5 Reasons Why We Love Taking Piano Lessons

A video posted by Angela (@onesmileymonkey) on

Our 4-year-old is near the end of the ten month Yamaha piano program at the Tom Lee Music Learning Centre in downtown Vancouver. We have seen a lot of improvement and we are very proud of his accomplishments. We actually ended up signing up for year two of lessons and we are excited about the future!

This month I wanted to put together a post with some of our top reasons why we love that our son is taking piano lessons:

  1. You just can’t help but admire someone playing an instrument, especially when that someone is your child. The feeling of seeing your little one playing a beautiful song is underscribable, sometimes it brings tears to my eyes!
  2. I love seeing his little face when he masters a song after working on daily practice. He is learning about hard work and the rewards of his dedication.
  3. Practicing the piano keeps his brain active and it is good for his motor skills, making his little fingers stronger as well.
  4. Piano playing is fun. He now practices multiple times a day and LOVES playing songs for friends and family.
  5. I take him to his piano lessons every week and we spend all the practice time together, we bond over playing and practicing piano and I love that the piano is our thing.

Thinking about signing your child up for piano lessons? Consider the amazing benefits of playing the piano!

  1. Music is such an important aspect of human existence; I wish more children had access to it and lessons at a young age. It helps with confidence, emotional growth, socialization, focus and responsibility and even intellectual stimulation and increase in IQ. Both my boys take a musical instrument (one is violin, the other is piano), and I play the cello and the drums. I do not know what I would do without music in my life.

  2. I can’t wait for my son to start taking piano lessons!

  3. Excellent job,he is doing so well

  4. Well done! I really enjoy following along on his music experience!

  5. The smile on your son’s face as he finished his ‘piece’ says it all. You can see the satisfaction and pride in his little face as he turns to you for approval. He seems to know that he has accomplished something very special, and Indeed he has! Congratulations to you both!

  6. Learning to and being able to play music is always such a joy for me. Glad your son enjoyed it

  7. Putting us in piano is always one of the decisions that I’m most grateful my mother made for us.
