Benefits of Continued Music Lessons
Music affects longevity. Here's a link you should check out!
Besides the best benefit of being able to make music, there are a considerable amount of other advantages to continued music study.
You are making sure your child will get higher grades in school and will get into the best college or university possible by beginning and continuing music lessons.
With a higher grade point average in school, and the plus of having studied music throughout childhood, your child will be more likely to be accepted to his or her choice of college or university, and much more likely to get scholarships.
Here are just a few other examples of proven results of continues music study:
Success with music lessons takes a lot of discipline, and that discipline transfers to the skills necessary to be successful academically. Study skills, cognitive skills and communication skills are just a few areas which are continually improved with music lessons.
Because of the advantages of music lessons, we believe that the continued study of music can be more important than many other subjects in your child’s curriculum.
Students who take lessons throughout their grade school, middle school, and high school years show the greatest dedication and perseverance, and will reap the greatest benefits. They will have better musical skills and knowledge to enable them to enjoy music for the rest of their lives.
It is always a tragedy to let sports or anything else crowd out your child’s music education. Practicing takes very little time, especially compared with the time just one sport takes, and the rewards are incredible.
Again, long term music students will be accepted to better colleges and universities, and get better scholarships. If music were responsible for keeping your child off drugs, or decreasing your child’s stress, that alone would be reason enough to take and continue lessons. When your child ends up with a higher IQ because of music lessons, that is certainly reason enough to take and continue lessons. The self esteem that music lessons build is another consideration. And what about the development of better hand-eye coordination? There are so many more benefits that it would take a book to list them all. Let’s just say that with continued music lessons, you’re child is on the right path!
Music lessons pay for themselves many time over.
