Proper and consistent musical teaching can:
- Develop and improve your child’s fine motor skills:
Proper technique for two hands to work separately but together, for fingers to press lightly or with more weight, for eyes to follow the written music while following notes and rests will develop motor skills that will be transferrable to many things later in life. Whether your child becomes a poet or a surgeon, an athlete or, we couldn’t leave this one off the list, a musician, they will forever benefit from learning to engage their fingers, hands, arms and bodies earlier in life.
- Help them learn creative problem solving:
Mistakes happen. A good music teacher will help your child address the wrong notes and help them assess the situation and work toward fixing it – creative problem solving. For beginners, this can be as simple as change a finger placement to hit the right note. Wrong notes happen. With more advanced students, the teacher will work on helping the student find the essence and form of the piece, dissect the beginning, middle and end, and find the right personal approach to the piece’s structure for each student.
- Reinforce self-discipline and patience:
We all wish we had more self-discipline and patience, why not help you child reinforce these while learning a new skill in a nurturing environment. Learning to play the piano will help with objective setting, keeping accountability, following through on pre-set plan, adapting to mishaps, building patience and self-confidence, all while working toward achieving a goal.
- Boost your child’s imagination
What is a piece of music? Objectively speaking it is a set of notes and rests with instruction on how to play it. Subjectively speaking it is a bird song, a rush of a river, a love ballad, a freedom dance, an exciting adventure from beginning to end. Great instructors will inspire your child to think about what each piece means to them and to write their own adventure.
- Make it a cherished family activity:
Many a morning, day and night is spent planning social activities for our kids. While playing music can greatly improve their social skills when playing with others (listening, waiting and harmonizing with fellow musicians), it can also bring you closer as a family. Your child will love showing off their new learned skills and showing off progress as they practice at home. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, neighbors alike will come together to see your child find joy in music.
