Music lessons provide a wide range of benefits. They help preserve and develop children's natural creative abilities.
Studies show music lessons help develop concentration, coordination and self-discipline. Music lessons improve test scores, cognitive development, math and reading abilities, self-esteem, and school attendance.
Taking music lessons as an adult is great if you want to bond with your children, or have a productive hobby that stimulates your mind and fingers. Music making makes adults healthier. There are significant decreases in anxiety, depression, and loneliness following music lessons. These are factors that are critical in coping with stress, stimulating the immune system, and in improved health. So, if you have been thinking of taking up accordion or any musical activity after all these years… it looks like it’s a great idea!
