Why Take Music Lessons During the Summer? Here are 5 Reasons Why!

If you’re wondering what to do this summer, you might end up scrolling through social media, playing video games, or spending too many hours on the couch. Instead, you should make the most of your summer and enroll in music lessons! Learning an instrument is a ton of fun, offers a wide array of benefits, and is perfectly suited for summertime. Here’s a look at the benefits of learning an instrument, and why summer is the best time to get started.

1. Summer Sun Boosts your Energy

Longer days mean more sunshine, which has actually been found to boost your mood and give you more energy. What better way to use that extra summertime energy than by learning to play a new instrument, or brushing up on your music theory skills?

2. Keep the Kids Entertained

Once school is out, most children find themselves with a lot of free time and not many ways to use it. Learning an instrument is a great way to keep your kids entertained while keeping their minds active. Much better than sitting in front of the TV at home or on their phones. Music lessons will help your child improve their math and reading skills too!

3. New Friendships

Being a musician opens the door to many opportunities to make new friends who share common interests. Music lessons at our local studios and music recitals for kids are just two of the many ways you can meet new people this summer.

4. Music Makes you Smarter

While there’s nothing wrong with spending some leisure time watching a movie or two, research has found that reducing screen time can have very positive effects on your brain. Learning an instrument is an excellent alternative that gets your child to focus on something other than their phone or computer, and there are many benefits to learning music for your brain.

5. Broaden your Horizons

With all the relaxation and free time on your hands, summer is the ideal time to broaden your horizons. Try things that may be outside your comfort zone, like performing at our recital nights or jamming with new friends.

Let this summer be the summer you learn and do something new. Visit our website to see a list of our local studios and click here to enroll today and get your first month free!

“Music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
