Music study is a child's most important extra-curricular activity because it will help him in many areas of life. Piano training builds physical skill, develops mental focus, and uplifts the spirit at the same time; and no other activity integrates all three aspects of humanness. There is nothing better than playing music to build wholesome, healthy human beings.
