An excellent article discussing why you may want to make music education a part of your, or your child’s life. It can be difficult to find time to practice. I wrote this article in an effort to put things into perspective. Everyone needs strategies for getting the instrument in their hands, and then getting something done. The ideas in this article have helped my students find success. The cognitive benefits that one gets from studying music are kind of amazing. Check out this TED-ed video to see why.
