4 Benefits
of Learning the Violin for adults

Of the many reasons why learning to play the violin can be beneficial to any adult, we present our top four below:


Music is FUN!

This is where it all begins. Before the physical coordination and emotional depth that comes with advanced musical ability, we start with the essence of music itself – music is FUN! Making the transition from listener to performer is a wonderful journey that is meant to be enjoyed along the way.

Refine Life Skills

The process of learning an instrument takes a student on a journey developing important life skills such as routine development, critical thinking and analysis, persistence, and many others. Students successful at learning the violin can apply those same exact principles to any endeavor in life and be the better for it!


Neurological Workout

There have been numerous studies showing that playing a musical instrument is good for your brain! “Playing the violin – which, like many instruments, requires the right hand to do something different than the left–  uses the peripheral nervous system, which controls movement of your fingers, as well as gross and fine motor skills. The brain’s executive function – which plans and makes decisions – is involved as a musician plays one part but keeps focus on what’s coming next.  Couple that with the total sensory input – visual, auditory, emotional and all at the same time – and it becomes a total “workout” for the brain.” – Penn Medicine News

Stress Reliever

Sometimes you just need an outlet. Playing the violin can be just that. “Research shows that making music can lower blood pressure, decrease heart rate, reduce stress, and lessen anxiety and depression. There is also increasing evidence that making music enhances the immunological response, which enables us to fight viruses.” – Suzanne Hanser, chair of music therapy department, Berklee College of Music


Without a doubt, the benefits of learning to play the violin permeate into all areas of life. We love that we get to help so many students take the first step on their musical journey, and we look forward to the opportunity to do the same for many more. Our approach is specifically designed to not overload your life, so if you’re interested in learning, contact us and we can help!
