Children that start playing music, grow to become lovable human beings. This is acknowledged by people of all castes and creeds. I think music makes anyone mellow down. Musicians mostly have soft hearts and posses a gentle behavior.
If your son or daughter pester you for affordable kids piano or a guitar made exclusively for little fingers, do not refuse. Yield to the request and you will realize how happy you are after that. I am telling it from my own experience.
My son wanted a guitar at 11. He never took formal lessons and still managed to play for his school band. He grew to become an excellent computer engineer.
These days, piano starter packs are advanced and very affordable. They come with more keys and wonderful music software that makes the piano learning easy. The built in demo songs are play their part in music learning by the kids.
Oh yes, when you finally make up your mind to get a keyboard for your son, make sure it comes with a recording facility so that you would never miss your son’s occasional geniuses.
