Music is something we love to embrace here at Gartmore House and World Music Day is a fantastic celebration of music in all of its forms and the impact it has on so many of us.
Here are 5 reasons why we love music:
A sense of achievement
Learning to dance (we love ballroom, jazz and Latin American) or play pieces of music on a new instrument can be a challenging, yet extremely rewarding goal to have.
Music is very relaxing which is great for our mental and emotional health. Studies show that music helps to boost our self-esteem and is useful for coping with stress and anxiety.
Music plays a great role in encouraging us to think creatively and solve problems by thinking outside the box. It also inspires us and opens up our mind to new ideas.
Music is a fantastic way to socialise with others as it allows us to relax and have fun. Music also allows each generation their own voice as it is constantly changing and always evolving. Music has the capacity to teach us things about our values and others, other cultures, other periods of history. It always adds something special to a party.
If you are feeling low, there are many wonderful songs that can give you a boost. Music is the soundtrack of life. In fact, researches have showed that listening to music will make you more active and help improve your concentration and memory.
Why not book a singing or dancing weekend at Gartmore House and lose yourself in the music!
