For one, studies have shown that when people learn to play the piano, their stress levels drop and their happiness increases. There’s a good reason why people have been playing the piano for hundreds of years. Piano music has influenced every genre out there from country to pop to classical to rap to metal. But did you know it can even sharpen brain function? According to cognitive experts, regular play stimulates the brain and helps retain memory. It’s a great exercise for the brain and can help keep you sharp!

Playing music, especially the piano, can boost your mental, emotional, and even physical health. According to some experts piano sharpens fine motor skills, improves hand-eye coordination and overall dexterity. It may even reduce the onset and impact of cardiovascular issues, respiratory problems, and more.
And unlike some instruments that require a lot of equipment and/or a backup band, playing the piano is ideal for an individual. So, there’s no better instrument to play during a time of social distancing.

And, these are just some of the benefits to playing your beloved piano.
