Why take piano lessons?
The piano is one of the most versatile instruments that exist. It can be played as part of an ensemble, but has also enough richness to be played as a solo instrument.
The piano is the ultimate instrument when it comes to improving overall musicianship. Not only is it incredibly fun to finally nail your favourite piece and play it in front of your friends. It is also incredibly beneficial for your cognitive abilities. Studies show that children who play the piano are performing better at school.
And also, it’s a great instrument to accompany your understanding of other instruments. For example, a lot of people who study the violin are also taking piano lessons because of the increased understanding of music that it brings.
If you’re not sure about what instrument to learn, the piano is a great instrument to start with. And even though you will end up playing another instrument afterwards, the time you have spent on the piano is not wasted. There are so many benefits you can take with you and translate to another instrument.
