Too Much Stuff Already? Why Not Give the Gift of Music for Christmas?
If you can’t see the floor in your son’s room and your daughter’s bookshelves are already packed to the max, maybe it’s time to think about giving gifts that you won’t need to climb over to turn off the bedside lamp at night. What if you could give a gift that would stick with your child forever—and you’d never have to pick it up off the floor?
Many parents and grandparents are looking for ways to give gifts that don’t entail more consumption and accumulation. We want to recommend giving the gift of music!
Music is a gift that will keep giving all year long—and beyond. Playing music offers instant mental and emotional benefits. Results of study after study show that playing music can help the right and left sides of the brain to operate in tandem better than almost any other activity. And whether it’s a blue day or a bummer breakup, strumming a few bars of a melancholy ballad or beating out angsty emotions on a drum set is a surefire way to feel better. Music therapy is even being prescribed in hospitals and long-term care facilities because of the benefits it confers in repairing brain injuries, coping emotionally with pain and illness, and rejuvenating the brain and body in times of stress.
