Studies at University of California suggest that taking music lessons at age 3 can increase your child's brainpower. At Learn 2 Play Music, we have designed music & movement lessons, piano-based group lessons for children from age 3.5 to 7. Through our observations, we believe there are significant benefits to start music lessons at a younger age.
Results have also shown that despite having the same amount of musical training and experience, musicians who started training on an instrument before age 7 showed better accuracy, precision and stronger connections between motor regions that help plan and carry out movements such as fingering and coordinating both hands than those who began lessons later on. This study was conducted by the Concordia University and the Montreal Neurological Institute.
In the similar way, children who learn piano at a younger age often become more musically inclined than those who start later. To maximize your child’s musical potential, especially at a very young age, parents are also encouraged to be involved in your child’s music learning journey.
Give your child a head start by exploring our Early Music Learners, suitable for age 3.5 to 4 or Graded Piano Course, suitable for age 5 and above.

Research has shown that students involved in music helps them to achieve better academic results than non-music students, and the exposure to music development such as adjusting decisions on tempo, tone, style, rhythm, phrasing, and feeling--train the brain to become incredibly good at organizing and conducting numerous activities at once.
Dedicated practise of the skill can have a great payoff for lifelong attention skills, intelligence, and ability for
self-knowledge and expression.
