Its back to school time! If you are like most parents, chances are that you are trying to figure out your schedule of activities for your kids as you get back into the swing of things for the new school year. We may be a little biased, but we think music lessons would be a great choice for your family. Let's take a look at some of the reasons why!
MORE THAN A SEASONAL ACTIVITY
One amazing benefit of learning to play an instrument is the fact that it is something that so often becomes a lifelong passion. When considering different activities, you may want to think about the lasting benefits for your kids. For example, sports are wonderful (we love sports, too!) but are usually seasonal, so kids typically play a particular sport for just a few months out of the year. Music is a fun and productive activity that can be enjoyed all year long, so students can continue to enjoy and grow with music on an ongoing basis. They will continue to build on what they learn now during all four seasons of the year, rain or shine.
A PASSION FOR LIFE
Additionally, music is something that students are able to continually improve with for many years to come. We all know what it is like to be “past our prime” with our favorite sports as time takes its toll and leaves us unable to compete at the level we enjoyed when we were younger. Music, on the other hand, allows students to continue growing and improving for many decades before they experience the effects of age to be detrimental to their ability to play their instrument. People rarely play competitive sports in their 50's, 60's, or beyond, but most musicians still play and often continue to improve their skills and musicianship for years past that.
DEVELOPING VALUABLE LIFE SKILLS
Since kids are just getting back to school, it is very beneficial that learning to play an instrument helps children to develop valuable life skills like structure, organization, and discipline. Those skills go far beyond an instrument and help prepare them to excel in school and in just about all areas of life. Practicing an instrument teaches students the value of delayed gratification so they learn for themselves that hard work pays off.
INCREASED ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE
Did you know that students who learn to play an instrument also see benefits in their academic performance? Music students even see higher SAT scores to the tune (pun intended) of 57 points higher on verbal and 41 points higher on math. Additionally, they earn more awards and honors and see higher grade point averages.
Don't forget the fact that learning to play an instrument is fun! Music is a fun way to be productive and is a great activity to work into your child's schedule this school year.
