What will I learn?

As a matter of fact learning piano has been an activity carried out by many high-succeeders in history. It has been a fundamental subject in the education of the upper classes internationally and it is scientifically proven to change the way you think and interact with your pairs.

Learning how to play the piano under a qualified piano teacher helps you developing massively certain aspects of your professional performance.

We could mention...

Better Response to Criticism
To get the most from this benefit of playing piano, it’s important to work with a qualified piano teacher who is able to give you constructive criticism. When you see your teacher as an expert in the field, it’s much easier to take their advice and feedback. And this ability to respond to criticism – and learn from it – will typically carry over to other aspects of daily life and work. You will be become more patient when listening to your colleagues opinions and you will also start to see the benefits of receiving constructive feedback.

Improved Ability to Handle Stress
Participating in piano recitals, or even just performing in front of a group of friends, can help you deal with the symptoms of stage fright. Plus, all of the practicing leading up to the performance will help you learn about dedication, self-discipline, and the goal-setting process. Mainly, you will be developing your intellectual resilience and endurance.

Learn to React Well to Successes and Disappointments
This is another skill you will gain from performing, especially if you participate in piano competitions. Similar to learning how to respond to criticism, you may experience some disappointment along the way. A good piano teacher will help you learn how to maintain a positive outlook, even when things don’t go your way. And when they do, you can celebrate your wins together!

Increased Social Participation
The ability to play in front of a group is an important social skill. It’s a great way to share your talents with others, and you may find yourself expanding your network as you put yourself out there in the musical community. Discussing your piano playing with other musicians is a wonderful way to improve your understanding of the instrument – plus, you never know how your connections can help you later in life!

Split Concentration
When you’re first starting to learn how to play the piano, it can be incredibly frustrating to coordinate your two hands each playing something different. But the more you play and practice, the easier it will get. Even simpler pieces can teach you the skills and focus you’ll need to improve your skills.
Split concentration is not just a physical ability; you can also use the skill for listening. If you’re taking lessons with a piano teacher, you’ll likely learn how to listen to the sound of your playing as if you were both in the front of the concert hall and to the back of the room. You can use the mental part of this training in everyday life to improve your multitasking skills.
