Have you ever thought about what a gift it is to have music in our lives?

Have you ever had the joy of watching and listening to your child or grandchild as they played and sang to themselves?

As adults, music is a gift because it touches us in so many ways:

Music can give us comfort and be calming

That’s why they play peaceful music at the salon and spa. Next time the kids are being rowdy, play some soft music and watch the difference.

Music gives us joy and invigorates us

It can change your whole attitude to a situation or a task.

Music inspires us

Sometimes it’s as if the words leap off the page or on the big screen words touch our souls, give us courage or inspire us to do something.

Music creates moods

Have you ever watched a scary movie and the music tipped you off that something bad was coming? The same is true of poignant scenes. Music has that power to evoke.

Music triggers memories

Sometimes it’s a piece your grandmother played or a song your mum or dad sang to you when you were little. Sometimes it only takes a few notes for the memories to swell in your heart.

Think of all the ways that music can affect your adult brain and mood; think about what it could do for a young person in your life to be able to make music.

So how about you offer the gift of music to your child, niece/nephew or grandchild this Christmas?

The Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium is able to provide gift vouchers for any amount you choose towards the cost of lessons.

To purchase a gift voucher or to find out more, please call us on 02 6652 1592.
