Why learn the pianoPlaying a musical instrument is incredibly rewarding and will provide many hours of enjoyment for the rest of your life. In addition, studies have shown that children who learn piano often exhibit more self-discipline and concentration; thus achieving higher results in school. Similarly researchers have measured strong changes in the brains of those who begin taking piano lessons, even after the age of 65.
