Terrific video! Even though I love playing the piano, I never knew it raises serotonin levels and lowers stress levels.

Yeah it lowers my heart rate and blood pressure. I can work out my frustration with a quick tarantella or some rock & roll. I wear a fitness tracking device and my heart rate goes down after playing the presto part.

Nice job Rich.

Lubucrate et al,

Thank you for posting this and for the kind words. Music education is "my thing" and I am thrilled to be asked to bring the idea to others.

Totally true, Emery. I am just quoting research that I get hold of, but my sister is head of arts (music, art, movement, and occupational) therapies at a huge psychiatric hospital and she passes on research to me as well. She is a music therapist by training.

You are too kind, but I am trying.

Your shaky medical credentials notwithstanding Rich, I figured you were right. wink Good to know all the benefits of playing the piano. I actually thought of them today as I was playing. Piano playing definitely helps me wake up and sets my mood in the morning. However, I wonder if any de-stressing from playing is offset by the added stress of trying to get your 8 year olds to practice! cursing But, I periodically offer to let them quit piano lessons and they always refuse, so maybe eventually they'll get the bug too.

Unfortunately I think that might be a "wash", Emery Wang. grin grin
