About Wanna Play

Music is not only a hobby, it's a lifestyle. In fact, a stunning 85% of those who don't currently play an instrument wish that they did.

The Wanna Play? campaign from the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) was designed to educate people about how beneficial playing a musical instrument is, and to inspire more people–from children to seniors–to become active players.

Everyone knows that playing a musical instrument is fun and entertaining, but did you also know that music making is scientifically proven to benefit people of all ages?

It's never too early––or too late––to pick up an instrument. Music making is a passion that can last a lifetime and play an integral part in maintaining a healthy mind and body.

At age 5 or age 85, everyone can benefit socially, mentally and physically from playing an instrument.
