Ability to handle stress
Music - the universal language
Music is part of everyone's life. The love of music transcends barriers - of nationality, of colour and creed, of gender, of class and of age. The study and practise of making music develops co-ordination, understanding, creativity, communication skills and confidence.
Your child could have…
…better academic skills…
…the skills employers look for…
…the ability to enjoy life to the full
Independent academic research in Britain, Switzerland, Hungary and the USA have all reached the same conclusion...
…Making music makes you smarter
Better results from schoolwork are not the only benefits that children gain from learning music.
Co-ordination and memory improve, and practice enhances self-discipline. Social skills are helped by working in groups, where team-work and interpersonal relationships are important.
Choosing the right piano
It is essential that the piano you buy will encourage your child to practise and most importantly enjoy playing. We understand how difficult it can be to decide how much to spend on your child's latest interest. Buying an old, inexpensive piano is a common mistake, as it will probably have poor sound quality and be uneven to play. In many cases this discourages children from playing as they find the piano so uninspiring. An electronic keyboard is a less expensive choice but fc may only last a few months as your child's progress outgrows the instrument.
Digital pianos are considerably better than electronic keyboards and they are a good starting point. However, they do vary in quality and depreciate in value more quickly than an acoustic piano.
The way forward
Encourage your child's natural interest as soon as possible — the earlier a child begins to learn to play a musical instrument the better. Playing the piano provides great pleasure as well as developing skills of life-long benefit -ensure your child has the chance — to learn to play and have fun. Try to position the piano in a social area of your home, as they will be able to share their new skill with you.
To encourage them further a good teacher can make a big difference to their development.
