For me, the benefit of learning piano is that it has provided me with a rewarding career that allows me help students grow into their potential as musicians.  There have been times in my life, particularly when I was in high school and very busy with sports when I didn’t see the value in piano.  I am so glad today that my parents pushed me to continue in lessons as being able to play, compose, and teach brings me so much joy!
