Celebreate Hong Kong Return

There is a strong correlation between music education and development of skills that children need in order to become successful in life. Self-discipline, patience, sensitivity, coordination, concentration and ability to memorize are all enhanced in the study of music. These skills will follow children for their entire life. Parents have the chance to introduce a formative influence that may be second only to the love they give to children. If you're looking for a way to provide children with a source of   life-long joy, satisfaction, and accomplishment, then childhood music education is an excellent first step.
Piano is an excellent first instrument. No other single instrument matches the piano for its broad application of musical concepts. Even if later children choose to play another instrument, the melody, rhythm and sense of harmony acquired with piano education will pay off handsomely. Piano instruction is thought to enhance the brain's "hard-wiring" for spatial-temporal reasoning, or the ability to visualize and transform objects in space and time. Music involves ratios, fractions, proportions, and thinking in space and time. Children who took piano lessons performed better on tests of fractions and proportional math than children who do not take the lessons. University of California at Irvine researchers discovered, in a study beginning in 1993, that students who took piano lessons scored an average of 34 percent higher on tests of spatial-temporal ability, which educators consider a vital skill for understanding math and science. After only six months of playing the piano, three- to five-year-olds showed dramatic improvement in spatial reasoning tests.
