Playing the piano is an incredible mental and physical exercise which has been shown to increase a child’s IQ and also enrich his or her soul. Since playing the piano uses the eyes, fingers, ears and even the feet all at the same time and requires one to use one’s right and left hands in different ways at the same time it is a great way to develop coordination.
Piano Lessons for Children
Children also learn many life lessons such as effective ways to study and solve problems and certainly a sense of self-discipline and accomplishment resulting from practice time invested in the instrument. The study habits and lessons learned at the keyboard transfer later in life to all other academic and intellectual pursuits. More particularly, the experience of creating beautiful music at the piano is satisfying to the soul. Whether the child is playing Bach, Beethoven, rock or jazz, the creative joy is well worth the effort involved.

Piano Student Success
Over the last thirty plus years, the Toedtman School of Music has trained hundreds of people, of all ages, and helped them to enjoy music. Many have used their skills as a hobby and past-time activity. Some have gone on to notable careers in music.
Most prominent of these has been concert pianist Nicholas Angelich who as a child studied piano with John K. Toedtman for three years before entering the Paris Conservatory at the age of thirteen and is now, according to music critic, Janelle Gelfand, “one of the greatest living pianists in the world.”
A good many alumni of Toedtman School of Music have become school music teachers, private music teachers or performers of classical, pop, rock, jazz and county music.
