Why The Piano Is Still An Important Part of Every Home

2020 has changed our lifestyles in so many ways. We’re living in a before/after world. 

Before, we came and went to activities freely. We overbooked and stayed busy night and day. 

After, we’re more conscious about what fills our days. Without the ability to go places, we pay attention to everything we do. 

We’re asking questions like never before. 

Is this something I really want to do?

And in a lot of cases, that’s bringing us back to the simple things in life. 

Like playing the piano. 

There used to be a time when every home had a piano. It would often take center stage in the main living area. People would gather around it to be entertained. Kids would learn how to play from a very young age. 

There are benefits to that. 

Playing the piano as a child teaches many things. It helps with the brain’s development, increases language skills, creates a more active brain with better memory skills, and helps control stress and anxiety. It gives kids a confidence boost and makes them a better team player. 

More students that move on to medical school have a background in music than in any other major. 

It helps in all aspects of life. What’s more, it’s a skill that a person will hold onto for life. 

Before, when parents were busy running every day of the week, encouraging children to stick with piano lessons was difficult at best. That’s changing. 

As you create an environment that centers on less stress in your home, maybe it’s time to get back to the simpler things in life. Things that matter most. 

Maybe it’s time to invest in a piano, one that will take center stage in your family room. One that will become a bigger part of your life. 

There are many ways to learn to play – try an app, or a Zoom lesson with a pro, or use a digital system to invent your own music. 

Investing in a piano today is one of the best gifts you can give your family.
