Wanna Play Music?

Have you ever wished that you could play an instrument, but just haven’t taken the time to learn?  Did you play as a child, but find that “life” somehow happened and took you away from playing music?

Well, then you should know that May 2-8 is National Wanna Play Music Week and we dare you to participate!  The  National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) has dedicated an entire website to the Wanna Play Music? cause, where you can learn about the scientifically-proven benefits of playing music, peruse the massive list of celebrities who engage in music activities, and best of all, learn how to get started (or re-started) with playing the instrument you’ve always wanted to play!

Perhaps the most inspiring aspect of this are the many pages of stories that participants have shared on the website, telling of their own experiences with learning a new instrument.  One of the more notable quotes comes from Breon Canady from Detroit, Michigan:

“I play music because its a unique joy. A joy you don’t get when playing sports, or getting an “A” on a chemistry test.
Music is what runs through our veins.
Music is not only fun, but exercise!
Conveying different moods and feelings with music is the best feeling ever.
Music is my language.  I speak it.  I breathe it.  I play it.  I bleed it.”

So we will ask you once again… Wanna Play Music?
