  • Playing a musical instrument has been shown to benefit your brain more than any other activity.
  • Benefits include increased memory and reading skills, increased blood flow in your brain, and a reduction in stress and depression.
  • Performing music has also been shown to help reduce your risk of dementia.

Keeping our brains sharp and healthy is important to all of us. Nothing forces as many parts of your brain to work at once as performing music. The health benefits are well-documented, from sharpening your memory and focus to reducing stress and depression. It's even been linked to a decreased risk of dementia. Fortunately, while it's easiest to learn while you're young, research has shown that you benefit no matter what age you begin.

The many benefits of playing music include (but are definitely not limited to):

  • Training the brain's executive function, which includes decision-making and problem-solving skills.
  • Helping you process multiple senses simultaneously.
  • Aiding you in strengthening your relationship with others in a playful and engaging manner.
  • Increasing blood flow to your brain, which gives you energy.
  • Making you happier while decreasing anxiety and depression.
  • Helping stroke patients (and other victims of brain damage) recover quicker.
