Benefits of Piano Lessons
A 5 year joint study by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the University of Southern California Brain and Creativity shows evidence of the benefits of music education for language development, speech perception and reading skills for children.
Science has shown that when children learn to play music, their brains begin to hear and process sounds that they couldn’t otherwise hear. This helps them develop “neurophysiological distinction” between certain sounds that can aid in literacy, which can translate into improved academic results for kids.
Regular piano playing sharpens fine motor skills and improves hand-eye coordination in the young and developing.
