Cue the music! Did you know that the brain benefits of playing a musical instrument last even into old age?
Older adult musicians with hearing loss pick up sound more quickly and accurately than younger non-musicians.
Since music activates several areas of the brain and also involves coordination between sensory and motor systems, it has also been linked to improved cognition and balance.
Music keeps the hearing brain young, and our practice always emphasizes ways to age healthfully!
