BENEFITS OF PLAYING PIANO



IN CHILDREN
Studies are showing that learning to play  piano can bring significant improvements in your brain. 
It gives children an advantage in the development of their intellectual, perceptual, and cognitive skills. According to the studies, just one hour a week of learning music is enough for the full brain benefits to take place – including an all-round boost in language skills and a significant increase in IQ.

IN ADULTS
Recent studies suggest that music enhances cognitive function and promote healthy aging. Playing an a musical instrument such as piano throughout life is associated with a lower risk of developing dementia. This has been attributed to the ability of musical training and performance to increase the resiliency of the brain. 
Studies have shown that people who took lessons at some point in their life, have better cognitive function, with better performance for object-naming, visuospatial memory and rapid mental processing.
These studies suggest that it is never too late for the brain to benefit from the powers of music, and the more actively one engages in music-making, the greater the powers become.

GROWS YOUR BRAIN

Harvard neurologist Gottfried Schlaug found that the brains of adult professional musicians had a larger volume of gray matter than the brains of non­musicians had. Schlaug and colleagues also found that after 15 months of musical training in early childhood, structural brain changes associated with motor and auditory improvements begin to appear.

Still other studies have shown an increase in the volume of white matter. Such findings speak to the brain's plasticity—its ability to change or adapt in response to experience, environment, or behavior. It also shows the power of musical training to enhance and build connections within the brain.

HIGHER IQ


The researchers at Boston Children’s Hospital conclude that children and adults with extensive musical training show enhanced executive function when compared to non-musicians, especially for cognitive flexibility, working memory, and processing speed.

Most parents want their children to be intelligent and successful. And while some experts have pushed parents to teach their children coding, new research is pointing to music as the gateway to smarter kids.
