It has been scientifically proven that music has numerous benefits on a child’s development with the most prominent benefit being the development of a child's brain. Bring to light the 3 key benefits of playing the keyboard for your children this new year.
Creativity and Self Expression
Creativity and self expression is used by children to navigate the world in which they live. Enriched imagination allows one to develop social skills, learn language, and build confidence. Playing the keyboard allows for your child to not only learn already existing music but also acts as an avenue to conceptualise their own unique sounds and melodies. Children are able to easily resonate with these sounds due to their limitless imagination. Practising creative thinking as such allows for a strengthened ability to solve complex problems with creative solutions.
Strength training for the brain! Exactly as we know it, playing music allows for the nerve fibres that connect the brain to be strengthened. Resulting in children developing stronger memory skills later on.
Behavioural and Social Benefits
With time and discipline the famous term "Practice Makes Perfect" comes to light with playing the keyboard.

In addition to this playing a musical instrument allows for children to have an additional layer of skill that they are able to both connect over and enjoy playing with others who align on the same interests.
