Owning A Piano Enriches Your Life

Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.

 – Wassily Kandinsky


Owning a Piano enriches your life in so many ways. Not only does a piano look absolutely beautiful in your home, buying a piano has many benefits to your overall health & lifestyle. 


Owning a piano can improve your mental health 


Sitting down at a piano can help you express the mood you’re currently in and can be a cathartic experience. If you’re in a calm mood, you can play a calming, slow piece of music and feel an overall sense of peace, which has been proven to improve your sleep. If you’re feeling stressed, you can play expressively, which can help relieve some of the tension, and improve your mood. Playing piano has also been shown to improve memory in adults in as little as 6 months. Individualized Piano Instruction enhances executive functioning and working memory in older adults: Aging & Mental Health: Vol 11, No 4 (tandfonline.com) Playing the piano also builds good mental habits, such as concentration and focus. Playing the piano is often used as a therapy for ADHD  and other mental and behavioral conditions. 


Owning a piano can improve your physical health 


Not only does playing the piano improve your hand-eye coordination, it can also improve your upper body, leg, pelvic, & hand muscle development. It can also improve your dexterity with practice over time which helps your overall fine motor skills. Using both hands and your feet to make music helps develop multitasking skills that can be applied to other areas of your life. The University of Miami VITAL SIGNS: THERAPIES; A Fountain of Youth, in Music Class - The New York Times (nytimes.com) even conducted a study that shows adults who play piano have higher HgH levels than those who don’t.
