Character

What is character? It's the quality that's synonymous with honesty, self-discipline, dignity, respect and being well thought of. Most individuals who have "a lot of character" have developed this trait through hard work, being open minded and never running away from a challenge. Few people are born with character. Rather, it is that special something that is learned through doing. And one sure way to build character is by learning piano.

Taking piano lessons at an early age instills many character building traits in a child-perseverance, discipline, pride. When a child starts using all his faculties at once-arms, legs, fingers, ears, eyes, brain, he is developing his character. There is no easy road to playing the piano. But through persistence, a child makes progress, and from progress comes a feeling of satisfaction, of completing a difficult task.

Often we read about heroes who are the embodiment of character. Sometimes it is a sports star who overcame great obstacles and worked and worked until he reached a goal that at one time seemed insurmountable. In its own way, learning piano can turn an "ordinary" child into someone unique. As a child becomes motivated to take on the challenges that piano playing brings, he, in turn, develops valuable traits, such as character, that will last a lifetime.

All of us would like to be thought of as someone who has character. Someone who leads rather than follows. Someone who can both accept credit and admit defeat. A child who takes piano lessons gets a taste of what molds one's character. He may get a "high" from completing his first piece of music, but suffer a "low" when confronted with a more difficult assignment.

No matter how many emotional swings a child may feel from learning piano-in the long run, the results are positive. The child matures. He is able to solve other problems more quickly. He gets along well with his classmates. He has developed not only a range of musical skills, he has developed something that will stay with him forever;  his character.
