10 reasons to continue (or begin!) to practice an instrument and make music in your 50s and beyond

I played in a lot of bands in my 20s. Then I got a “real job” and had a life. Now I have time and energy to get back to it.

10 reasons to continue (or begin!) to practice an instrument and make music in your 50s and beyond
Preview

    1. It’s fun!

    2. Keeps your brain active

    There are so many directions to go in.

    3. Keeps muscles strong

    I was losing grip strength: now I play scales for exercise.

    4. Keeps your mind active

    Working out scales and rhythms is a great mind workout: like puzzles.

    5. Computer music has no limits

    6. You can buy the exact equipment pros use for just a few hundred dollars

    I have mentioned this here before but for less than $1000 you can have an amazing high definition studio and use the exact sounds and software that the pros use.

    7. It is very satisfying to make a sound that brings you joy

    8. You can look forward to an opportunity to play: it can get you up in the morning.

    9. You can relive the glory days if you were in a band when you were younger

    We are big in Japan...

    10. Appreciate the world more as you stay open to ideas that can lead you to musical expression.
