Eric Clapton only purchases used instruments. According to Clapton used instruments are best because, before they even come into your hands, someone thought those particular instruments were worth playing.
Used musical instrument buyers are familiar with other benefits, too. And the biggest one is cost.
What You Gain From Playing an Instrument
The Mozart Effect proposes that people can become smarter by listening to just minutes of classical music every day. Sadly, researchers have derailed the Mozart Effect.
What has stood up to research, however, is that kids who play instruments have better reading and math skills than classmates who are not musically inclined.
2. Longer Life
Many of us are not children anymore. We are not, however, robbed of the benefits of playing musical instruments. Playing instruments into old age can help you live a higher quality of life.
In fact, in 2011, Northern University proved that musicians from ages 45 to 65 retained more hearing ability than others the same age who did not play instruments.
3. A Green Thumb
Although listening to classical music does not make humans more intelligent, playing music to plants is proven to help them grow faster.
Personally, I have an unfortunate knack of killing any and all plants that come into my possession. I am running out of options so, if I were musically inclined, I would give that a go.
Used musical instrument buyers know the cost of playing an instrument should not stop you from doing it. Purchasing used allows you to enjoy all of the benefits at a fraction of the cost.
