Why do we take music lessons? Music helps with anxiety, stress, and PTSD. But, there are a ton of reasons. So many good reasons that are backed with scientific evidence of how music benefits our lives. In 2018, a study was done that showed, once again, that music does in fact, calm the beast. At a rate of 65%, the subjects’ anxiety level was reduced significantly by simply listening to music. It isn’t news to us. There are decade of studies. But, what about learning music and music therapy?
Ask most any musician that you meet if they consider music to be therapy, in some form. Bet that they all say yes. While we don’t offer “music therapy” per se, we do understand how playing and listening to music helps with anxiety, stress, and PTSD. Music is a powerful tool in managing stress. The sooner we can give our children the tools to improve their lives, the better. As adults, it’s never too late to experience the healing in playing a song. It doesn’t even have to be “good.” Playing music is for the individual first, giving us a chance to express ourselves in a profound way. Then, we can take to others if we wish or keep it to ourselves. If you’ve never played before, don’t be afraid to try. We are creative beings and we have a need to make something that is uniquely ours.
If you’re an adult who is a first responder, police or active military, taking music lessons should be a consideration is coping with the stress or your work. Thank you for all that you do for other. Taking care of yourself is the key to helping others. Dealing with PTSD, stress and anxiety had been ignored in the past. Today there are more options available beyond the councilors office. Our hope is that every one will seek and find activities like music that helps with anxiety, stress and PTSD.
