We all wish that we would have more free time to do what we like and to try new things. But with work, gym, family responsibilities, housekeeping, grocery shopping and everything else, we don’t have much time to do something we love. We have to maximize this time and spend it in a nice way. Learning music is a good way to take a break from your stressful daily life. You should try to take classes in a renowned music school and see what it could bring you. Here are some of the benefits playing music could have on your mood.
Learning an instrument is relaxing. You’re focusing on only one thing and you keep concentrate on your music. When you play and when you practice you completely forget everything else and truly live the moment. Don’t you often wish that you could stop time and not think? Music can do that for you.
Sense of achievement
When you practice a song for hours, it’s so relieving to finally get it right. It’s one of the best feelings in the world and it’s so simple. It could truly help in a week in which you feel like you’re not doing anything right. Imagine coming home on a Friday night, exhausted from a long stressful week, sitting at your piano and finally be able to play that song you practised. And believe me, it’s also fun to brag to your friends and family about your ability to play an instrument and to show them how good you are.
By attending classes, you’ll probably have the chance to meet people from other backgrounds who are also playing music to have a break from their daily lives. It can be truly refreshing to exchange with other individuals who evolve in different career and family type than yours. You could make new friends and develop a sense of belonging to a group and it could truly help your mood.
It’s easy and adaptable
Many people may think they can’t play an instrument because they don’t have the time or the talent. Most of the class only requires one hour a week with the teacher. After that, you decide when you want to practice and how long you do it. It’s ok to have weeks in which you’ll practice a lot and some in which you won’t play except in class. It’s also ok to change instrument if you don’t like it. There are no goals you need to achieve and no performance required. You’re doing it only for yourself and for fun, because yes, playing music is really fun.
