Your Child's Musical Ability Could Lead to College

By Elizabeth Venturini, College Career Strategist

 

As a recognized expert in college admissions I am often asked by Moms and Dads with children in K-6th grade and middle school how they can best prepare them for college. My advice is one word – MUSIC, in particular playing the piano. For families who want to get a jump in preparing their children for college it has been established that playing piano not only increases child intelligence, but the actual size and shape of the brain!

They're not “just” piano lessons anymore  

Playing the piano develops motor and auditory skills resulting in greater coordination.  It gives students greater concentration, focus, and the ability to hold a train of thought. This leads to improved scholastic performance with greater reading skill and better study habits for your student. Playing piano teaches students how to learn, giving them the spatial-temporal and analytical reasoning tools necessary to excel in fields dependent on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. And, on a personal level it can help your student develop character, confidence, and cultural understanding.

Finding a piano instructor for today’s “digitally distracted” children

Select a piano instructor who uses the piano as an effective tool to teach young minds “how to learn.” A good instructor should utilize the best that computer technology must offer and encourage students to compose and record their own music.

The best piano instructors replace traditional “boring” music lessons with engaging learning techniques that bring real results you can be proud of. Your child can become a superior student, as well as a crowd-pleasing musical performer.

Look for a special program with a long-range focus on college

A piano instructor should inspire children to enjoy the learning process, showing them how to focus and achieve goals, and how to link creativity with analytic thought. Toward their expectation of attending college, a piano instructor should be working with a college admissions consultant. Working together they can help position your child’s musical ability as a significant admission “tip” factor when applying to highly selective schools.
