The Benefits of Musical Training Nathan Downey

Music has the interesting effect of creating empathy in those who regularly experience it.

People that learn music together will learn empathy through overcoming challenges by working with each other to become better musicians.

Empathy is defined as the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.

Others will learn empathy through playing music together. Where, they will learn to sense the feelings of those they play with through music and other interactions.


This EMPATHY then flows into relationships of every kind in the person's life.

They will begin to seek out the thoughts, feelings, and emotions of others as they interact with them.

They will begin to share these feelings with the other person and react to these feelings in the most appropriate way.

This allows for the growth and strengthening of friendships.
