Benefits of Learning an Instrument

With all of the things we have packed into our lives, doesn't it seem like something is still missing but you can't quite figure it out?

This one thing is music! Although we have access to all kinds of music online at anytime, learning music and listening to it are two different things.

  • This one activity of learning an instrument has been proven to have a very positive effect on all the other things you do throughout your life.

Somewhere along this busy highway of life, many of us, especially kids, have lost something much needed...slowing things down.

Patience, creativity and the taking time out to think things through have been replaced with instant access to almost everything.

When it does come time to where we need patience for important things, we feel frustrated and we don't know why.

  • While many other activities have been great, music will give your life balance.

Many parents have expressed to us the wonderful results such as being more patient with the elderly, doing better in school and making better decisions.

Music Throughout The Years


If you listen to  music from different decades, you can still understand what they were feeling and experiencing by listening to those songs years later.

The creativity that comes from expressing yourself through music of both good and bad times is vital for a person to grow. It's something that will always be there whenever you need it.

  • Years ago when we didn't have so many things to focus on, there was a time when learning an instrument was one of the most anticipated things to look forward to.

Looking back, each decade gave us a reason for new music and expressing the feeling of the times we lived in.

Big bands in the 40's such as Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, and Cab Calloway were just as popular and needed as today's musical artists.

Throughout the decades, musicians developed Jazz, Swing, Rock-n-Roll, Punk, New Wave and more!

The music from the 80's is still enjoyed today, so it's not surprising that it's used in so many movies. Why were the 80's music so much fun? It's because it reflected a great positive time period!

 What's Next?

Years ago, music lessons were given in school as part of the curriculum and it was fun to find out which instrument you would like to learn!

Slowly however, the school music programs were replaced by other activities such as Football, Soccer and Field Hockey.

Music, being part of the Arts like dance and ballet were then taught in homes and small studios. As our world got faster and more things filled up our time, music lessons got left behind.

That's okay! There's room for music too!

Music is just as important as other activities, if not more because it's beneficial for learning, relaxing and celebrating!

Your Options and Good Practices

If you've never been on Zoom or other online meeting platform, it's very easy to download the app and we'll be glad to help guide you.

Now that things are starting to open up again, you can let us know if it would be better to have lessons online or have a teacher to come directly to you!

If you choose to have your lessons at your home, we still suggest that each student wash their hands before and after the lesson as well.

Your instrument should also be wiped down as a good habit for normal everyday uses and before and after each lesson.

To reassure you, our teachers have always sanitized their hands before and after each lesson, so we've already been in good habits!
