Music And The Brain
Here at Cunningham Piano Company, we are passionate about the benefits of music. The infographic here shows some of the many benefits of music, ranging from healing powers to creative and cognitive boosts (click the image for a larger version).
While all forms of music are beneficial, people who play the piano enjoy some of the best benefits of all. Thanks to working with both hands at the same time, pianists actually stimulate both hemispheres of the brain equally. That might explain why the vast majority of the greatest composers (Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, the list goes on and on…) were tremendous pianists.
In the following videos, Cunningham Piano Company co-owners Rich Galassini and Tim Oliver share their passion for music education. From the academic benefits of playing the piano, to touring our factory and exploring how art and science come together, to the music lessons offered at the Cunningham Music School for students of all ages, it’s never too late (or too early) to discover the amazing brain benefits of music!
