Why music and piano?

The joy to learn and play the piano, and soon being able to create music by ourselves, is much greater and more valuable satisfaction than just becoming simple consumers of low quality music and unfortunately often mediocre songs.  Performing either a simple melody, a jazz tune, or a Chopin waltz, or even accompanying (yourself or a friend) or playing hymns at church, provides great joy and a sense personal fulfillment. Playing the piano at any level surely fosters creativity and self-expression. It definitely helps to relax, fight stress, and socialize.  Taking piano lessons is one o the best ways to motivate children, to encourage self-expression, to create discipline and perseverance, a better focused concentration, as well as self-awareness, self-control, self-assurance leadership and many other important skills.

Sound like a wonderful but distant dream?  You can make it possible with the help and motivation of a competent and dedicated piano teacher combined with some regular and concentrated practice at home. Here is a favorite quote on music, spirituality, and children:

Of the arts, the most sublime, music.

“The art of music is divine and effective. It is the food of the soul and spirit. Through the power and charm of music the spirit of man is uplifted. It has wonderful sway and effect in the hearts of children, for their hearts are pure, and melodies have great influence in them. The latent talents with which the hearts of these children are endowed will find expression through the medium of music.” ~Abdu’l-Bahá, Paris Talks, p. 53.
