Mental Health Benefits for Seniors

Learning to play music can help seniors beat the blues. It has been proven that the seniors who learned to play the keyboard reported decreased depresseion, lessened anxiety and lowered loneliness levels.  In 2005, a research study led by Dr. Barry Bittman found that playing a musical instrument reduced stress more than other relaxing activities such as reading the newspaper.  Playing the piano can help with your memory retention, and adds to your physical and emotional well-being, but learning an instrument in your senior years has other pluses as well.  These include allowing you to express yourself spritually and creatively, and even introducing you to new freindships as you pursue your love of music.  Finally, but perhaps most importantly, you can enrich the lives of your grandchildren and others around you through the gift of music
