In this pandemic, more Americans are picking up musical instruments they craved to play or are returning to those they may have screeched through as young kids. Staying at home and a restriction on socializing have provided both time and space for this new pursuit.
Even if you have never touched a musical instrument, taking one up now especially learning guitar, is a good way to help keep your brain healthy. Playing guitar engages every part of your central nervous system.
During the ongoing COVID-19 scenario, the sale of musical instruments and download of digital music-production software have spiked.
Research by the University of South Florida states that it is never too late to reap the benefits of playing a musical instrument. The research team studied adults in the age group of 60 to 85 years who took individual piano lessons but had no previous musical experience. The research found robust gains in memory, processing speed, verbal fluency, along with other cognitive functions, as compared to those who did not receive lessons.
Learning to play guitar for the first time or after a very long break may be easier than you think. If you would rather avoid in-person music lessons, use Guitar Confidence’s online guitar classes.
