Have you always wanted to play the piano? Perhaps you began learning as a child and regretted giving it up. Nothing matches the joy of playing this lovely musical instrument. It’s never too late to learn and now is the ideal time to start because it is such a helpful hobby in challenging times.
Learning to play the piano online is easier than ever and provides several advantages, especially during the lockdown and coronavirus restrictions. You don’t even need to leave the house to learn, and online learning enables you to learn in your own time and at your own pace. It’s also possible to join the lessons from any location.
Playing the Piano Brings Health Benefits
Playing the piano is not only the perfect hobby, especially during the pandemic when you have extra time on your hands, it also offers various health benefits. These include:
- reducing stress and depression
- improving self-esteem with the confidence gained from learning a new skill
- helping dexterity and hand-eye coordination.
Playing the Piano Can Increase Your IQ
A University of Zurich study showed that playing a musical instrument changes the shape and structure of the brain, improving brain plasticity and cognitive function. A psychologist who conducted the study said that learning to play a musical instrument can increase IQ in adults by seven points.
Piano Playing Improves Your Memory
Studies also show that playing the piano improves the health of seniors. One study concerned a group of adults aged 60-85. They demonstrated improved processing speed and memory after just three months of weekly 30-minute piano lessons and three hours a week of practice, when compared with the control group, which showed no changes in these abilities.
