Coordination

When a child plays the piano he or she learns the "Three C's" concentration, coordination and confidence. Of these three, the "middle C," coordination, is the skill that allows a child to fully develop his or her hand-eye coordination, improve athletic performance and stimulate the right and left sides of the brain.

Some people will tell you that coordination can't be taught. That you're either born with it, or you're not. Well, try telling that to a child who practices the piano. The concentration and pinpoint timing that go into learning a piece of music require quick reflexes and the skilled movement of hands, arms, legs and fingers. As the eyes move to read music, the brain is "conducting" the rest of the body to follow along closely, to coordinate many parts of the body and complete the task at hand.

In athletics, coordination is a combination of ability, timing and practice. This is also true in studying piano. The more a child is exposed to the training piano brings, the better his or her coordination will become. A child may not start hitting home runs from taking piano lessons, but he or she is bound to improve to the best of his other ability. This helps a child feel more confident about his or her athletic performance and enjoy the thrill of sports and competition.

Much has been said about the importance of developing the creative or right side of one's brain and the practical or left side of the brain. One way to insure a child has the chance to coordinate both sides of the brain fully is by having him or her take piano lessons. Here a child not only leans the "basics" but also has the freedom to let his creativity blossom. By coordinating the physical and mental faculties to their utmost, piano playing becomes a most valuable "exercise." .

When a child leans at the piano, he or she develops coordination of both mind and muscles, which transfers directly to many daily activities, including athletics, exercise, healthy living habits and being able to think faster and solve problems. Maybe that's why piano lessons allow a child to play music and the outfield to the best of his or her abilities.
