Why Adults Should Learn an Instrument by Layla from Brookfield Music.

Hi, I’m Layla from Brookfield Music.

At Brookfield, we believe that learning a musical instrument is something that has benefits for people of all ages, and we have many adult students who find a great sense of achievement and enjoyment in their lessons.

Learning music as an adult is something which not everybody considers, but which has numerous benefits for your personal growth and overall well-being. Here are some of the reasons why taking up an instrument as an adult a great idea:

1. Stress reduction and improved mental health - we all get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, and a hobby like learning an instrument gives us a great opportunity to take a break from our busy schedules and focus on an activity which sparks joy and keeps us in the moment.

Research has shown that playing music helps lower cortisol levels, reducing stress and anxiety. At Brookfield Music, our scenic location is the perfect safe space to relax and unwind after work with a fun music lesson.

2. Expressing yourself creatively - finding a space to be creative is something that often seems harder as we get older, and playing music is the perfect way to give yourself a creative outlet and let your inner artist shine.

3. Connecting with other like-minded people - Ever since Brookfield Music started, we have put a real focus on creating a community of people who are passionate about music. We host regular events and meetups, where you can meet new people, perform together and enjoy some social interaction.

If you are someone who learned an instrument in the past and is considering taking it up again, or have never learned before and want to try a new skill, send us a message to discuss getting started on your musical journey at Brookfield Music.

Thank you.
