Learning a musical instrument can be a great way to spur interaction between the right and left hemispheres of the brain encouraging growth and learning. Music is universally loved no matter country, religion, race, or creed. In many schools, kids are offered the opportunity to take up an instrument in addition to regular music classes.
While not all children have innate musical ability and will continue on with lessons down the road playing into their teen or adult years, the experience can be a wonderful one filled with inspiration and opportunity for connection and growth.
Benefits of Learning a Musical Instrument
Improvement in memory capacity
Improved hand/eye coordination
Betterment of fine motor skills
Develop listening skills
Higher-level math skills
Improved reading and comprehension
Improved auditory response
Learning to read and play music encourages perseverance and discipline
The problem becomes that schools do not have instruments on hand for kids to play regularly and take home to practice. Because of this, each child must buy or rent their chosen instrument and not every family is financially able to do this. Brand new musical instruments are not inexpensive.
