Imagine a world without music. Now wouldn’t that be such a dreary world to live?

As humans, music has been thoroughly hardwired to our minds since a very young age. Music or the sense of rhythm comes very naturally to us. If you have a natural affinity for music, and if listening to music brings you joy, you should definitely start playing an instrument. Why? Because if listening to music makes you happy, imagine what creating music would feel like!

Playing an instrument requires a great level of intricate thinking and quick decision-making skills. Just like any other part of your body, the more you work your brain, the stronger and more efficient it will be.

“I know that most joy in my life has come to me from my violin.” Well said Mr. Einstein!

Learning an instrument would likely be one of the tasks that requires patience. The important thing is you are practicing patience with yourself and for yourself which requires quite an effort. This will be a great life practice in life since we’re living in a fast-paced world and everyone seems to gravitate towards instant gratification.
