WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO TAKE SUMMER PIANO LESSONS ?

The advantages of taking summer piano lessons:

1. Summertime is a time when students can really focus on practice without the pressures from school.

2. Piano practice is a better pastime, than television and video games.

3. Children actually have the time to practice more and add new music to the repertoire list, learn new skills or try a new piano method.

The disadvantages of not taking summer piano lessons:

1. Taking summer off results in students failing to move forward with their playing.

2. Piano practice is a better pastime, than television and video games.

3. The teacher will try very hard to bring the student back to their previous level of proficiency, but the experience will be frustrating for students.  The teacher has to help the student stumble through things that they used to play with ease, having to re-teach old things without demoralizing the student.

and finally the big one!!!

4. “Use it or Lose it”. You have made a substantial investment in your child’s education. Many parents figure they will “save money” by stopping music lessons for the summer. This is actually quite a big short-sighted decision – because it is not taking into account the “attrition” of skills and techniques, and having to re-learn these things come Fall “Back to School” time. If you have to learn something TWICE you have wasted your money. Your child (and you!) have worked hard on their instrument all school year, and if they take all summer off from lessons they will LOSE IT because they didn’t USE IT all summer long.

Solutions:

Please take summer lessons as much as you can. Even a few odd lessons here and there throughout the summer will make a big difference!

Happy Halloween everyone, have a laugh!

Happy Halloween         HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE! Student to Teacher: “I can’t reach the brakes on this piano!” Why is an 11-foot concert grand better than a studio upright?  Because it makes a much bigger kaboom when dropped over a cliff. Why are pianists’ fingers like lightning?  They rarely strike the same place twice. Why was the piano invented?  So the pianist would have a place to put his coffee. The audience at a piano recital was appalled when a telephone rang just off stage. Without missing a note the soloist glanced toward the wings and called, “If that’s my agent, tell him I’m working!” What’s the difference between a piano and a fish?  You can’t tuna fish. What did a piano player say to a tightrope walker?  You better C sharp or you’ll B flat! Why was the piano player arrested?  Because he got into treble.

PIANO LESSONS MAKE YOUR CHILD SMARTER!

piano lessonsThere is  another very important reason for children to take piano lessons:

Recent study showed that after almost a year of weekly piano lessons, students’ IQs rose nearly three points more than their untrained classmates! The study supports the idea that piano lessons exercise parts of the brain useful in mathematics, language, spatial intelligence and other intellectual pursuits. Piano lessons, because there are so many different activities involved–such as memorizing, expressing emotion, learning about musical interval and chords–may be motivating the IQ effect.

Here is more about the study itself:

Researchers grouped together a few 6-year-olds for weekly piano lessons. Then another group was created to take weekly drama lessons. Last group of children was going to receive no classes during the period of the study. All children went through a long intelligence test that assessed them in ten different areas. Following that children went off to first grade at school and to their assigned piano lesson, drama and no lessons at all groups. After the first year of study all children were retested. At the time of retesting, all students displayed increases in IQ of at least 4.3 points, on average, which is a common result from attending a school. Drama class children`s IQs didn`t differ from those who did not take any lessons at all. Testing the piano lessons children researchers found a  slightly larger increases in IQ than the other groups, averaging 7-point gains in their IQ scores–2.7 points higher than children placed in either drama or no-lessons group.

The bottom line:

sing up your children for piano lessons, it will make them smarter and will support all learning!
