Why Learn How to Play Piano

Sep 16, 2008
To be able to play a musical instrument well is a very satisfying emotional experience. The experience is even more edifying if you are good enough to play in a good band or playing backing for a singer whether professionally or just for the fun of it. So, if you want to learn how to play a musical instrument, which instrument should you pick up?

Well, if you are asking me, then I would say, learn how to play the piano. The next question would then be, why should you learn how to play the piano as the first choice over so many other musical instruments?

Well, here are some reasons why you should pick the piano over the other instruments. See if you agree.

For starters, just like I said earlier, being proficient in playing a musical instrument is a very satisfying experience and that is why everyone should learn how to play at least one instrument and make beautiful music.

Playing the piano proficiently makes you feel and look sophisticated and elegant. For some unknown reason, a pianist just exudes some kind of elegant charm more than other musicians, don't you think so?

Furthermore, playing the piano keeps our brain active and our brain is actually doing mental exercises on all ten fingers when we consistently throw it the musical language to interpret. There are studies which show that pianists are more mathematically gifted too.

Also, learning how to play the piano can kill boredom. If you do not have anything to do, go and tickle the ebonies and ivories. Better yet, serenading to yourself while you are at it. Yes, I know you can do that with the guitar, but which instrument will produce a fuller and complete sound?

Perhaps you can organize family gatherings or entertain- your friends at a party with all of you having fun with you direct sing along sessions. That would be fun wouldn't it?

Also, in a strange way, some people will actually respect you more and even think that you are a genius. Many people actually admire someone who can play the piano well. Perhaps you too and that is why you want to learn how to play the piano.

A good pianist never quit learning. You see, there is absolutely no way to memorize every song and if you can play by ear, you are learning new tunes every time whenever you hear a tune without you even aware of it until someone ask you whether you can play a certain song and although you have never learnt that song before, the tune just pops into your head with your fingers running elegantly over the piano keys.

I supposed deep down in most people, they wished that they are able to play the piano. If not, why are you reading this article? Do you know that learning how to play the piano is one of the most common New Year resolution?

Learning to play the piano proficiently is also a fantastic ego booster. There's no better feeling like playing a difficult song effortlessly and flawlessly. If you are thinking of picking up a musical instrument, why not choose to learn how to play the piano?
