Key Benefits of Learning and Teaching Music

by Weinber John Music School in Australia

Regardless of cultural or language background, it is good to say that almost everyone enjoys at least some form of music. Yet for how popular music is, it is quite astonishing to observe how little people promote the benefits of music education. To help spread awareness on the significance of music education, here are some of the key benefits of teaching and learning music.  

Better Neural Activity

Research has shown that playing an instrument needs more of the brain than usual day-to-day activities, which, overtime, leads to musicians having a stronger, more diverse neural structure than non-musicians.

Music Enhances Intellectual Curiosity

By listening to a song or learning an instrument, people will naturally increase their intellectual curiosity about life in general. For instance, after listening to a song, a student becomes curious as to how that particular song was composed and thus desires to learn an instrument. Also, they may then become interested as to why some chords sound sad. In order to explore these intellectual avenues, expert guidance is required, thus hiring professional violin teachers in Meadow Heights become important.

Fine Tunes Auditory Skills

As one may imagine, learning an instrument and listening to music fine tunes auditory skills and improves the brain’s ability to discern meaning from what it is hearing. For instance, students spend an adequate amount of time listening and playing music will often have a sharper sense of hearing and are better able to predict and follow patterns.

Improves Creative Thinking

It is evident that music can play an essential part in developing critical thinking. Whether it is composing a new song from scratch or analysing lyrics to uncover their meaning, music provides students with numerous opportunities to be experimental and creative. This experimenting is greatly required in schools as few subjects provide students with the rich creative opportunities that a musical education offers.

Strengthens Hand-Eye Coordination

Usually, people tend to associate coordination with physical movement like running, dancing, walking, and jogging, but music is also beneficial to coordinate individual body parts. It is widely known that practicing a musical instrument on a regular basis can immensely improve hand-eye coordination.

Cultural Affinity

Over a period of time, music has been used as a cultural emulsifier. Music can be leveraged to promote the acceptance of cultural diversity, as well as to inspire individuals to explore another country’s culture, music, and ethnicity.
