Why study piano
 Academic and Cognitive Skills: Studies reveal that long-term piano study can lead to improvements in math, reading, language and reasoning skills. It can also lead to enhancements in creative and problem-solving skills, concentration, discipline, and memorization.  
Emotional Skills: Studies have revealed that long-term piano study can lead to an increase in self-esteem as students persevere through short-term and long-term challenges to achieve their goals. Music is a natural form of expression and many students have stated that playing the piano is one way that they are able to express themselves and their emotions. Additionally, playing the piano is an enriching and therapeutic activity that can lead to a life-long appreciation of music and joy.
Performance in front of an audience develops self confidence and can improve public speaking skills in the future.
Physical Skills: A piano student learns to read two lines of music, use both ears, arms, legs, feet and all ten fingers, with the brain giving each body part a different assignment to perform simultaneously. No other activity allows a child to exercise all of these skills in such a constructive manner.  Piano lessons, therefore, develop coordination in both mind and muscles, which transfers to many daily activities. This includes improved hand-eye coordination, greater enjoyment and ability in sports, and the full use of both left and right sides of the brain. 

Something to think about: 
Here is  another proof of the importance of music education, particularly individual instrumental lessons:
Thomas Sudhof, who shares this year’s Nobel Prize for medicine and physiology, told The Lancet in August 2010 that he owes his powers of analysis and concentration to studying a musical instrument.

Is music the key to success?
