As a drum set and percussion instructor I've seen people of all ages wanting to learn how to play music. Music is an intrinsic part of being a human. We listen to it when we are getting ready in the morning, we listen to it in the car to work, we listen to it at work, we listen to it on our way home from work, and we listen to it while cooking dinner. Music is seemingly ALWAYS present in our lives!
If Music is ALWAYS present in our lives, then why do so few people choose to pursue learning an instrument?
There's a variety of reasons! Some of them include bad music teachers from their childhood, not enough income to buy or rent an instrument, never being confident in front of others, not knowing what instrument to play, parents never pushing them to learn an instrument, etc. The list goes on and on!
The reality is YOU and EVERYONE YOU KNOW can learn an instrument! The wonderful thing about this is that you will grow not only as a musician, but as a person! The PBS article linked below details a variety of scientific reasons music is beneficial to learn including Increasing ones IQ, better Spatial-Temporol Skills, and improving test scores!
So find an instrument you want to learn! Find a good teacher and get practicing!
