Going into Lockdown again means that we are all going to be facing a different kind of Christmas this year and it may be a great opportunity to discover new ways to entertain yourself and the whole family.
Music has always been a great way to connect, a source of inspiration and a much needed escapism during difficult times. Perhaps you have you already dusted off your drum kit, piano or guitar and re-discovered your love of music or maybe you are a newbie with big dreams? Learning to play not only brings a lifetime of enjoyment but also a whole host of health and well-being benefits.
A recent study* shows young musicians who play an instrument and practice frequently have increased memory and attention skills. The findings come from a new study, which showed how musically-trained children performed better at attention and memory recall exercises. They also had greater activation in brain regions related to attention control and auditory encoding. In addition musically trained children have improved reading skills, higher resilience, greater creativity and a better quality of life compared to those with no music training at all.
Yamaha Music London Retail Operations Manager Stephen Davies comments: “Hundreds of parents have bought musical instruments to keep their children entertained, stimulated and happy during the pandemic. Digital keyboards, pianos and guitars, have proved very popular, they can be a good first step, compact in size and therefore don’t take up too much space at home. They are easy to play and relatively quick to make progress. A piano can be an ideal gift for a loved one or for the whole family to enjoy.
Many of our instruments come with tutorial apps and there are free online classes which are easy to access.
