Piano Lessons have a positive effect on young children’s development!
New research shows what piano teachers have been witnessing for years, that music has a positive influence on young children’s cognitive skills such as spatial reasoning and memory. Research also shows that providing children with a rich and stimulating environment involving all the senses, including the auditory sense, can support children’s healthy growth and development. Research has shown that children who are actively involved with music (who play piano or sing regularly): (1) Do better in reading and math when they start school (2) Are better able to focus and control their bodies (3) Play better with others and have higher self-esteem. The role of the piano teacher is to find a personal approach to each student in order to develop all of their capabilities.

Music and Memory and Intelligence Several years ago, an experiment was done which seemed to show that listening to classical music could improve memory! This effect has come to be known as "The Mozart Effect" because the musical selection that seemed to improve memory was a song by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Many people read about this experiment in popular magazines and newspapers and thought that listening to classical music would be a good way to improve memory and increase intelligence. Let's look a bit closer at the original experiment and other experiments.
The original experiment was published in the journal Nature by scientists at the University of California at Irvine in 1993. These scientists had college students listen for 10 minutes to either:
Mozart's sonata for two pianos in D major a relaxation tape OR silence Immediately after listening to these selections, students took a spatial reasoning test (from the Stanford-Binet intelligence scale). The results showed that the students' scores improved after listening to the Mozart tape compared to either the relaxation tape or silence. These researchers believed that memory was improved because music and spatial abilities shared the same pathways in the brain. Therefore, they thought, the music "warms up" the brain for the spatial reasoning test.
After 8 months of this treatment, the children were tested on their ability to put puzzles together (spatial-temporal reasoning) and to recognize shapes (spatial-recognition reasoning). The results were fascinating! They found that only those children who received piano lessons had improvement in the spatial-temporal test. Even when the children were tested one day after their last piano lesson, they still showed this improvement. So, the effects of the piano lesson lasted at least one day.

Politicians have even jumped on the Mozart Effect bandwagon. On June 22, 1998, the governor of the state of Georgia (Zell Miller) started distributing free CDs with classical music to the parents of every newborn baby in his state. I have a feeling that the governor has not read all the literature on the subject. The only study that has shown the Mozart Effect was done with college students.

A child's brains is shaped the most during the first 10 years of life. The younger the child, the more able s/he is to develop connections that may be used later in life. Reading to and singing with your child every day is a simple and effective way to help brain development. Research have indicated specifically links on the study of music and other art forms which is essential for brain development. One such research demonstrated that preschoolers who were given piano lessons and did group singing scored higher on tests measuring spatial reasoning (which is a skill used later in math, science and engineering). They found that music lessons resulted in higher spatial reasoning scores than equivalent instruction in computer skills.
