Scores of people want to take their love for music to the next level by learning how to play the piano. However, too many feel that they don’t have a natural ability or lack musical talent, and ignore the urge to sign up for piano lessons.
If you have a deep love for music — no matter if you are a senior, adult, teenager or a child — piano lessons can be a boost to your self-esteem and your social life. Making music can be a solo act, but it is often contingent on playing with other musicians and connecting with other people. It is often more fun, too! Learning a popular piano jingle comes with great satisfaction, like when you gather with friends and family around a piano. Now that’s priceless! 🙂
Piano lessons also can bolster your cognitive thinking and boost your brain power. Research published in 2009 by the Institute for Music and the Mind at McMaster University in West Hamilton, Ontario, shows a strong correlation between musical training for children and certain mental abilities. According to the study, a year or two of musical training can lead to higher levels of attention and memory.
In addition to stimulating your thought process, the style and genre of music you prefer adds a little excitement to your social life by bringing you closer to people of similar interests — those who share your same passions. Once you get started with piano lessons and are able to play a few notes you can learn and practice full songs with your friends if you like. Things to do now are endless. You may even head out to concerts and musical events together for inspiration.
Music brings people together and inspires self-confidence. This is just as true for children and teens as it is for adults. If you have always had even a small desire to learn to play the piano, you have little to lose and much to gain. Go for it. 🙂
