In an article by Dr. Alicia Anne Claire and Karl T. Bruhn the “Benefits of Group Music Instruction” (childrensmusicworkshop.com), it says that “Humans have the need to belong, to be a part of a group of individuals who share interests, and who come together for a common purpose. Such needs are as important to children and teens as they are to people in mid-life and to senior adults. In fact, it is being understood that this need for connection with others may be the most important component contributing to quality of life.”
