It is the beginning of September, and at least at our house, the beginning of Fall! My daughter always insists that just because we live in the furnace that is Texas, after Labor Day, it is time to decorate for Fall. I have ceased to fight the fight, so now my house is overflowing with Fall goodies and decorations. The studio is flocked with autumn flowers and scarecrows, and soon we will begin playing songs about the fall season, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. It is always a pleasure to see our kiddos return back from summer vacation, and to welcome our newest students. Our students are always eager to begin learning. Our adult students are just as excited to start piano lessons. Some began piano when they were little people, but stopped lessons for various reasons; others have always wanted to play piano, but were unable to take lessons when they were younger. Some of our students, both children and adult) are beginning or returning to piano lessons due to health or memory issues. Playing piano is a creative art, but it is SO much more than that! Children and adults benefit from piano lessons. Playing piano helps with memory issues, concentration and verbal skills. Little ones who are hyperactive learn to better concentrate while learning to stay in one place for an extended time. They also learn over time that some of their excess energy and emotions can be "played" into the piano. Grownups with slow memory problems, benefit from a little "brain exercise". Playing piano is a lot about memory, and so all ages "exercise" the memory banks by learning to read music and remember notes and rhythms. Playing piano can also be a stress reducer for all ages, and can help to lift depression, anxiety, and fatigue. it aids in building muscles to the hands, fingers, and arms, while helping with eye to hand and hand to foot coordination. Piano lessons even helps with verbal communications, as we learn to express timing and musical expressions, as well as creative interpretation. Piano lessons can alleviate symptoms of arthritis, stroke, or brain injuries. There are enumerous benefits to learning to play the piano. Of course, the #1 benefit is playing the piano! Fall is a time for new beginnings, so let's hesitate no longer. Let's play piano!
