The actual technique of singing from the diaphragm can boost your abdomen and back muscles. The movement of your facial muscles is also unique when you sing, which can make your face look more active and lively. Plus, the groups of muscles running between the ribs that help shape and move the chest wall–will receive quite the workout as well as you sing.

Learning how to play musical instruments for free or cheaper price – who wouldn’t love that?

But are you sure that it’s the best choice for you? Of course, in order for you to decide properly, you need more information about this. In fact, here we’re about to tell you a list of Pros and Cons of self-taught Music

Pros

Money: If you’re spending on lessons online, then it won’t cost you as much as paying for school fees. Sometimes, you don’t even have to spend a penny to teach yourself how to play an instrument.

Anytime you want: If you’re your own teacher, then you can arrange your study schedule according to whenever you like. Maybe you’ll be busy for these two whole weeks, so you can just do other things first, right? You can teach yourself later when you feel like it.

Comfort zone: You don’t have to show anyone how you can make mistakes in playing the instrument, so you don’t have to be embarrassed. You can show them how you play after you’ve mastered the skill, right?

Cons

Who will evaluate your work: What if you’ve made a mistake without even realizing it? Who will correct it for you? Even if you’ve come to realize your own mistakes, but don’t you think it will take sometimes for you to know that?

Procrastination: Remember, we’re only doing our homework because our teacher will check it. Without teacher and proper schedule, we tend to delay and delay our practice and lessons. We will just get back to practice whenever we want.

Demotivating: When you start to feel like you’ve lost track or you don’t know what step you need to take next, you might start to lose your interest. Gradually, you might end up choosing to cast your lessons away even though you know it yourself that you would love to master it.
