Actively participating in music has far-reaching benefits for everyone regardless of age. Young children benefit from music lessons because making music improves their development of motor skills, and increases their brain power. School-age students do better academically because of participating in music programs. Active music making is an important creative outlet for adults. It helps reduce stress, fights disease and adds years to your life. For seniors participating in making music helps stave off depression, improves overall health and well-being, lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, fights the effects of Alzheimer’s, dementia and other conditions.
Music lessons are truly for everyone!
