Now, you might think that these articles are self-serving — that (no pun intended) we are tooting our own horn because, after all, we are a music school.
Well, let us tell you that what you read about in our blogs is based on facts (real, not alternative), and solid science is behind everything we write.
So with this in mind, let’s look at five reasons why music lessons make you healthier.
Actually, there are many ways in which music benefits your physical and mental health; these are just top five:
Music lessons can also improve motor skills, coordination, and even muscle tone — think of all the strength you need to hold an instrument or blow into it!
And did you know that music is beneficial at any age? According to an article in LiveScience, “Musical activity throughout life may serve as a challenging cognitive exercise, making your brain fitter and more capable of accommodating the challenges of aging.”
