Rockaway Music offers private piano lessons at our location in Morris Plains, NJ. We teach all levels - from beginner to advanced.
A lot has been written about piano lessons for children, and the purpose of this article is to give you, the parent, useful information about this subject. Music is a wonderful and rewarding art, but it also provides many other benefits. If you're considering lessons for your child, you'll be amazed to learn the many benefits he/she'll receive by starting piano lessons early in life.
The benefits of piano lessons for children extend beyond music education. Kids who play musical instruments perform better in school and develop a better work ethic that lasts a lifetime. The piano is a wonderful instrument that can be fun, challenging, and promotes a positive response to your child. Moreover, he/she will carry these benefits through his/her adulthood life.
A new study by Frances Rauscher of the University of California-Irvine indicates that just a few minutes of piano practice daily will significantly improve your child's skills in subjects such as math and science. "Music instruction can improve a child's spatial intelligence for long periods of time-perhaps permanently," Mrs. Rauscher said.
When your child learns to play an instrument, he/she will be learning both art and math and would better understand the concepts behind science and engineering. Playing piano improves his/her motor skills and hand-eye coordination and general dexterity. Also, piano lessons for children enhance their spatial-temporal reasoning abilities, music appreciation, and self-esteem.
The piano would be an ideal first musical instrument for your child. The piano keyboard is easier to master at the beginning than other instruments. For instance, strings instruments such as the violin, require that your child learns to play the right note, no other strings, and to use the appropriate amount of low pressure and speed. A wind instrument such as the flute or saxophone would require that your child learns the right method of blowing through the mouth hole. However, on a piano if your kid hits the right note, a good sound comes out.
Piano lessons for children are a very significant part of their education. As you probably have noticed, the school system keeps cutting down on many musical and artistic educational activities. So it's up to you, the parent to provide this learning experience for your child.
Music lessons keep getting more expensive, but fortunately for you, today you have many choices available online. You can provide your child with quality piano lessons for a fraction of the cost of private lessons. Best of all, your kid can learn from the comfort of your own home. So get him/her started on an exciting and rewarding piano music journey!
