Abstract
This collection of anecdotes and research shows the psychological and life enjoyment benefits that anyone can gain by learning and playing a musical instrument. It includes the author's personal experiences with learning an instrument, along with four interviews with musicians of differing experience levels, musical styles, and ways that playing music has helped their lives. The interviews range from a guitar teacher that's been playing for 25 plus years to a musician that spent six years touring. This thesis also examines the ability of music to soothe and calm, as well ass its potential power to change a person's life by eliciting commitment, devotion, and discipline.
