“Music is to the soul what the gym is to the body”
Since we are in our mother’s womb, music is present. When parents want to express affection, they sing and rock their baby, creating an atmosphere of love, protection and beauty. Music is part of us, of our roots, of our ancestors, of our first forms of communication. Music has an unimaginable power to move and transform us.
At the same time, music rests on a structure where order reigns, since one of its components is rhythm, which is present in all manifestations of life; when we walk, when we breathe, when our heart beats, when a horse gallops, when the waves crash, … The rhythm gives us anchorage, security, confidence.
In this way, music is woven from an ethereal, subtle, intangible material, and on the other, it is organized and supported in a consistent and structured framework. The two polarities emerge. Hence, at a neuroscientific level, a lot of research has been done in which they show how music impacts both cerebral hemispheres, in our limbic, cognitive and sensory systems.
Learning to play an instrument makes all these qualities develop. From the physical and corporal point of view, it involves great coordination and dexterity, for which a strong will is needed to allow us to meet the challenges it proposes to us. On an emotional level, you only need to listen to a melody to realize the profound impact it has on our emotions, on our imagination, how it makes us connect with our listening, with our feelings, making us live a journey to the deepest territories of our being. On a cognitive level, it develops attention, concentration, reasoning ability, order, creativity, … Playing an instrument is discovering, astonishing yourself, getting lost in unsuspected paths, wanting to climb the highest mountains, is having a friend forever.
