8 Reasons why you should learn Piano

  1. Learning to play piano will give you the ability to play your favourite songs anytime you want!
  2. Learning to play piano makes you a versatile musician. The piano is the only instrument that allows you to play multiple notes simultaneously with great ease. This means that you can perform really nice renditions of songs from any genre. This also makes the piano an ideal instrument for composing since it basically acts as a small orchestra.
  3. Learning piano teaches anyone how to extract ideas from a song and then apply it in totally another context.
  4. Pianists never quit learning. why?  – There’s absolutely no way to memorise every musical piece on earth.
  5. Learning to play piano will allow you to listen to music with greater enjoyment and appreciation. Since you will learn how songs are put together, your listening ability will become more refined. You will start to hear and notice more distinct details in the music that you listen to. Songs that you have been listening to for years will seem richer as you hear nuances that you have never noticed before. You may also start to enjoy songs from other genres of music that you would normally never listen to.
  6. The piano provides both melody and harmony, therefore it can be played solo without any accompaniment. This is not the case with many other musical instruments (like the clarinet or violin which only produce one line, usually the melody line, so an accompaniment is always needed).
  7. Mastering the piano requires a tremendous amount of co-ordination. so this can cultivate many useful mental skills.
  8. Piano playing keeps your brain think in specifics and in contexts – ”THE KNOW HOW” of when to play what kind of music

  1. I like that you point out that learning to play the piano will allow you to enjoy music more. I have been playing the piano for 10 years. Because of this, I really enjoy listening to the cords of the songs I listen to. The songs aren’t just noise, but rather organized noise with purpose and meaning.
