PIANO FOR BODY, MIND AND SOUL

There has always been a recognized trinity between the mind, the body, and the therapeutic qualities of music. And the piano, specifically, has been a long-recognized source of remedy for those seeking escape and creative expression. But recent years have also offered a wealth of scientific studies that demonstrate our instincts have always been correct: playing the piano offers proven benefits—from physical and intellectual to social and emotional—to people of all ages.

LET’S GET PHYSICAL

The physical benefits of piano playing are even more far reaching. Mitchell Gaynor M.D., in his book Sounds of Healing, demonstrates that music has therapeutic physical effects including reduced anxiety, heart and respiratory rates; reduced cardiac complications; lowered blood pressure; and increased immune responses.

KEYS TO BETTER THINKING

In a study conducted by E. Glenn Schellenberg of the University of Toronto at Mississauga in 2011, researchers split 132 first-graders into four separate groups for after-school activities. One group was given singing lessons, one was given drama lessons, another piano lessons, and the last was offered no after-school instruction. All of the students’ IQ’s were evaluated at the end of the year. Those who participated in the piano lessons saw an IQ increase of 7 points, while the other groups saw an increase of 4.25 at most. The researchers concluded that the fact that piano education requires one to be focused for long periods of times contributes to the greater IQ gains in the piano-playing group.

How to determine which violin is right for your Child ???

Your child does not have to be a prodigy to enjoy playing the violin. Studies have shown that children that learn to play an instrument early on actually do better with other subjects in school.

There is evidence when a child can play an instrument they excel in the hard science subjects like math.  Buying your child’s first violin is serious business since it will affect not only their love of music but also how much they gain from having the violin.

There are a few things you should keep in mind when you are searching for the perfect violin for your child:

  • Size matters
  • Even a prodigy has to start somewhere
  • Hang on to your money and don’t go overboard
  • Invest in a complete outfit it will save you money

The size of the violin and the size of your child matter when you are choosing a violin. For instance, if you have a 7-year-old that is big for their age then you may want to consider a size that is more appropriated for a 10-year-old than for a 7-year-old.

If your 10-year-old is a small 10-year-old than you want to look at a size that is more appropriate. Typically, 10-12 year olds and above play full size adult instruments, while children under 10 or of small stature will play the smaller sizes.

Size matters when it comes to the child’s ability to handle the violin comfortably. When we considered the 7 best kid’s violins reviews we looked at different size groups to give everyone a good sampling of what is out there.

The right sized violin at the right price is a great find so we tried to offer you a full range of sizing and prices.

Let’s Play Cajon

The cajón is the most widely used Afro-Peruvian musical instrument since the late 16th century.Slaves of west and central African origin in the Americas are considered to be the source of the cajón drum. Currently, the instrument is common in musical performance throughout some of the Americas, the Philippines and Spain. The cajón was developed during the periods of slavery in coastal Peru. The instrument reached a peak in popularity by 1850, and by the end of the 19th century cajón players were experimenting with the design of the instrument by bending some of the planks in the cajón’s body to alter the instrument’s patterns of sound vibration.After slavery the cajón was spread to a much larger audience including Criollos.
