Piano at Strong Rock
Research on music and the brain has convinced more schools to adopt a class piano program as part of the academic curriculum. It has been proven that playing piano/keyboard instruments develops left brain/right brain skills and spatial and cognitive reasoning skills and that these learning techniques directly correlate to advanced reading, math, and science skills.
The piano keyboard is also an outstanding medium to connect visual and tactile skills. Through the use of a sequential curriculum and digital technology, visual, aural, tactile, physical, and creative senses are developed and enhanced. Students from 5th through 12th grades have the opportunity to take class piano lessons as part of the daily instructional program or after school hours.
