Many words have been written on the benefits of music for adults and children alike. The love of music and early exposure to its affects on the developing brain has a huge effect on the potential of young people to thrive in many avenues. We evaluate 7 of these basic benefits in this article.

1. Self Discipline - Building self discipline enables people to realize the benefits of what is best for them, rather than giving into momentary weaknesses which my be detrimental to their well-being. Keyboard lessons involve learning time management (showing up for lessons on time!!! Whether with a tutor, or just turning up to your keyboard if your lessons are online or self-paced), self-knowledge (realizing what you really want and living up to your goals and values), having the courage to live up to your own ideals, to mention just a few of the traits required to build self-discipline.

2. Concentration - This is particularly hard for young children, who have so much else they want to do; keeping their attention on their lessons is a huge learning curve. Learning to direct your attention in whatever direction you desire is a skill which will aid you throughout a lifetime.

3. Attention to detail - The key to learning attention to detail is concentration. With learning the keyboard comes the need to learn theory of music as well, which means focus is needed to bring both the playing of the music and the ability to read music together.

4. Hand-eye co-ordination - the ability to co-ordinate information received through the eyes to control, guide, and direct the hands in the accomplishment of a given task can be translated to many areas of a child's development.

5. Self-esteem - learning how to play the keyboard and learn to read music has benefits for self-esteem, particularly in children. Learning to view yourself in a positive way and feeling okay about your own image enables young people to withstand peer pressure. It gives them the ability to stick to their own values and not be influenced into straying onto a path not in their best interest.

6. Sense of achievement - the opportunity which can arise to entertain family and friends, as well as play your instrument in a school performance brings a feeling of pleasure and accomplishment.

7. Self-Confidence - belief in oneself and knowing that you can perform in front of an audience is a great boost to your sense of self-worth, and the knowledge you can achieve whatever you set out to do.
