Why should you care that Pianokids lessons can teach your child starting at 3 years old? We could go on and on about the great benefits that music has for us all, how it stirs the soul and much more, but why start a child so young?
Until now, parents have been told to wait until their child can read, or when their fingers were more developed, suggesting that around 6 yrs of age is an appropriate time to start applied piano lessons. Yet neuroscientist today tell us how the important relationship between practicing music and cognitive development is most effective before age 7. Why? Because music increases the pathways and connections in a child’s developing brain, which allows it to function far more efficiently like no other single activity. And when started early enough, has a lasting effect for the rest of our lives.
The Pianokids method is one of few, if any, age appropriate piano programs with a proven track record of teaching children, starting at age 3 (with some of our students starting as early as 2 years 10 months), to develop their musical aptitude, or the ability to be successful with music. This progressive success brings about the physical, social and academic benefits that is crucial for overall development.
Understanding the important developmental benefits that music produces for your child, and knowing that there is a proven piano method to start their musical adventure, what more could parents want for their young child?
