ere at Schertz’s MusiCenteR, we are more tha We do this job, not for the glory or money invo in the business and we still haven’t found that) believe in the power of music.  In a society that pushed the arts off to the side, we desire to help families understand the great value of making music a priority in their lives. Music should no be considered an “extra luxury”, but rather a necessity for a healthy life.  You don’t have to play the piano like Chopin for music to play an important role in your life.  Players of all skill levels, and abilities can enjoy the benefits of playing music.

 read study after study that shows a ink between music study and child brain development.  I will spare you the boring detai of these studies and get to the point. When a ch studies music, he or she is using both sides of t brain in ways that enhance their ability to learn thinking skills, creativity, and emotional health mention the physical benefits of increased hand coordination and fine motor skills.  

ver, you don’t have to be a child to benefi .  I hear some version of this line all the ti too old to learn to play the piano.”  The implica learn to play an instrument as a child, and if yo This is simply not true! We all know that kids s than adults.  Their brains just seem to soak ever This is what is known as neuroplasticity (millio word for the day).  It’s the brains ability to grow and change.  Children’s brains have this in drov they are constantly taking in new information f to process. Well, guess what?  Studies have sho studying music increases neuroplasticity in adu well.  So the very act of learning an instrument learn it better!  It can also help in everyday task and home.  You’ll start remembering things better, you’ll pick up new tasks more quickly, and  your increased criti-cal thinking skills will help solve all those pesky problems!  

so means that music may help stave off and diminish fects of illnesses such as Alzheimer's disease as we progress into our golden years.  Studies have also shown that simply listening to music helps to ease emotional distress and promote healing in patients with mild to advanced mental Illnesses. Basically the study of music through a lifetime helps us stay sharp and healthy mentally, physically, and emotionally.  It is a total Mind, Body, and Soul workout.  So don’t sell music short, and never think it’s too late to get started. Music lasts beyond a lifetime, and is a gift you can pass on for generations!
