PianoFest continues though Tues., May 15

How many people say, “I wish I had learned to play,” or, “If only I had kept it up…” Playing the piano is a gift that truly offers immeasurable lifelong benefits.

It is no secret that exposure to music and learning to play an instrument enhances a child’s ability to learn and improves their academic performance across the board. In today’s competitive world, you want your child to have every academic advantage. Additionally, learning to play the piano provides a skill and a pleasure the child will enjoy throughout their life.

Also, access to a piano allows one to escape the stresses which assault us each day. Evenings spent playing your piano reap many more benefits than will vegging out before the TV. You not only fill your home with music, but gain from a relaxing activity.

Studies on seniors point to their enhanced retention of memory, skills and cognitive abilities for those who continue to play the piano.

Of course, the sound of a quality piano inspires one’s life in ways which are not quantifiable on a chart. When you play, you just know your life is enriched by hearing and creating great music, whether it is Beethoven, Satie, Gershwin, Cole Porter or Elton John.
