The Benefits of Learning Music

By Tim Woosley, Owner of Lincoln School of Music

Hey there! So, you’re thinking about picking up an instrument or getting your kid into music lessons? Awesome choice! Let me tell you, learning music is like having a secret superpower. It’s fun, it’s rewarding, and it’s packed with benefits that you probably never even thought about. Let’s dive into why hitting those notes is more than just making noise.

1. Brain Gains: Get Smarter Without Breaking a Sweat

Want to boost your brain power without doing calculus? Learning music is like a workout for your noggin. You’re reading notes, keeping time, and playing—all at once! It’s like juggling, but with fewer balls and more instruments. Studies show that music can improve your memory, attention span, and even your problem-solving skills. Basically, you’re turning into a genius, one chord at a time.

Key Perks:

  • Supercharged memory (no more forgetting where you put your keys!)
  • Sherlock-level problem-solving skills
  • Jedi-like spatial awareness

2. Emotional Groove: Feel All the Feels

Feeling stressed? Got the blues? Grab that guitar or hit those piano keys! Music is like a best friend that’s always there to listen and help you chill out. It’s a great way to express yourself without needing to say a word. Plus, belting out your favorite song? Instant mood boost. No therapy bills required!

Key Perks:

  • Stress be gone!
  • Happier vibes
  • The satisfaction of nailing that tricky song

3. Jam Together: Meet Your New Crew

Music isn’t just a solo gig. It’s a social magnet. Whether you’re joining a band, a choir, or just jamming with friends, music brings people together. You’ll make friends, learn to work in harmony (pun totally intended), and maybe even start your own band. Who knows? Today, the school choir, tomorrow, sold-out stadium tours!

Key Perks:

  • New friends who get your love for “Bohemian Rhapsody”
  • Teamwork that makes the dream work
  • Feeling like a rock star, minus the paparazzi

4. Patience, Grasshopper: Learn the Art of Chill

Ever heard the saying, “Good things come to those who wait”? Well, learning music teaches you just that. It takes time and practice to master a song or an instrument, and along the way, you learn patience and discipline. Plus, sticking with it through the tricky parts means you’ll be ready to tackle anything life throws at you. Even those IKEA instructions.

Key Perks:

  • Next-level self-control
  • Patience of a saint (or close enough)
  • Crushing goals, one note at a time

5. Unleash Your Inner Picasso: Get Creative

Music is like art, but for your ears. It’s a fantastic way to unleash your creativity. Whether you’re composing, improvising, or just jamming out, you’re creating something unique. It’s like painting a masterpiece, but with sound. And who knows? You might even invent the next big musical trend.

Key Perks:

  • A creativity boost that’s off the charts
  • Confidence to show off your musical flair
  • Your very own signature sound (move over, Mozart!)

6. Lifelong Jams: Keep Rockin’ On

Here’s the best part—music isn’t just a phase. Once you learn, you’ve got a skill that lasts a lifetime. You can keep playing, learning, and enjoying music at any age. It’s like riding a bike. Once you’ve got it, it’s yours forever. And let’s be real, who doesn’t want to be the cool grandparent who can still rock out on the guitar?

Key Perks:

  • Endless fun, even when you’re old and grey
  • Always having something awesome to do
  • Being the life of every party with your musical skills
