2020 is right around the corner. We all know what that means: New Year’s Resolutions.
Maybe you want to hit the gym more often or spend more time with your family. Perhaps you’re hoping to reduce your household’s waste, spend less on non-necessities, or save up enough money to book an overseas holiday.
While these are all perfectly reasonable New Year’s Resolutions, we’re here to tell you why learning an instrument should trump them all.
Have a read of the three convincing reasons below, and when you’re ready to commit, get in touch with our friendly team to schedule your 2020 music lessons. Let’s get started.
Take your passion for music to the next level
You are already a massive music fan. You know the ins and outs of music history, you pretty much exclusively wear band shirts, and even in today’s digital world, you have an extensive vinyl collection. Everything sounds so much better after the expense and inconvenience of hunting down that obscure first pressing, right?
So, why not take your love for music to the next level? In other words, why not participate in your passion?
By learning an instrument – whether that be the guitar, violin, or piano – you will gain a whole new appreciation for your favourite composers and musicians. What’s more, after securing a solid foundational knowledge of music theory, you’ll be able to create your very own compositions.
Learn a new life-long skill
Learning an instrument is like riding a bike – it’s a skill for life.
Whether you are 15 or 50, 2020 is the perfect year for you to develop a brand-new talent. Not only does knowing how to play an instrument give you serious bragging rights, it makes you smarter, too. Don’t believe us? It’s backed by science. Check out our article, Why are Musicians smart? The truth behind the assumption.
Enjoy a little more me-time
We could all stress a little less and finding more “me-time” is one of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions.
Learning an instrument will give you ample time to tune out of work or school and tune into the present moment. As you play, 100 per cent of your attention is focused on the here and now, and this can have incredible effects on your mental and emotional well-being.
