Stay-young tunes

Interesting article I read about the benefits of playing music.

"Play a musical instrument and it could help keep your memory youthful and your hearing sharp! A study at Chicago's Northwestern University in the US found musicians are more likely to keep their memories active and hearing intact as they age. Learning music fine-tunes your nervous system, enhances listening skills and helps combat age-related communication problems, say the researchers."

Hmm I guess I had better start choosing a ukulele or else its a case of dusting off the old school recorder!
