Did you know that Mozart started playing piano at the age of 3? Truth be told, he was a prodigy but he definitely set the bar for piano players to come. It so happens that the best age to start piano lessons is typically between the ages of 6 and 9-years-old.
But, why is this the case? It's true that older students may have an easier time learning to play but students as young as 6-years-old can also learn since the keys of the piano are easy to operate.
At this age, kids have had a year of kindergarten and are used to adult-directed learning. Their brains pick up languages and build new connections at an amazing rate. Also, their hands are very flexible, but agile enough to start playing the piano.
If your love for piano goes beyond doing it as an amateur and you really want to consider playing piano as a career, there are many things you need to take into consideration before embarking in your musical journey such as:
That said, if you want to be a professional classical performer, you will need to undertake at least 10 to 15 years of concentrated study with a master teacher, and hours of practice every day.
It is well known that learning to play an instrument has positive repercussions and effects on the human brain and piano is not the exception. After as little as 5 months of playing piano regularly at a beginner level, researchers have observed positive changes in the power and structure of the brain. Also, these positive effects happen even when learning later in life.
This happens because learning to play an instrument increases motor control, listening, memory (especially of audio information). They also impact your ability to plan, your coordination, language skills, attention span and alertness.
On the other hand, since practicing and mastering a piano piece requires dedication and sustained effort, you will also increase your self-discipline and planning.
That said, another question that comes to mind is: does piano increase the IQ? According to research from the University of Zurich, regularly playing a musical instrument changes the shape and power of the brain. Apparently, musicians have structurally and functionally different brains when compared to non-musicians. In fact, it’s indicated that playing music can increase IQ by up to 7 points in both adults and children.
While the musical world might sound ideal and a lot of students will do whatever it takes to master piano theory, truth be told, not everything is as peachy when learning to play instruments.
Here are some cons of playing piano:
-Piano Lessons are a Big Commitment, you will need time, effort and patience, as well as many hours of practice.
-Pianos Are Big, Bulky, and Can Be Expensive
-Piano lessons are More Niche and it's hard to find good teachers.
-While a keyboard might be more accesible, playing the keyboard is not quite the same.
-Tuning the instrument can be expensive.
-Piano lessons can be expensive.
