There are many benefits to taking Piano Lessons...
Learning to perform in front of your Teacher, an Examiner and potentially an audience provides a fantastic sense of achievement! This confidence can positively impact upon other areas of the performer's life such as in School or the workplace. Appreciating Music Through learning to play and improvise the student develops their musical "ear" and can in time much better appreciate music that they hear. Increased Social Participation Through Concert experiences and Workshops students meet other like-minded musicians and engage in new activities. Improved Aural Awareness Learning to really Listen to music and for particular elements within the music are key skills for musicians. Improved Concentration This is particularly relevant to younger students - Piano Lessons allow for an enjoyable experience utilising sustained concentration. Relaxation Many students play piano as a means of relaxing - a hugely beneficial benefit of learning to play the piano in our hectic modern world! Complements other musical learning Whether it be Singing or another instrument, being able to also play piano can greatly assist in perfecting new repertoire as not only can you play your "part" for yourself, but you will have a stronger musical understanding. Academic Benefits Grades 6-8 confer UCAS points which can be of benefit to students seeking to move on to study at University, these additional points can prove very useful. In addition, private musical study will be of huge benefit should a student wish to sit GCSE or A Level Music in School A Lifelong Love of Music We very much try to encourage a love of music, and whether the student continues to play piano through their life or not, it is hoped that a love of music in its many forms remains with them!
"The piano keys are black and white but they sound like a million colours in your mind."- Maria Cristina Mena
