Why Everyone Should Play Piano
 
The physical and mental benefits of playing music have long been recognized. The piano has been an unparalleled outlet for those seeking escape, creative expression, and simply fun and joy. 
 
In recent years we have seen even more evidence of the benefits of playing the piano, linking music to a healthy body, a healthy mind, and a healthy life.
It is proven that regular piano playing sharpens fine motor skills and improves hand-eye coordination. 
 
Research has shown that piano lessons for older adults slows the adverse effects of aging. Bringing music into your life is also proven to reduce anxiety, heart and respiratory rates, cardiac complications, lower blood pressure, and increased immune response.
 
Studying piano has also been shown to greatly improve memory for all age groups— particularly verbal memory — and build good habits like focus and perseverance, diligence, and creativity. 
 
For the young, those who have studied piano for a few years are found to do better in math and science than their peers. Regular music practice at an early age can even make structural changes to the brain that stay with you for the rest of your life, making your brain more efficient both while playing and in extra-musical endeavors.
