Have you ever dreamed of learning to play an instrument? Or have you played in the past or as a child, but you gave it up? Do you want to pick that instrument back up and become an expert once again? It is never too late to take music lessons as an adult or pick up where you left off.
Here are several great benefits you can expect from taking music lessons as an adult.
Playing a musical instrument can help improve your focus and concentration
Even our brains need to be worked out every now and then, and music lessons are a great way to give it that much-needed exercise! There are many things you need to be able to concentrate on in order to play any musical instrument. You need to be able to read your sheet music, while correctly placing your hands/fingers, as well as keeping the correct posture. You need to be able to concentrate and focus on your lesson in order to excel (which may take practice), but we all know that practice makes perfect! Your brain will thank you after each lesson.
Music lessons are great for your mental health
In the past few years, we have all discovered how important it is to keep your mental health in check. Everyone needs a break from life’s craziness every now and then. Playing an instrument and taking lessons is a fantastic way to do that. Not only is it a creative outlet for you, but also it’s just plain fun. Music is one of the best ways you can give your brain a break and relax, even if just for a brief moment. Not only do adult music lessons work out your brain, but they also relax it too!
Taking music lessons will open new opportunities
It doesn’t matter how old you are or how much life you’ve experienced. Everyone needs to have new opportunities and discover new things and there is always something new to discover. Taking adult music lessons can bring those opportunities right to you. No matter the instrument you play, there are doors outside of Omaha School of Music & Dance that are open to you. For instance, there are a lot of small bands that play around the Omaha Metro area that are always looking for new members. There are also symphonies, theatres, and universities around the area that could use your musical talents. It is never too late to try new things with your newfound love of playing music!
You can meet new people and create long-lasting friendships
Here at OSMD, our music lessons are held once a week (or more if you take lessons for multiple instruments). This means that you see the same people every time you walk through our doors. You get to know people you may never have otherwise met, and you get to know your instructor very well. Whether you’re chatting in our lobby before your lesson, or getting to know your instructor during your lesson, you will for sure walk out of our studio doors with new friendships that may last a lifetime.
Taking music lessons can keep you up-to-date and take you back to your past
When you take adult music lessons, you learn a large array of different things. It doesn’t matter what instrument you play, you don’t just learn how to read the sheet music or play the instrument. Here at Omaha School of Music & Dance, our teachers are experts in their field and go above and beyond to teach their students all there is to know about their specific instrument.
You learn the history of the instrument and how popular it is today, as well as any new information or discoveries about your instrument. You also are able to learn some classic songs from the past and keep up to date with the new and current songs on the radio. This can become a conversation starter not only for your friends but also for children and family. It’s always nice when you can connect with your kiddos on something you both find enjoyable and interesting!
