music and the Mind at McMaster University in West Hamilton, Ontario in 2009 shows a strong correlation between children’s musical training and certain mental skills. According to the study, a year or two of musical training can lead to higher levels of attention and memory.

The style and genre of music you prefer, in addition to stimulating your thinking process, adds a bit of excitement to your social life by bringing you closer to people of similar interests-those who share your same passions and intricacies. You can learn and practice full songs with your friends once you have started with guitar lessons and are able to strum a few notes. You may even go out to inspirational concerts and musical events together.

Have you always had a secret desire to play drums, but thought it wasn’t worth driving your neighbors-not to mention your housewives-batty? It doesn’t have to be a noisy experiment to learn to play the drums; try an electric drum set or practice pad, and find a local rehearsal space to practice what you have learned from your drum lessons. If your child has a strong interest in becoming the next Travis Barker, you’ll want to think first of all about drum lessons, a practice pad and two sticks, before heading out with a full drum set that he or she may lose interest in soon.
