Looking for an instrument to kickstart your child's music education? Whether it is because your child has shown interest/talent in music or you understand all the benefits of learning music to a child's future success or both; this post will talk about some of the reasons why piano is the best instrument to start your child's music lessons with.
Before we get into the specifics, let's talk about why piano is just an awesome instrument. Even though it's not without its limitations--we'll get into this in another post in the future--it's definitely the most versatile instrument, not to mention the BIGGEST (except the organ or course).
The piano has a huge range of notes from high to low. In fact, its range is so wide, its lowest note goes below the lowest instrument of an orchestra and its highest note goes above the highest note.
Along with its wide melodic range, the piano also has an incredible dynamic (volume) range. It is soft enough to accompany the softest instruments without overpowering, yet loud enough to be heard above a full orchestra.
Here's the kicker, the piano is one of only a handful of instruments capable of playing melody and accompaniment at the same time.
