Why should you give the gift of music to yourself, your child, or a loved one?

Because playing the piano can bring joy, confidence, relaxation and a sense of well-being to one’s life. Additionally, research has shown a relationship between musical training and increased cortical thickness. Learning to play the piano helps to develop coordination in both the mind and muscles. Practicing the piano helps to improve focus, concentration, memory skills, verbal skills, and hand-eye coordination. In an article by Tom Barnes for the Washington Post, Mr. Barnes writes that “providing children with high quality music education maybe one of the most effective ways to ensure their success in life.”
