3 Reasons to Enroll Your Child in Keyboard Lessons, New York, New York

Learning a musical instrument has multiple, far-reaching benefits for children. Specifically, the keyboard is a popular choice among parents and children alike. Aside from giving your child a healthy and creative outlet for self-expression, attending keyboard lessons can have a positive, lasting impact on a child’s cognitive, psychological, and emotional development.

3 Ways Your Child Can Benefit From Keyboard Lessons

1. Improved School Performance

Keyboard lessons require a certain degree of concentration — a skill that can transcend into classroom learning and studying, too. Children must also practice coordination, as well as mathematical concepts such as ratios and fractions. Research suggests that students who engage in music classes, versus those who simply listen to music, experience improved neural processing, which could position them for better scholastic outcomes.   

2. Boosted Self-Confidence

From learning a new song to performing well in a recital, children who engage in rewarding experiences of playing the piano or keyboard can establish a greater sense of self-esteem. This sense of accomplishment can be carried out across many of life’s challenges during childhood, adolescence, and beyond.

3. Enhanced Appreciation for the Arts

Finally, keyboard playing will expose children to all genres of music, including contemporary artists and classical composers. This diverse range can teach children to appreciate various influences, and may also foster a lifelong appreciation for the arts in general. Moreover, having the ability to read music will make it easier for students to play other instruments later, if interested.
