THE STUDY OF MUSIC has several benefits. The qualities developed in the study of music include commitment, coordination, perseverance, and discipline, all which are beneficial in other areas of life. Studies have shown that learning to play an instrument increases the number of working neurons in the brain and enhances the grades of students. Piano study accelerates the learning processes for all ages. The continued finger exercise is very beneficial for better dexterity for the older student battling arthritis. Learning to play an instrument also makes one a better audience member; one acquires a new respect and appreciation for a good performer.
I teach music not because I expect my students to become professional musicians, but because I want music making to be an enjoyable and motivating experience for the student. My hope is that my students will develop a love for playing and listening that will last a lifetime. For the school age student, learning to play the piano is a three way commitment: student, parent and teacher. I look forward to contributing my part in this learning process.
