Each year, the Super Bowl is considered to be one of the biggest and most exciting events to watch and/or experience. Too bad it only comes around once a year. Unlike the Super Bowl, taking piano lessons isn’t just a “one-and-done” annual event that you have to wait 365 whole days to experience again–you show up to your music lesson or class at least once a week.
And while we love Patrick Mahomes just as much as the next football fanatic, as long as you consistently practice piano outside of your lessons, you can become your own MVP!
Here are a few reasons why taking piano lessons is better than watching America’s favorite football game
Everyone has different feelings about sports; some folks love them, some hate them, and some think that pinball is a contact sport. But regardless of your preference, there are some real perks to picking piano over football.
Taking Piano Lessons Can Be a Solo Venture
First of all, you don’t have to be tied up with a team (IF group music lessons and/or dueling piano playing just aren’t your jams). Team sports are not for everyone. If you (or your kiddo) are more of an individual activities person, taking private piano lessons may be just what you need. Solo piano lessons equal just you and a pro piano instructor, who is like your own personal coach.
Playing the Piano Is (Usually) Not a Contact Sport
Can you imagine what it would be like if you had to spar with another student to claim “who gets the next turn” on the piano? That just sounds like a segment on a Japanese game show.
Sustaining injuries—a common occurrence in contact sports—is highly unlikely while playing piano…though don’t rule out the odd “finger slam” from time to time. That being said, in reality, you have more to gain than lose by taking piano lessons, even if you do sometimes trip while getting on and off the bench.
Piano Playing Is Year-Round
All sports have seasons, but learning to play the piano does not. At Omaha School of Music & Dance (OSMD), we offer piano lessons year-round, so the fun and learning never has to stop!
Where Can I Find Private Piano or Group Music Lessons Near Me?
At OSMD, you can choose between taking private piano lessons or group music lessons. You or your kiddo will learn from a full-time, university-taught piano teacher who lives and breathes music. Their passion for teaching piano is clear, and it transfers to their students. Each week, your group music instructor will review what was worked on the previous week and move on to the next lesson to keep you learning and progressing.
