Learning and playing a musical instrument can be a fun and entertaining challenge. It can be a relaxing and enjoyable activity to take part in, alone or with others. You can accompany yourself when singing your favourite songs. There are other benefits to music lessons. Learning, performing or listening to music are among the few activities that activate the whole brain, and actually creates new connections between different parts of the brain! There is strong scientific evidence that shows learning music assists with learning literacy and numeracy, especially in people aged 5-7. The Uke4Kids program helps further with literacy and numeracy by incorporating maths and language into the program.
