Why learn the Ukulele Mele Way
BENEFITS OF PLAYING MUSIC
“When we sing or create music, we use all the parts of the brain: left, right, front, and back. All these parts collaborate. That is very unique! Music is complex; that is, it uses so many aspects of a person’s being.” — Hanne Deneire, composer.
According to a recent Gallup poll, “seniors are turning to music making as not just an enjoyable pastime, but also for the health and wellness benefits such as enhanced immune systems, stress reduction, and staving off depression and loneliness.”
According to the 2008 NAMM Global Report on Music, 82% of adults who don’t play a musical instrument wish they did. And the reason is because, at the most basic level, music helps us feel better about ourselves. NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) is the trade association for the international music products industry. The Foundation promotes the joy of music and music making for people of all ages and abilities. Learn more about why play music >>
