Music lessons provide a unique learning experience not usually available in the classroom. For those no longer in school, lessons can be an outlet for creativity and provide something different from the daily grind of the work day. The musical learning experience challenges students to combine mental and physical knowledge to produce their own sound.
Learning to use sounds to express an idea, image, emotion, or for the sheer enjoyment of it, provides students with another way to learn about and to experience the world. Just as learning math, science, sports, etc. allow us to interact with others and our environment in different ways, discovering and being able to use music broadens the scope of our engagement with our surroundings.
