Morris Town, NJ (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
Rockaway Music of Morris Plains, NJ, has long been regarded as one of the premiere sellers of new and used pianos and accessories in the state. Within the last few months, the store has begun offering lessons in the form of a miniature piano school on their premises. Andy Favatella, Rockaway Music’s owner, has assembled a top quality team of New Jersey piano tutors, teachers, and instructors for this very purpose. He believes offering this service will be a great boon to the state of New Jersey by helping local students benefit from the increase in test scores that scientists associate with musical ability in children.
The truth is, New Jersey students have been winning many piano awards and scholarships in recent months. Just last month, two students from Cranford, NJ were awarded
musical scholarships to local universities. That same week, another young student from Westfield won the prestigious Golden Key competition at Carnegie Hall. Andy believes by offering piano tutoring services on his premises he can increase this trend significantly.
Scientists have long regarded the connection between high test scores and musical ability in young people as very strong, and have always recommended parents give their children piano lessons in at least one instrument. A recent Harvard study has recently released additional surprising information: students who study music more often than others also gain greater verbal and visual pattern recognition skills, two things not necessarily associated with musicianship. Because of this, it is indeed possible that there is more science does not know about the hidden benefits of studying music at a young age. The chance of scholarships for aspiring musicians only increases the value of such a skill, which should spurn many parents into action.
Andy Favatella believes very strongly in the link between musical ability and intelligence in children. As an avid devotee of pianos, he has begun this service for the purpose described above. Additionally, he also says he wants to instill love of the instrument in young children so as to ensure it continues to have devotees in future generations. While the piano is still one of the most popular instruments for playing many types of music, its expense and care of upkeep puts many people off. By spreading additional awareness by offeering piano lessons in Morris County, Andy hopes to ensure a new generation of young people fall in love with the instrument as he did.
