Benefits of Piano Lessons

 

 

Studies show that piano lessons provide a great range of benefits for children.

You might be aware that studying piano develops valuable skills in concentration and discipline in children, along with the ability to pick up other instruments quickly and easily. But did you know that recent studies have shown a range of other developmental and educational benefits for children as well?

Developmentally, studies have shown that taking piano lessons raises children’s self-esteem and co-ordination ability significantly. It follows then that educationally; children who study piano will also be better off. This has been shown to be true, and in one particular study from the University of Wisconsin*, preschoolers who received piano lessons scored 34% higher in tests measuring spatial-temporal reasoning, than those who participated in non-musical activities such as sport.
