For many children and parents, studying an instrument is a part of their lifestyle. Whether they have chosen the instrument themselves or their parents have chosen it for them, it can be an incredible experience. Being a musician offers endless possibilities for the child just starting out or the child who is at an advanced level. It is educational and it is social. It can provide your child with skills that he or she can use every day. It can be a hobby or a career and it can open doors to new experiences and new friendships.
You have probably heard the results of all the research on music education. Specifically, the research on how "training a child on a musical instrument can develop connections in the brain that are necessary for understanding complex math and science concepts." "Music can also improve reading ability, SAT scores, spatial reasoning skills, school attendance, teamwork, self esteem, self discipline, creativity and knowledge." Children that play their instrument in a group setting experience many of the same benefits as participating in a team sport.
Music adds to the quality of life, whether you are playing it or just listening to it. Offering your child music lessons may mean that one day he or she will be a musician or have a successful career in medicine or law. You can be assured that offering a child the opportunity to study a musical instrument is beneficial and positive, any way you look at it.
