Benefits of musical study: Research shows that children who study a musical instrument do better in school, have superior listening and coordination skills and improved memory. Playing the piano is a brain workout! Integrating three of your five senses while processing complex information, playing the piano has been shown to activate more portions of the brain than anything else. Because playing the piano is a complex skill, poor instruction can lead to frustration and quitting. Expert individualized instruction can lead to a lifelong avocation, an enhanced appreciation for music, and the discipline to approach the learning of any skill with confidence and tenacity.
