Famous guitar players like Van Halen, Joe Satriani, and Jimmy Page make playing guitar look easy, but it's a skill that takes time to master. In the process of mastering guitar, you'll improve your focus and mental health as well. Studies have shown that playing an instrument causes real changes in the brain.

Encourages Self-Expression

Learning guitar improves your mental health by encouraging self-expression. When you're at home alone practicing your guitar, you may find yourself become silly with it, jam out like your favourite musician, or focus intently on the emotions behind the song as you play your heart out. You'll feel more at ease to express yourself alone than in front of your guitar teacher, but as time goes on, you'll begin to feel more comfortable expressing yourself in front of others via the guitar. This self-expression is a great stress reliever; you won't have emotions bottled up inside of you anymore.

Builds Patience and Perseverance

Learning how to play guitar requires patience and perseverance. Don't run away just yet if you're the impatient type. Now would be the perfect opportunity to build patience and perseverance. Few people, if any, are born patient. Can you really think of a toddler that never threw a temper tantrum? Nope, we can't either. Through life experience and activities like learning a musical instrument, a person develops patience and perseverance.

To Play Guitar, You Need to Focus on Tempo, Pitch, Etc.

Another benefit of learning how to play guitar is it improves your focus because you need to concentrate on several elements, such as tempo, pitch, note duration, rhythm, and quality of sound. When you play guitar with others, you must also concentrate on hearing them to stay in harmony.

Regularly Playing an Instrument Causes Changes in the Brain

Research shows that regularly playing an instrument causes physical changes in the brain. As reported on The Telegraph, "New research suggests that regularly playing an instrument changes the shape and power of the brain and may be used in therapy to improve cognitive skills." Cognitive skills are mental skills that your brain uses to reason, learn, remember, focus, think, and read. Other areas of the brain that develop from playing an instrument are sections that are responsible for motor skills, which are the movements you make with your body. Examples of motor skills include running, walking, tying your shoes, and using your hands.

Without stimulation, your brain declines with age. Playing guitar is not only a fun activity once you become good at it, but it's healthy for your brain too! Learning how to play guitar will improve your mental health, build patience and perseverance, enhance your ability to focus, and develop your cognitive skills. These are all useful benefits in your life. With better mental health, you'll feel happier and more relaxed. A larger reserve of patience and ability to persevere will get you through the tough times in life. It might even prevent you from saying something you don't mean in an argument. As you can tell, playing guitar provides many benefits in several areas of your life.
