WIN OR LOSE, CHILDREN SHOULD TRY PIANO

Whether or not they are destined to, or are planning to be, famous concert pianists, all children should try playing the piano, if they can find the right first teacher.

The child's first teacher is crucial, because the child will associate the piano initially with the manner of the teacher.

A friendly teacher equals a beginning of interest, whereas a stern teacher will intimidate most kids just at the time they need to feel comfortable. 

The benefits of a successful period of piano study for children are well documented, but what about the hidden benefits?

For example, regardless of their eventual success or failure at the piano, simply attending the lessons with a sympathetic adult may well be the first time a child has explored ANYTHING intellectually with an adult.

It's not easy for a child to weather a half hour alone in the sights of a demanding piano teacher, but, done the right way, such a half hour may be the beginning of the child's learning how to reason and solve problems. 

And the piano is nothing else but solving problems of every kind: physical, intellectual, aesthetic, emotional and organizational.

Thus the victory for the child is really to have attempted it, learned something, and come away from it wanting to know a bit more. Anyone who actually expects the average child to ever be a real pianist obviously hasn't been around many average children.

Yes, prodigies are different, but believe me, that is a fate you don't want to wish on your child. Better to have your child be simply interested. If more talent develops naturally and comfortably, you have a candidate for real piano study.

If not, as is true with 99% of children, you have what I call a "piano tourist," and if you have any horse sense at all you'll make that brief journey a pleasant one.
