The music equipment from American Parks Company helps create a sense of community, connection, and a sense of belonging. This is only one of the many benefits of music. Music is a global, artistic language. Some studies suggest that it is older than speech and language, that they may have evovled from music!
Playing these instruments builds confidence because of how easy they are to play and harmonize with other instruments and people. This, in turn, encourages creativity and self-expression. They can also reduce anxiety, elevate mood, and relieve symptoms of depression. They are perfect in schools, daycares, senior adult care facilities, community centers, and even hospitals and outpatient facilities.
