Studies have been done for years showing the benefit of playing a musical instrument, including one by my father! I play piano daily and used to play cornet too!

I am a musician and singer. It helps the soul complete it self. no matter what it is that is being played. As long as it is music that is real and comes from the player's Sould. Not a so called music machine.
