Why should my child play an instrument right now?
"Playing a musical instrument is a wonderful time in anyone’s life, whether your child is learning how to play the piano for the first time or you’re revisiting the guitar as an adult.
Music-making, by its very nature, is therapeutic and can help your family through these unthinkable times in more ways than you might realize. Whether you’re playing an instrument or singing together, music can increase happiness, cultivate creativity and keep the mind active. More importantly, it can help release deep-seated emotions and relieve stress.
Music also is a means to family socialization and a wonderful way to bring your family closer together. Now that we’re finding a surplus of extra time in our day, why not take this time to bring the joy of music-making into your home?"
