How Kids Who Play Instruments Benefit

A music curriculum is an important component of a well-rounded education. Many benefits come from mastering a new skill, such as learning to play an instrument, in particular for children.


July 6, 2017

Stephanie Stein Crease, author of “Music Lessons: Guide Your Child to Play a Musical Instrument (and Enjoy It!”  believes that when your child plays a musical instrument, he/she receives the multiple benefits of becoming musically talented (no matter what instrument he chooses). A few of these advantages include:

Increased Self-Esteem

According to Beth Luey and Stella Saperstein, authors of “The Harmonious Child: Every Parent’s Guide to Musical Instruments, Teachers, and Lessons,” learning to play a musical instrument boosts your child’s self-esteem as she masters a new skill. When your child plays an instrument of her choice, whether she is a beginner or an expert, she experiences the sensation of doing something entertaining for herself and others. As she learns additional skills that allow her to play well, her self-esteem will increase as she discovers that she can reproduce musical selections on her instrument.

Enhanced Learning

Luey and Saperstein write that playing a musical instrument can help boost your child’s academic performance in the classroom. When learning to play a musical instrument, your child is exposed to rhythm and counting that can help him improve his understanding of many different subjects, particularly the concepts presented in mathematics. Music can also improve your child’s study skills, attention to detail and ability to memorize and repeat important facts.

Sense of Community

When your child plays an instrument, chances are she performs with other children who are both older and younger than she is. Crease reports that playing music as a group builds a sense of community and enables your child to feel as if she belongs to something bigger than herself. Working on playing music in harmony with other children will help your child learn about working as a team and will motivate her to work harder, so she does not let her peers down. Cooperating for the purpose of a common goal is a skill that children need as they get older and playing a musical instrument is a powerful way to show your child the value of cooperating with others.

I love how Marcos lets me learn so many songs, not just one! I like how he gives me compliments. It’s really fun when Marcos does the bass clef with the left hand and I get to make up my own song that goes with it for a warm up. It’s fun because I get to make up my own songs. I love the sound of the piano!

I really like that we get to pick what songs we want to learn in Marcos’s guitar class. I also love that he is compassionate and lets us progress at our own pace. Marcos knows EVERYTHING about instruments, and I’m glad he can share some of it with me. I’m glad that I get to learn how to read, write, and play music for the guitar. It is a lot of fun when Marcos and I play the guitar together!

I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!

Both of my children love their music lessons with Marcos. They look forward to their music lessons each week and come home eager to practice their new pieces. I especially love that he teaches them to compose their own pieces and inspires their musical creativity. Marcos is always positive and encouraging with my children, and he has a knack for bringing out their best. I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!
