Make Music Your Hobby

Make Music Your Hobby!

1. Instant Mood Lifter

You can’t deny that when you hear or sing your favorite song, you suddenly feel better. I don’t know what it is about music or even why it happens. It just happens.

You can bring music into your life by learning to play an instrument, take voice lessons or create original music that lifts your spirits. 

Make yourself happy.

2. Release Your Inner Rock Star

Oh yeah.

You know it’s in there.

The need to rock out to your own music. 

Why not start at home and pretend you are playing for crowds?

Practice. Get Good. And then go do it.

Rock on!

3. Play with Others

You don’t have to keep music to yourself.

You can join a local band or orchestra or rock out by starting your own garage band.

Participating in a musical group with others will create a unique sense of community and ability to grow new relationships.

4. Create Your Own Music

You can write music and lyrics for yourself or for others.

You can compose instrumental songs to play yourself or to share with other musicians.

Regardless of the type of song you write, this is a one of a kind gift that only you can create.

No one else can put the lyrics and melody together like you can.

Every composer adds their own unique twist.

And so can you.

5. Music Makes You Smarter

So many studies have been done on how music improves brain function.

Students can use songs to help them memorize academic facts (like these medical students).

There have also been studies showing that having music playing in the background helps you remember and retain information longer. 

Keep your brain as active as possible by making music your hobby.
