This post is a continuation of my previous post “How Playing an Instrument Benefits Your Brain”. Carlos Courtney, a student of mine and drum instructor, found this video and requested it be on my blog. It’s amazing how playing an instrument (like drums) has such a positive impact on us and spurs emotional and behavioral growth. I am putting links to the studies mentioned under the video. Enjoy “Why You Shouldn’t Quit Your Music Lessons” and contact me with any questions.
