My kids are addicted to FL Studio

Recommended Posts

My two boys have discovered a new passion: creating music using FL Studio.


I don't necessarily see anything wrong with this, however...


I wonder if the time they spend on this is time NOT spent on learning an actual musical skill (and should I care?). I think they are goofing around with beats, notes, and an unlimited supply of sound effects and putting them together in ways that sound good to them. So it's a fun creative outlet. But is it really just sort of a glorified video game, resulting in more time in the day that their eyeballs are glued to a screen with little developmental or educational value?


Or, is it contributing in a beneficial way to their musical, artistic or cognitive development, in a similar way to playing outside, painting a picture with real paper and paint, or tinkering with an actual musical instrument?


Any opinions out there?
