We love to play the PIANO, and we have been nourished with its thousands of benefits and enjoy it till today!!! We want you to get the same. This is even proved scientifically by many findings. 

Magic In Music

Did you know that every time the PIANIST pick up their piano, fireworks going off all over their brain? We can see the pianist is very calm outside while playing the piano, but inside his brain, there is a party going on.

This we came to know by the findings of neuroscientists by monitoring the human brain for the last few decades. The comparative findings between how our memory system works and musicians’ memory exhibit enhanced memory functions, creativity, Storing and retrieving memories more quickly and effectively. 

 Will Only music provide all these benefits? How about other activities, workouts, athletics and paintings!!! Neuroscientists have explored these issues, but so far, they have found that the artistic and aesthetic aspects of learning to play musical instruments are different from any other activities, Studied including other arts.

An Experiment With Piano By Neuroscientists

With the help of instruments like FMRI (Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging ) and PMT(Positron Emission Tomography) scanners, 3 types of people are experimented with to observe the changes in their brain and monitoring the areas of the brain responsible for reading and math problems.

First type:  When researchers got the common people participants, they observed and reported their brain’s plasticity and Synoptic nerve functioning.

Second type:  When researchers got the trained musicians’ participants, they have observed fireworks all over the brain. Multiple areas of their brains were lighting up at once as they processed the sound, took it apart to understand elements like melody and rhythm and then put it all back together into the unified musical experience. And our brain does all its work in a split second.

Third type:  When observing the brains of music listeners to those of musicians, it turns out that while listening to music engages the brain in some pretty activities. Multiple brain areas light up simultaneously, processing different information in intricate, interrelated and astonishingly fast sequences.

Thus playing the PIANO engages practically every area of a brain at once, especially the visual, auditory and motor cortices. The most obvious difference between listening to music and playing it is that the latter requires fine motor skills controlled in both the hemispheres of the brain. It also combines the linguistic and mathematical precision, in which the left hemisphere is more involved with novel and creative content than the right excels in.

Promote God Health And Wellbeing

With the observation over the person who started learning piano as a beginner for few months, we can see some physical changes in his brain. Those changes improved his brain’s structural and functional ability. We can see these physical changes in the brain, not only in the younger generation but can positive changes can also be achieved with older people.

Note: We all know, what does not bend at five does not bend at fifty! But PIANO broke the rule, and it will even bend fifty plus.

Playing the piano increases motor control, listening, memory (especially of audio information). The benefits extend beyond the activity of playing the piano in your everyday life. The impact the ability to plan, coordination, language skills, attention span and alertness.
