Benefits of Piano classes:
1. Piano Lessons Help Children in School
The most talked about benefit children receive from piano lessons is that it also helps with their school lessons. Numerous studies available show children who play an instrument, score higher on both standard and spatial cognitive development tests alike. There are also findings that show kids who play piano, in particular, scored higher in math, especially on problems dealing with ratios and fractions.
2. Piano Lessons Raise Self Esteem
Learning to play the piano is hard work and takes dedication. Not only does each song mastered increase a child's self-esteem, but showcasing their newly learned talents at piano recitals can boost their confidence as much as winning a game in a sports competition.
3. Piano Lessons Increase Co-ordination
Increased hand-eye coordination is almost a given for children that learn to play the piano, but there is more than that. Kids who play the piano have improved fine motor skills since the piano requires both hands to work independently of each other, one moving fast while the other often moving at a slower rate. All of these things help to increase a child's overall dexterity and complex thought processes.
4. Piano Lessons Help Concentration
Reading a piece of music takes a great deal of focus, causing a student to interpret a note and a rhythm, translate it into hand movements on the piano and then immediately go on to the next one. Reading and playing music allows them to think both critically and creatively, which is a skill that will assist them in anything they choose to undertake in the future.
5. Piano Lessons Help students to be Well-Rounded
Regardless of whether a student plays the piano for a short time or for a lifetime, the long-term effects of their piano pursuance are many. Through playing the piano, people are exposed to classical music that they may otherwise have never heard. Kids may develop an appreciation for composers like Bach or Mozart that stay with them for life. In addition, the skills and knowledge people learn in piano may help them easily pick up another musical instrument later.
