Reasons To Learn How To Play An Instrument

This is a collaborative post where we discuss the reasons why you should learn to play an instrument.

Playing a musical instrument seems to be a choice we make in our childhood. We either choose to learn the piano, guitar or the recorder or we go through our early years not learning a thing. It is never too late to teach yourself how to play an instrument, and there are many amazing reasons why you should make this your next hobby.

A better social life

Imagine how amazing it would feel to have your friends and family gathered around your Yamaha B series piano at Christmas as you play a song? This would be great, but in all seriousness, music can make you more sociable. Joining a musical group, a band or an orchestra could be a brilliant way to make new friends, bond and try new things. What could be better than playing at a venue with some great friends?

It releases stress

We all get stressed out at some time or another in our lives, and one of the best things we can do to calm us down is to play or listen to music. Music is great for the soul and it improves our mood. It allows us to forget about the world for a moment and express our emotions in a constructive way. If you are constantly stressed, picking up an instrument can make a big difference to your mental health.

It makes you proud

Learning a piece of music and being able to play it without a single mistake is something which will make you immensely proud. Music is wonderful and gives us a sense of achievement which we rarely have with other hobbies. You’ll be so happy after you have managed to play a difficult song that it will leave you in a great mood for the rest of the day.

It makes you confident

If you have always been a person who is introverted and shy, you will likely struggle to talk in front of people and to make new friends. When you start to play an instrument you will gain a sense of self-love because you will appreciate the talent you have. If you then play on stage you will become more confident in front of strangers and this can translate to instances where you have to meet new people. It is well worth learning an instrument if you can become more confident as a result.

It makes you creative

When you teach yourself how to play an instrument, you are opening your mind up to a whole new world of creativity. When you practice and master a difficult piece you have been learning for a while, you will feel a new sense of achievement and you will be tempted to try your hand at making music yourself. Making your own song can be a wonderful thing to do because it lets out emotion and opens your mind. You will feel ready to make art, cook a new dish and even take some photographs. Creative hobbies make you more creative as a person.

As I have a few months away from university, it would be a perfect time for me to learn to play an instrument but I have no idea which one to choose. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    I was so bad at learning anything in school! Tried learning guitar and I still own a guitar but I guess playing music doesn’t interest me anymore only listening

      I’m pretty much the same! I had a guitar for so long but never got round to learning to play it
