Music makes for well-being

There’s lots of scientific evidence about the positive impact that music has on various parts of the brain – mood, intelligence, learning and concentration, and even brain ageing. Making music with other people enhances all of these benefits – it uplifts the desire to create a community spirit, creates new ways of relating to other people, promotes tolerance and patience and understanding.
