Taking Piano Lessons Adds Tremendous Qualities to your Child's Daily Life...skills they will keep the rest of their lives...Art Scott
When Children Take Piano Lessons, they learn far more than Music...
Back in the 1890's through the 1950's, the PIANO, the VICTOR VICTROLA, the Phonograph Record and the RADIO were the Entertainment Centers of every home here in America. There were no TV's, no Nintendo's, Computer games, Weii machines, etc. Families turned to live music in the home to entertain themselves.
People actually learned how to play the piano and sing around the piano. It was a family affair. Young people took piano lessons as part of their Education and Personal Enrichment.
Here we are in 2009 - and we need as a nation to get back to the basics. When your kids grow up they will need to have skills that will last them the rest of their life. Consider the list that I have compiled below.
How's this for the 8 C's?
Confidence - your child will be able to play with ease and confidence and be envied by their peers
Concentration - controlled studies have proven that children who take Piano Lessons
are able to accelerate beyond their peers in Math and Science skills; the brained is sorted in a such a manner that skills require thought and organization come with greater ease.
Coordination - eye hand coordination is developed to extremely precise movements, superior to skill of a Heart or Brain Surgeon - Pianists can close their eyes and play memorized pieces - try doing surgery that way.
Consistency - daily practicing renders great results. Children learn that if you put great effort forward towards playing and improving, great results are bound to happen.
Charm - when children develop their skills in playing the Piano, they learn a great deal in grace and charm and develop a taste for the finer things that life offers.
Conceptualization - complex skills such as note reading, understanding complicated rhythms, coordinating the hands to handle playing
Courage - children learn NOT to quit when the going gets tough. Tenaciousness is learned from the start of the very first lesson. Anything worthwhile in life takes stick-to-it ness.
Commitment - children will not be anymore committed than their parents are. Piano lessons should be just as important as every subject at school. The parent as to set the stage for this attitude to be really implemented. Homework is given and needs to be completed. Making a verbal commitment of one year of lessons should be done between a child and the parent so the young person will the process of lessons seriously and be prepared weekly for their teacher.
Many adults missed out on taking piano/keyboard lessons when they were a child.

"I have always admired the skill and expertise of
the professional golfer, Tiger Woods. Obviously his
parents and coaches played a crucial role in the
development of his great, natural skills. Music Education
is no different. The development of a child's talent is
solely at the mercy of caring and loving parents
providing private lessons so a child's 'raw' talent
can be developed to the fullest."
