That's why Music for All has launched its new #444 initiative to raise much needed funds to support those with financial or access difficulties to making music.
Taking inspiration from music (did you know in today's music chart most songs can be played using just four chords), donating £4 and encouraging 4 friends to do the same, the charity is encouraging music lovers across the country, no matter what their capabilities, to get involved and spread the joy of music whilst helping others.
Taking part in #444 is easy, simply:
Record yourself playing at least one minute of your favourite piece of music and post it on social media - remember to tag @musicforallcharity and include #MusicforAll and #444challenge.
Tag/nominate four friends to take on the challenge
Paul McManus, CEO at Music for All, said:
"Those already playing music know the enjoyment and life affirming qualities it can bring to our lives especially during these isolating and scary times.
"Even those who don't play will undoubtedly have been listening to and enjoying music more.
"Our new #444 campaign will not only spread the joy of music and celebrate musicians' performances, but also help us continue to support the many who simply can't afford or don't have access to musical instruments and lessons."
Money raised from this initiative will be spent on instruments and tuition for disadvantaged individuals of all ages in the UK, as well as supporting community music groups and educational organisations in the UK.
Music for All is also keen to highlight the numerous health benefits that playing music brings.
"There's no doubt that making music, alone or in a group, can improve your emotional and physical health and stimulate your mind.
"Whether you're starting from scratch, trying to improve neglected skills, or a seasoned pro, we hope that everyone joins in with our #444 campaign and reaps the benefits while helping the many that are less fortunate than them."
