A recent MIT study on piano, determined that the cerebral cortex of a concert pianist is 30% greater in comparison to other non-musically educated intellectual people. Another study from California found that 75% of Silicon Valley CEO’s had instrumental music education as a child.
What does this mean? Piano is not only beneficial to learn at any age, as it increases memory and mental sharpness, but it also is enjoyable, rewarding, your ears love music, and your hands love increasing their manual dexterity. Too often these days, our two thumbs do the work of texting, and our index finger only makes repetitive mouse movements.
For those of us who do not have the desire to play piano or other musical instruments, the rest of us love listening to music while we work, study, or just relax to calming music online while at home. The piano is a centuries age-old instrument that has provided many music lovers joy, sadness, love and romance for the last few hundred years.
Sound is important to us all. It conveys what emotions we want to feel in the moment. It also helps us distract us from the negativity that surrounds us daily.
