Benefits of Piano Lessons

Child Playing Piano

"Music isn't just learning notes and playing them, you learn notes to play to the music of your soul."   — Katie Greenwood

"The main concern for parents should be to bring up their children as noble human beings. That is sufficient. If this is not their greatest hope, in the end the child may take a road contrary to their expectations. Children can play very well. We must try to make them splendid in mind and heart also."   —Shinichi Suzuki
