9 Reasons To Learn How To Play The Piano

12 December 2020

In this week's post by musiconline, we have listed the benefits and reasons for learning to play the piano, which most people dream of and some people to make it real.


Most of us have wanted to learn to play an instrument. The adventure that starts with instruments such as block flute and mandolin in primary school that is often left unfinished. When we add many factors such as time constraints, not having the necessary facilities, and postponing desires, a distance is created between us and music.

The piano is one of the most well-known instruments, indispensable for almost every musical work that we know since the 1700s. In order to play this instrument, which has black and white keys with grand, electronic, and upright piano types that are known to almost all of us, we need a certain discipline, desire, maybe some skill and effort, just like in every instrument. If you have these certain criteria, which we also mentioned in our blog post titled Learning to play the piano, in our opinion, there is no reason why you cannot succeed.

So why do we want to play the piano? What does it add us learning to play an instrument? Let's take a look at the answers together;


Every person has some level of creativity, whether they are aware of it or not. Playing an instrument is an important gateway to art and creativity. The piano which is an important companion for composers, musicians in learning to read notes, theory, solfege, and harmony, helps you to create a connection between music and other forms of art and learning music itself.


The piano is an instrument with 88 keys on it, but it's not just that. The sound of every note you play can support the development of the ear. The chord structure learned in order, sound sequences, note order, coordination of the two hands, the different key structures of the right and left hand, significantly improve our mind, muscle structure, thinking ability, and practice ability. Discipline, persistence, a strong work ethic, critical thinking, artistic expression, self-awareness - these are just some of the benefits of learning piano.


Music is an important communication tool. Musicians use their voices, breath, or hands to put into music for many emotions that they cannot express with words. Sometimes tunes that exactly match what we feel are played to our ears. A song we come across on the radio takes us far. You can also feel and reflect the impressive power of music, which is a part of our lives as a listener, by playing an instrument.


The piano is one of the most suitable instruments to start music. Its button structure provides an important advantage in our learning of notes and our ear development. Besides, the fact that it is easier to learn than string instruments with its sitting position and hand control brings the piano forward in the first step to learn music.


When we start playing the piano, many innovations begin to enter our lives. If we have a good guide/instructor, we will begin to witness that historical adventure of music. Every new note and chord structure we know opens a new door in our minds. We begin to approach communication, cultural heritage, composers, musicians, and even those around us with a new perspective.


Although the piano is an instrument played by sitting, it improves the posture, sitting position, and especially the hand and finger muscles. Most instructors require specific stretching exercises before starting to play the instrument. This both helps us to develop our muscle structure and prevents the body from being deformed by staying in a fixed position for a long time.
Maybe it is time to start playing that instrument that we put in your mind in childhood and did not find a chance. If you are open to learning, you can make this dream come true by spending a few hours a week.


Although you can progress with keyboard or piano applications at first, you will need to get a piano at a certain stage. We recommend that you consult your instructor before purchasing, as the piano features, size, and brand you will purchase will vary. You can also get information about acoustic and electronic piano options and the maintenance required afterward by checking out our previous blog post.


The possibilities offered by technology are increasing day by day. It is now possible to attend music lessons anywhere you have the internet. Regardless of your age, you can start learning music from a point and contribute to your personal development.
