I strongly believe that learning the piano provides an excellent foundation for learning any other musical instrument. Not only do you learn to read both treble and bass clefs, but learning the ‘geography’ of the keyboard makes it much easier to learn scales and arpeggios on other instruments. However, the piano is a solitary instrument whereas learning a ‘band instrument’ means that you get to play in groups with other people, which is lots of fun. Did you learn piano before you learnt flute? Do you agree with these statements? Would you recommend that a beginner student learns piano first before they learn flute? Share your thoughts.
