Why Learning Music is Worth the Investment
If you are to look at today’s trends, more and more people are taking up music classes!
Parents enrol their children in music school to learn to sing and play an instrument as early as possible, while adults take up short-term courses to either learn a new skill or enhance their music abilities. But while you may think that this is all for the quest of acquiring fresh talent, in reality, it is more than that. In fact, by enrolling in a music class, you are doing a highly lucrative investment.
How so? Here are the reasons that you definitely should consider:
1. You can find enjoyable work in the entertainment industry.
Let’s say you studied singing. While you may not sing like famous divas such as Mariah Carey or Faye Wong, the fact that you can sing may land you onto highly enjoyable jobs in the entertainment industry. You may work as a backup singer and be paid per gig, or as a ghost singer for celebrities. You may also score dubbing jobs as these often look for people who not only have a good control of their speaking voice, but also of their singing chops as well.
You may want to join the entertainment industry on a per gig basis, but who knows? You may find yourself doing it full time if luck is in your favor.
2. You can use your musical abilities during special occasions.
Being able to perform a musical piece is highly useful especially when you are tasked to manage special occasions, such as events. While you may not take on the role of a host, the ability to perform to an audience (as a one-time stint) makes the event more enjoyable, as the guests are kept elated all throughout.
You also save the need to hire a singer or a musical performer, as you can do the job on your own.
3. As a parent, you have an extra skill to teach your child.
Primary learning always begins at home. With that said, if you want your child to become appreciative of music, then you would want to learn to learn it too. Enrolling in a music school enables you to learn singing or a playing an instrument through different levels, and the lessons you learn you can then impart to your child when the time comes.
4. You can join or form your own band.
Do you still want to pursue your dreams of becoming a rock star? If so, then learning music is the way to go. Learning to play the guitar, piano, or any other musical instrument gives you an edge when playing with a band, as you know how to play in both the classic and experimental manner.
It would also be easier for you and the band to compose original songs because you have the theoretical background of music.
On the other hand, you may take on the role of a session-based performer, or a musician who takes on gigs for bands who need an additional member for one-time performances. This is common among acoustic/unplugged performance sessions, studio recordings, and even concerts.
