Relax! Learn to play a musical instrument

February 2nd, 2011 by Sara

"Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul."

Private musical tuition is probably the best method of learning to play a musical instrument. Music is an important aspect of our lives and learning to play is a wonderful feeling of self achievement.

Musical education has formed an important role in all school curricula. It is a well known fact that music can help a person to relax, increase creativity and stimulate certain areas of the brain that can boost academic learning too.

Here are just a few reasons to take that old guitar out of the wardrobe:

  • It increases self confidence
  • Generates social interactivity
  • Develops creativity which in turn helps to solution day to day problems
  • Increases productiveness and concentration
  • Exercises the memory
  • Reduces stress
  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Improves assertiveness
  • It's FUN

The piano is probably the easiest and most complete instrument of all. Learning to coordinate both hands, one hand playing the treble and the other the bass is a fantastic stimulation for the brain. With just a few notes you can form a melody.

If the piano is not your instrument, due to lack of space or preference, then why not take a look at some of our music teacher profiles. We have tutors that provide tuition for the bagpipes, trumpet, flute, guitar, even Ukulele!
