Encouraging your children and yourself to play an instrument can have lasting effects that will benefit and enrich you for a lifetime and beyond. Just the physical elements of playing will improve your life from the discipline of practicing to conquering fears and improving coordination and memorization. Learning a musical instrument integrates eye-hand coordination, rhythm, tonality, symbol recognition and interpretation, attention span, and other factors that represent synthetic aspects of human intelligence. In addition, critical thinking, problem-solving, and learning how to work cooperatively toward shared goals are all skills which are reinforced through music education.
