3. Piano Lessons are Educational – Research has shown piano lessons to have a great positive effect on cognitive learning. A study taken from McGill University in Montreal, Canada has shown that students who took piano lessons for 3 years scored significantly higher than their peers on tests. Students have also experienced better spatial cognition and skill in math and engineering. Researchers and Neuroscientists have discovered that the way the brain produces neural firing patterns (how information is distributed to and from different parts of the brain) is strangely similar to how music itself is structured. Quite remarkable!

4. Piano Lessons are Personally Fulfilling – Adults often enjoy taking piano lessons for the purpose of playing for relaxation and pleasure. Erika had the opportunity to teach an adult student who was a neurosurgeon. She was so thrilled to come each week to piano lessons and loved learning how to play. Piano lessons were the one thing she did for herself and enabled her to cope with stressful work situations. Since playing the piano is oftentimes relaxing, it can reduce stress and create a relaxed mood. Research from a Michigan State University study has shown that playing the piano can significantly reduce anxiety, loneliness and depression.
