Builds Determination and Patience
Learning to play an instrument requires plenty of patience. The piano not being very easy to master teaches a child that there is no substitute for hard work and regular practice.
Builds Team Spirit
Piano classes can also develop your child’s social skills. It teaches a child to listen to others, pay respect to fellow tiny musicians, be attentive and become a team player.
Improves Mathematical Skills
Music and maths are closely related. A child grasps the concepts of fraction and division by understanding rhythm and beat.
The practice of understanding and remembering patterns is very beneficial to your child’s memory. Studies reveal that children who play the piano show better cognitive development than their peers.
Builds Dexterity and Strength
Playing the piano involves both hands. Learning to use fingers of both hands with equal ease, improves agility of the child’s hand and builds stronger hand muscles.
Improves Concentration and Hand-Eye Co-ordination
In these days of video games and information overdrive, many children display an alarmingly short attention span. Piano lessons may help them build focus, concentration and improves motor skills.
Learning to perform in front of an audience, even if it is a small one, helps prevent performance anxiety and builds confidence in a child.
Experts agree that five and a half or six is a good age to start learning to play the piano and it is never too late to start. Children below that age showing a musical aptitude and interest in the piano should be encouraged to explore on their own without frameworks. Rather than concentrating on one particular instrument their general interest in music should be cultivated.
