What learning a musical instrument can teach you

Learning to play an instrument can enrich your life and give you greater insight.

Here are five life lessons that picking up an instrument will teach you:


Discipline
You are solely responsible for your progress. While pessimists may look at it as overbearing, think of it as empowering and freeing. There are no excuses to make and you can't blame anyone else since it's all about dedicating hours to sincere practise.

Collaboration
While learning an instrument teaches you to be independent, it also involves you in group settings. For instance, a group guitar session with one or 10 other people will show you how to collaborate and make beautiful music together. While it's good to be self-sufficient, no man can live as an island. Also, collaboration leads to new ideas and ways of working. It also teaches you when to stop being a leader and gently back off.

How to move on
Anything could go wrong when you're performing live. The strings could break, you could forget the notes or even trip over things. Learning an instrument teaches you how to move on quickly after erring. If you hit one wrong note, move to the next. In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't matter that much.

Solitude
Neither Kurt Cobain nor Jimi Hendrix became guitar gods overnight. Daydreaming about being a rockstar or talking about it to your friends is fine, but what really makes you better is spending time alone with the instrument, even if you are attending group class regularly.
