Music is a Powerful tool for Well-being!
Music can help rewire our brain by building new neural pathways to help people with brain injuries and alzheimer patients with speech and motor skills.
By playing music you're giving yourself a full brain workout. It activates the right and left hemispheres of the brain, creating a lot of brain activity that is very beneficial.
Music is great for mental health
Music can decrease depression by reducing the stress hormone cortisol. The benefits of music can boost your immune system by increasing white blood cells that help fight disease such as cancer.
Interactive music-making can regulate emotions that help with rationalising thoughts and behaviour. Music improvisation can shut down parts of the brain that over things, which stimulates creativity and problem solving skills, plus it makes us feel great!
Making-music stimulates the pleasure part of the brain, so it's just like eating chocolate.
