Piano is one of the most ambitious instruments in terms of range and capabilities. Regardless of their main instrument, professionally trained singers and instrumentalists have always studied piano as a second music discipline. Famous contemporary musicians, such as the cellist, pianist and conductor Mstislav Rostropovich, jazz singer and pianist Diana Krall, English classical musician and composer Benjamin Britten, legendary musicians Paul McCartney and Elton John are a few of the thousands of best examples of musician multi-instrumentalists.
Playing the piano allows one to perceive the world around us in harmony and balance, to meditate and find our inner self, to enjoy creating new music and to share sounds with the audience, colleagues and to socialise by participating in musical activities. The process of playing the piano requires concentration and develops aural skills and memory. According to Canadian researchers, musicians who have been engaged in piano playing for seven years have developed more advanced skills in all aspects of movement coordination.
