Playing a Musical Instrument Improves Memory

Learning to play an instrument requires you to use both the right and left part of your brain, therefore working your brain harder and improving your memory.

Maestro Eduardo Marturet who states, “…research has shown that participation in music at an early age can help improve a child’s learning ability and memory ” 

Scientists have even used music training as a method of neuro-rehabilitation to help improve the function of the brain.

6 ideal investments for beginners
  1. If you have a 401(k) or another retirement plan at work, it’s very likely the first place you should put your money— especially if your company matches a portion of your contributions.
  2. A robo-advisor. These services manage your investments for you using computer algorithms and typically costs 0.25% to 0.50% of your account balance per year.
  3. Target-date mutual funds often hold a mix of stocks and bonds and automatically invest with your estimated retirement year in mind.
  4. Index funds are like mutual funds on autopilot: Rather than employing a professional manager to build and maintain the fund’s portfolio of investments, index funds track a market index.
  5. Exchange-traded funds. ETFs operate in similar ways as index funds: The main difference between ETFs and index funds is that rather than carrying a minimum investment, ETFs are traded throughout the day and investors buy them for a share price, which like a stock price, can fluctuate.
  6. Investment apps like Acorns or Stash.
