WHY DO ADULTS TAKE PIANO LESSONS
This is what Sherri says "I have wanted to learn to play the piano since I was twelve (and heard a friend playing a song), but we did not have a piano. It is such a beautiful sounding instrument. When I had my own family and my daughters were of an age to take piano lessons (and we had a piano), I also tried to take lessons. But I couldn't do lessons for my three girls and myself too. So I put that dream aside for a while. Now that the girls are all out on their own, I have decided to pursue that dream. I love learning to play! I also feel like this is good for my brain (and I'd rather do this than crossword puzzles). ~ Sherri"
WHY PIANO LESSONS?

part of their lives.

over 80% wish they had learned.
And, two-thirds still want to do
-Piano is a skill that students can carry forward
into the rest of their lives
-Piano education builds important skills that can be carried
beyond the musical performance.
“In children, piano lessons actually build greater connectivity among the neurons of their developing brains, enhancing analytical ability, creativity and problem-solving. And piano lessons provide practice in important life skills such as breaking down a goal into smaller sub-goals, and persistence in a task despite challenges”
