Keep you brain young with music! And it's never too late to learn an instrument!

John Hopkins Health Medicine recommends you "Jump-start your creativity" with music.


Piano lessons are often thought of as an activity for children. Adults can also benefit greatly from learning to play an instrument. As we get older our musical tastes don't always move with the times. Opening ourselves up to new sounds and musical genres is not only interesting, it's good for the brain!


"Listen to what your kids or grandkids listen to, experts suggest. Often we continue to listen to the same songs and genre of music that we did during our teens and 20s, and we generally avoid hearing anything that’s not from that era.

New music challenges the brain in a way that old music doesn’t. It might not feel pleasurable at first, but that unfamiliarity forces the brain to struggle to understand the new sound."


Learn an Instrument

"When 13 older adults took piano lessons, their attention, memory and problem-solving abilities improved, along with their moods and quality of life. You don’t have to become a pro, just take a few lessons."
