MUSIC AND INTELLIGENCE

How music training affects cognitive abilities: A child’s brain has a remarkable capacity to alter in response to the environment. This capacity is known as brain plasticity.

FACT: When scientists compared the brains of non-musicians to the brains of musicians (both children and adults) who had several years of intensive instrumental practice, they discovered increased grey matter in the brains of the musicians.

Skills that children acquire in music training, are transferred to other cognitive functions.

ABOUT PIANO LESSONS

I teach piano in the authentic tradition of the Russian classical school of music. This encompasses a complete music education, based on the concept of “wholeness” in education. It includes music literacy, ear training, singing, music theory (grammar and musical syntax, style and form), as well as a detailed approach to a piano technique that produces beautiful tones through phrasing, articulation, “hands breathing”, “hands singing”, and other skills.
