“Pianos, unlike people, sing when you give them your every growl. They know how to dive into the pit of your stomach and harmonize with your roars when you’ve split yourself open. And when they see you, guts shining, brain pulsing, heart right there exposed in a rhythm that beats need need, need need, need need, pianos do not run. And so she plays.”
― Francesca Lia Block, Love Magick
This quote itself explains the magic piano can create. other than this fiction work, the recently Oscar nominated Movie – “La la Land ” has also got be infused with the amazing piano love..!! Infact that Miley Cyrus movie, sweet romantic one, The Last Song, that one too made me fall in love with the magical spell this musical instrument casts..!! so that’s why today i thought why not to consider this as a suggestion for our stress releasing and skill development activity.
And the kids out there, to the ones who love music, who fall for it everyday, every time they hear any note of any instrument, to the ones who wish to make their own music.. this is for you..!!
The most talked about benefit kids receive from piano lessons is that it not only helps them withe their emotions but also with their school lessons. Numerous Studies regarding Piano benefits show that children who play an instrument, score higher on both standard and spatial cognitive development tests alike. There are also findings that show kids who play piano, in particular, scored higher in math, especially on problems dealing with ratios and fractions.
Playing this grand this is in itself a lot of hard work and dedication, easing ones mind and channelizing ones energy, anger, patience, everything to a fruitful beautiful result. The understanding that mastering a new skill is a process that requires patience helps children to approach tasks with confidence, and not become discouraged or frustrated.
Participating in piano lessons, or even just performing in front of a group of friends, can help students deal with the symptoms of stage fright and daily school stress too. also through these recitals, the child will also learn to accept disappointments and successes together, even face criticisms for his/her own good.
All this will make him positive for lifelong, more confident and outspoken, more expressive for his thoughts and desires and more aware. So if you think you or your kid has that zeal, that passion for music and particularly for piano, then got for it..!! Don’t stop yourself.. Maybe this can turn out to be life changing for you..
To finally sum up the beauty and peaceful essence of this grand instrument, I would just like to quote – “The piano keys are black and white but they sound like a million colors in your mind.” by Maria Cristina Mena.
