Suzi Parker is a journalist whose work also appears in The Christian Science Monitor and Reuters. A Piano for Every Child May Sound Impossible, but in Some Schools It's Happening The program Music and the Brain knows how big the benefits of music education can be. Piano-for-every-child (Photo: Alexander Crispin/Getty Images) Growing up, Lisha Lecari studied piano, listened non-stop to Aretha Franklin, the Beatles, and Bach, played guitar and attended rock concerts. “During my last year of high school I got hooked on studying music in depth, not just listening to it, discovered the thrill of counterpoint, and pretty much from then on knew I wanted to be a music teacher,” she says. " "Five-year-olds have so many neurons flying in their brains that they need to use them. The benefit of music is that it makes things connect more easily. ""For the last 17 years Lecari has been the director of Music and the Brain, a music program she created that currently operates in 100 New York City public elementary schools, many of them in poor neighborhoods. Her curriculum is inspired on a 1990s study that connected the experience of early musical instruction to increased cognitive ability. That study from the Center for Neurobiology of Learning and Memory and the Department of Physics at UCLA found that music training causes long-term enhancement in the reasoning of preschool children. The Landfill Harmonic: These Kids Play Classical Music With Instruments Made From Trash “Music helps students to focus, to concentrate, to attend to a task, and to memorize things,” Lecari says. “They learn pattern recognition, and it helps with math skills and literacy.” Supported by various organizations from the Ford Foundation to the 42nd Street Fund, Music and the Brain installs 15 to 25 pianos and keyboards in labs in each participating school. It's one of the few programs with a piano curriculum aimed at K-2 students, though it can also be used effectively with beginners of any age. Lacari says she enjoys using it to teach parents to read music in 30 minutes. The extensive curriculum includes a repertoire of 156 songs, including examples of classical, filk, children's music, and a wide range of world music. Presented sequentially, the songs teach everything from ear training (for rhythm and pitch), to movement, analysis, geography, history, storytelling, games, singing, dancing, playing piano, improvisation, and performance. The program also includes three piano books, as well as teaching manuals, rhythm and keyboard cards, theory papers, poster-size copies of each song, and 43 CD recordings. Music teachers are given an initial training and attend an annual workshop. Instead of just teaching musical notes to children, Music and the Brain stimulates kids to think, act on that thinking, and become inspired to produce their own sounds. For example, take the William Tell Overture. In some programs, students may learn to read music and then play the song. With Music and the Brain, students find where notes are repeated, they discuss and describe the music and how it felt to them, and they create a story to go with the music.
