4 Benefits of Teaching Your Child to Play the Piano

Knowing how to play a musical instrument is a great skill to have and, believe it or not, there are many benefits your child can gain from learning piano. Here are four ways your child can benefit from learning how to play piano:

A Growth In Self-Esteem

Learning the piano can be a great boost to your child's self-esteem. It teaches them to tackle a difficult task, which becomes easier the more they work at it. As they improve, they'll also get a confidence boost from the praise given to them by friends and family. Studies show that kids with high self-esteem are more likely to take on challenging tasks to gain more knowledge as they get older, so learning piano is a great stepping stone for that.

Learning Fast

It's a known fact that children can learn new languages quicker than adults. The same logic can also be applied to music. Children can pick up on the subtleties of learning piano at a young age, such as tone and pitch. They can also learn the ins and outs of reading music better and faster than an adult would. Even on used pianos, children can easily understand music.

Better Grades In School

The time your child puts into learning piano can also help them in school. They can take the skills they learn by playing piano and apply them in other areas such as math, logical reasoning, and spatial awareness. According to Steinway and Sons. children with a few years of piano study under their belts have been shown to remember 20% more vocabulary words as compared to their classmates, so the piano is great for memory too.


If you've been looking at used pianos because your child wants to learn to play, it's a good investment of time and money. It's also a way for your child to relax. As they learn piano, it gets them an outlet for expression and relaxation; a chance to forget about everything else for a while and focus on piano.

Learning piano can be one of the most exciting and rewarding things your child can do. Not only is it fun, but it will help them in school, improve their memory, boost their self-esteem and give them an outlet to be creative. Check out our used pianos to find which is best for your child!
