Piano Lessons with Autism and Developmental Delay
Learning an instrument such as piano, aids in neurologic, physical, academic and social development. Data has proven that making music engages multiple areas of the brain at once. It also creates neural connections between hemispheres and enhances connective neural tissue.
Piano lessons also encourage cognitive reasoning skills and attention. Children that play an instrument generally score higher on standardized testing in all areas. Piano lessons also help create a bridge to general education through opportunities such as school talent shows.
