Music heals our brain!
Did you know that playing music has several interesting positive effects on the brain? Many different studies explain that musicians’ brains create new connections and pathways which are not found in people who do not play music. This is the reason why musicians tend to perform better on certain cognitive tests.
These are some of the most important benefits that playing an instrument gives us:
Improved memory- musicians seem to have an above-average memory due to the fact that different pathways in the brain are activated when playing an instrument.
Increased coordination-intertwining your hands and fingers in rhythm requires highly coordinated movements, this acquired ability seems to translate to other tasks as well.
Better concentration- Playing any instrument requires a very high level of focus, which in return provides the musician with plenty of stimuli. This is very helpful for people who have ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).
Combating Cognitive decline- One of the most interesting and important things about music is its positive effects towards memory and cognitive decline. Studies have proven many times that even people with Alzheimer’s disease are able to remember music and any information associated with it. This is because music activates parts of the brain that improve cognitive abilities.
Stress Relief – Music is extremely effective for relaxation and stress management. Upbeat music can make you feel more optimistic and positive about life. A slower tempo can quiet your mind and relax your muscles, making you feel soothed while releasing the stress of the day.
All of these amazing benefits reflect in many other aspects of our lives and also strongly prevent mental diseases from developing. Maintain a healthy mind while learning to play your favorite instrument by joining and taking part in the best music lessons Elite Music Academy has to offer.
