The piano, fine motor skills and the child's brain.
It is from two to five years of age, learning music and the active cooperation of all fingers of both hands on the keys, produces a tremendous amount of neural connections in both cerebral hemispheres and creates faster communication between the two hemispheres.
This is essential for the development of a healthy, intelligent and balanced child. A balanced child is one who knows how to take in information with both sides of his brain simultaneously.
From the age of two, every child needs to begin, as early as possible, to learn to play with both hands. The corpus callosum, connecting the cerebral hemispheres, develops more intensively especially with the help of piano lessons. The simultaneous operation of both hands and the fingers of both hands causes the neurons to connect to the largest number of 'pathways,' so that the corpus callosum turns into a powerful conductor, a multi-lanes highway.
These 'highways' will help your child to avoid 'traffic jams,' not only in learning, but also in critical situations in life.
The development of the 'сorpus callosum' is a real treasure for your child. There is not a better gift, that you could give him in his whole life. Combining both hemispheres, responsible for abstract and logical thinking (left) and feeling, space, time, intuition (right), we contribute to the development of an "unsinkable" catamaran–a mind, that will be creative and think outside the box and deal with any problems that come his way in the future.
It is no coincidence, that pediatricians and educators around the world talk a lot about the need to develop fine motor skills of the child when he is between the ages of two and five!
My Method raises the development of fine motor skills to a new level and gives them a new meaning: we can help a child develop, not only with helping him to do up buttons, untie and tie up his shoelaces, but with helping him to play music pieces, even classical ones.
This type of learning is much much better than any existing methods of development and teaching of children
