Benefits of Playing a Musical Instrument

Through the process of learning how to play an instrument, children develop many of the most useful skills which will help them through their entire life no matter what field they choose for their work.

In addition to the great fun that music provides to the performer and the listener, the process of learning how to play an instrument helps develop a longer concentration span, better memorization skills and increased psycho-motor coordination. It also develops the ability to set short and long-term goals and the organization, discipline and endurance needed to achieve those goals. Playing a musical instrument builds self-esteem by giving the student a powerful means to express his or herself.
