Learning an instrument is highly beneficial for the brain. It increases intelligence, problem solving skills, coordination and team skills, it betters your mathematical ability, sharpens concentration and self discipline, promotes social and listening skills, increases memory capacity and promotes happiness in your life!

Playing a musical instrument could make you brainier, it is claimed.

Research suggests that practising scales and chords and mastering complex patterns of notes changes the shape of the brain.

It can even boost IQ by as much as seven points. And it is never too old to learn, with pensioners benefiting too.

All children should practice a musical instrument! And contrary to popular belief, so should adults, as it is never too late to reap all of these benefits by learning an instrument at an older age.
