A musically inclined child has so many advantages. You will never run out of research to back up this claim. Let me just narrow down 5 reasons your child should take piano and keyboard lessons. By the way, I mentioned piano and keyboard lessons because not everyone can afford the real thing and a keyboard is a very convenient alternative to a piano.
1.It develops character
Learning how to play the piano takes a lot of patience and hard work. If your children are exposed to this kind of training at an early age, it will build their character. They will learn to push themselves even when they are tired or feeling lazy. They will learn to honor commitment at a young age.
2.It helps children to focus
We all know that children have a very short attention span but children who are into piano lessons have to be able to focus and concentrate on the task at hand. This trait will be carried on to other tasks at school and even at home.
3.It is a good way to improve reading and listening skills
Children who are taking piano and keyboard lessons improve their reading and listening skills because they have to be keen on the lyrics, the notes, and the melody. This helps them to become very good at listening.
4.It helps children to become sensitive to feeling and moods
Children who are taking piano lessons are taught to be sensitive to changes in the tones, volume, and melody. These changes mean different emotions or change in emotions. With this training, children become sensitive even while not playing the piano. They get to use this too in day to day life.
5.It builds their self-confidence
As your child improves his skills so will his self-confidence build. When they achieve small things through piano lessons, they learn to trust their skills and ability.
