- Piano Lessons Raise Self Esteem
Playing the piano helps children to learn how to keep a positive outlook when facing difficult tasks. The understanding that mastering a new skill is a process that requires patience helps children to approach tasks with confidence, and not become discouraged or frustrated.
- Piano Lessons Increase Coordination
Children who play the piano have improved fine motor skills and, unlike other instruments, the piano requires both hands to work independently of each other, one moving fast while the other may be moving at a slower rate. All of these things help to increase a child’s overall dexterity and complex thought processes.
- Piano Lessons Help Children to Concentrate
Reading a piece of music takes a great deal of focus, causing a child to interpret a note and a rhythm, translate it into hand movements on the keyboard and then immediately go on to the next one.
- Piano Lessons Help Children to be Well-Rounded
Children may develop an appreciation for composers that stay with them for life. Also, the skills and knowledge they learn in piano may help them easily pick up another musical instrument later.
