BENEFITS OF PLAYING PIANO

PLAYING PIANO INCREASES COGNITIVE SKILLS

The latest research in neuroscience shows that music education, and piano in particular, is a powerful tool for attaining childrens’ full intellectual, social and creative potential.

There’s growing scientific evidence that learning to play a musical instrument, piano in particular, can actually make you smarter, happier, and healthier. The cognitive development of learning piano could enhance everything from planning skills and language development to boosting memory and reducing anxiety.

It is easy to see that musically trained children are better able to distinguish subtle details of speech, leading to improved reading, better comprehension, and also greater ability to interpret the meaning of what others are truly saying.

"Learning to read music advances the development of speech and reading skills and multi-tasking."
“Children that learn piano show increased concentration and attention span for sustained periods of time."
“Learning piano helps children develop creativity and gain a sense of empathy for others."
“Piano lessons build crucial life skills like discipline and time management that have life long benefits."
