TOP 3 Reasons to take Piano Lessons
Playing piano has a variety of benefits, some in which you may not even know about. For instance, did you know that piano has been used to promote physical rehabilitation in people of all ages? Playing the piano enhances one’s musical, mental, emotional, and physical performance. If you’ve been wondering why your child, or even why you yourself, should learn to play piano, here’s a list of the TOP 3 reasons why to play piano that you may not have known…
- Pediatric researchers have found evidence that when a child begins learning piano, it stimulates the certain areas of the brain that controls a child’s speech, fine motor skills, and memory. That is why you have probably heard that children who take piano lessons growing are more likely to have better grades-particularly in the areas of math, science, and reading.
- Regardless of whether a music student is learning guitar, violin, or even singing, a piano is used at some point. Why is that you may ask? A piano contains the broadest range of musical tones being made up of 88 keys that make 88 pitches! This allows composers to write music for ANY other instrument, regardless of its pitch range.
- Piano is not just for children. In fact, adults receive the same physical and mental benefits from playing piano as children do. It has been documented that piano has been used to promote physical rehabilitation in people of all ages and helps prevent certain illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease.
