Guitar playing is a great way to create space between an individual and their busy mind. It also improves confidence through learning new skills and has benefits to overall well-being and mental health, including helping you develop a greater sense of personal achievement.
Why Does Guitar Playing Help Mental Health?
Guitar playing has some surprising benefits when it comes to improving mental health and looking after your overall well-being. Playing the guitar is seen as a form of therapy to many and an opportunity to reduce stress. Due to the therapeutic nature of guitar playing, it naturally lowers cortisol hormones and helps you to feel more relaxed, engaged and in the moment.
Furthermore, it’s a fantastic way of expressing your feelings through music and not so much in spoken words. We strongly recommend being open in our safe and supportive bubble. However, if you’re not quite ready, guitar playing and music can be the closest next best thing. Further benefits of taking part in our guitar lessons include:
- Improves creativity lessons.
- Improves brain health.
- Strengthens physical coordination.
- Helps to boost confidence.
- Encourages social interaction.
