Musical Instruments and Your Brain

By: Tina Davidson

Do you have a favorite instrument? Did you know playing a musical instrument is like giving your brain a full-body workout?

In a previous post, I mentioned the brain benefits of playing the ocarina. Recently, I found the following video about how playing an instrument benefits your brain, thanks to one of my favorite blogs, Inside the Brain. It is a TedEd Lesson worth sharing. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Who knew you’d get better executive function skills just by busting out some tunes? Enjoy the video and here’s to many happy hours of practicing! Here’s what I’ll be playing.
