Piano lessons are one of the best activities, studies, for children and adults alike. Research shows the amazing physical and mental effects on the brains of those who studied and played the piano. The results of this activity are well-documented: increased nerve fibers connecting the two sides of brain for better coordination, self-discipline and ability to focus and concentrate on achievement of tasks, improved math and reading skills, and many advantages. As a brain surgeon stated, if he had a child he would have the child take piano from as early as three years of age.
The rewards of music lessons are far reaching. I encourage students and parents to place a high priority on scheduling piano lessons and practice time into the busy weeks ahead. For those who are contemplating this commitment, I assure you the end result should prove well worth the effort and expense.
Please check back here as I will be writing more blogs concerning the study of music and the piano in particular.
