The Benefits of Learning to Play an Instrument

In addition to academic studies, there are numerous extracurricular activities which children can enjoy that can also have a positive impact on their educational path. One of these activities is learning to play an instrument. If your child has shown an interest in music, The Tutoring Center, Long Beach CA has some information on how it can help your child succeed at school.

Group Study and Projects

Children can often find it challenging to work as a team to achieve a shared goal, and often become frustrated when receiving feedback or criticism. When learning to play an instrument and participating as part of a band, children are placed in an environment where each child shares a similar and enjoyable interest with a common goal. This environment makes it easier for children to receive and benefit from constructive feedback, along with teaching them how to construct and provide their own feedback.

Public Presentations and Speeches

Whether children like it or not, there will be times in their educational path, and even their careers, where they will be required to present a report or assignment publicly. Performing as part of a band is a great way for children to overcome the jitters which can accompany public speaking. This puts them in a more confident position when they are not only required to present a project to the class but present their argument in a constructive discussion.
