Learning a Musical Instrument: Music Therapy for Seniors

Some people might look at learning how to play a musical instrument as an activity best done when still a child. Music lessons in post-retirement, however, have just as many benefits:
  • Help slow down or stop the onset of dementia & Alzheimer’s
  • Improve hand-eye coordination, eyesight, and hearing
  • Stimulate activity in the cerebellum region of the brain
  • Lessen depression and loneliness
  • Improve levels of alertness and receptivity
  • Boost memory
  • Reduce stress

You Can Start Now

It's never too late to gain benefits and prevent age-related changes even if you didn't take up an instrument until later in life. Researches studied the impact of individual piano instruction on adults between the ages of 60 and 85. After six months, those who had received piano lessons showed more robust gains in memory, verbal fluency, the speed at which they processed information, planning ability, and other cognitive functions, compared with those who had not received lessons.
