Are you considering learning a musical instrument, but are not sure if you should? Don’t worry, you are not alone. Here at Zenith Music, we like to say it’s never too late to start learning a new instrument! Below are just a few reasons why you should learn an instrument in 2022:
1. It can be a lot of fun
People around the world have been playing musical instruments for thousands of years now, and for good reason – there is no better feeling in the world than playing an instrument for yourself, for friends, family or a crowd of complete strangers.
2. It can be social
If you play an instrument, you could look at joining a musical ensemble, band or working with other people interested in music, forming friendships and other collaborations. You could also join an in-person or online community group related to your instrument and discuss tips, upcoming events etc. with other like-minded folk.
3. It can be a way to challenge yourself
If you are looking for a new hobby or goal to work towards in your free time, perhaps learning a new instrument could be right for you. And while yes, learning a new instrument can be challenging for beginners, don’t give up! As the saying goes ‘practice makes perfect’.
4. Or simply a way to unwind after a long day
Over the years there has been plenty of research into how making and listening to music can help to relieve stress and have other health benefits like reducing a person’s heart rate, lowering blood pressure and elevates mood.
