Why is the Piano the Best First Instrument for Beginners?

If you're not sure which instrument is the best choice for your child, we've got some advice:

The piano is an excellent first instrument for beginners. For one, it gives you a solid foundation in music. You or your child will learn how to read notes and chord patterns; you can see, literally, a top-down view of harmony in music. This will certainly help with both the reading of musical notation and the understanding of music, and how it is made. You’ll also develop coordination and hand control skills - which are essential for any instrument later on. Lastly, the learning curve for drawing well-played, expressive sounds from the piano is not steep. It’s an easy starting point!

You can also gain other benefits such as:

  1. Increased brainpower and Cognitive function
  2. Self-expression and creativity
  3. Learning the importance of teamwork
  4. Patience and discipline through music lessons
  5. Developing coordination and focus through piano lessons
  6. Improving social and communication skills (like being able to play with others)
