Benefits of making music

...with side effects of silliness!

How music helps young minds

As an increasingly de-prioritised subject, it is easy to overlook the immense benefits of making music with others. We all know that it's probably good for some reason - but what does learning a musical instrument really do for you? 

It gives you abs

OK so maybe it won't give you abs but learning a musical instrument does have as much impact on some aspects of well-being as physical activity. Playing the piano can exercise the heart as much as a brisk walk. 

It develops life skills 

Music playing helps with the development of life skills, including teamwork, social skills and self-discipline. It also helps you to focus and can lead to a sharper mind in old age. 

It makes you clever-er

Learning an instrument has been proven to increase IQ and can actually be considered a 'superskill'. 

It makes you feel good

Playing an instrument for just a few minutes a day can help to improve self-esteem, make you feel more positive and boost your mental health. 

I've loved having music in my life and the joy, fulfilment and adventure it has given me. Music making has taken me around the world, formed great friendships, given me confidence and provided a great deal of fun along the way.
