The keys to success
Learning to play the piano can be a very rewarding experience for children and adults who often see other areas in their lives improve in the following areas:
Improves vocabulary and other classroom skills.
Creativity and self-expression.
Helps children accept criticism gracefully.
Stimulates the brain, improving neural connections.
Improves language skills.
Firstly, the supportive and constructive environment a piano teacher provides can be great for your child’s behavior patterns. Over time, you may notice that their attention span for tasks increases and that they’re able to focus better.
Private piano lessons allow kids to develop both listening and communication skills as they take new concepts onboard, and express to their teachers what they might be struggling with.
While we’ve seen that piano playing has a wealth of direct benefits to young minds, the piano can benefit your child in other areas of their life too! This is especially true with their experiences and learning while at school.
Many children, especially younger kids, struggle with focussing at school. While the ability to keep on task often increases with age, the guided discipline of piano lessons helps fast track this for students, and often bring noticeable improvements to how they do at school in general.
It’s also worth noting the links between music and mathematics. Music performance, specifically, has been shown to enhance students’ ability to solve complex maths problems. This is because performing on an instrument, like the piano, reinforces the same part of the brain that is employed while doing numerical exercises.
At the school you will learn:
Finger control using specific exercises.
Reading piano notation.
Graded exams all the way through from preliminary to Grade 8 and beyond.
Music theory lessons are also available all the way up to grade 8.
Children aren’t the only ones who benefit from piano lessons. We are seeing more and more adults starting lessons. This includes those who are playing the piano for the first time, as well as adults who have taken piano lessons in the past and want to pick it up again. Instead of having only your child learn to play the piano, learning together is a fun option to consider!
