Fewer and Fewer Children Are Playing Piano


More bad news for all you musicians out there looking for a new keyboard player. Fewer children are playing piano these days. It’s a shame because piano is a great instrument for all of us to learn, not just musicians. Playing a musical instrument benefits your brain tremendously, and piano is one of the best.

We will force our twins to learn piano as all good parents should, but alas, our plan is to move in my mom’s old upright.

So we will contribute to the shortage of keyboard players, and improve our children’s academic outcomes, but we’ll do nothing to help the shortage of piano stores. Sorry.
