Welcome to You Too Music (YTM)
YTM’s purpose is to encourage ‘used to play’ adult musicians to rediscover their musical talent through curated workshops and events. These are designed to build confidence as well as musicianship in an unthreatening environment, and are easy to join to share the fun.
All instruments are welcome ! Grade 3 / 4 and higher is a target level for participation, but YTM can accommodate all those who want to learn again. An ability to read music can also be an advantage.
How playing an instrument benefits your brain
Making music is well known for its therapeutic and wellbeing benefits. This TED talk by educator Anita Collins explains the fireworks that go off in a musician’s brain when they play an instrument.
When you listen to music, multiple areas of your brain become engaged and active. But when you actually play an instrument, that activity becomes more like a full-body brain workout.
YTM has developed into a community of musicians who want to rediscover the joy of making music again.
