Benefits of learning to play the piano
Learning to play the piano has numerous cognitive, psychological and physiological benefits. The best way of sharing is through music, as music touches the core of the listener's heart. It is also a good way to express one's emotions. We share our joys and sorrows through music, and we can express inners feelings that we will not otherwise dare to share through words.
Learning to play the piano is an effective way to enhance their creativity and promotes the expression of emotions. Children also develop better co-ordinations skills through music. Through consistent practice, students develop a sense of patience, discipline, attention to detail, and also learn to appreciate the diversity of musical genres.
Musical training has been shown to enhance a child's ability to concentrate hence becomes more focused in learning. It also enhances speech development in young children. For instance, even cursory musical training can enhance reading skills as well as pitch discrimination abilities in speech (Moreno, Marques, Santos, Santos, Castro, & Besson 2009). Gromko (2005) showed that children who receive musical training will develop aural skills for spoken sounds and words faster than those who did not receive musical instruction. Franklin, Moore, Yip, Jonides, Rattray, and Moher, (2008) also found evidence for greater verbal working memory span in musicians than non-musicians.
For adults, learning the piano is a calming hobby - where one can learn to play one's favorite tunes, and share with friends and family. It also engages the mind and body which maintains flexibility, dexterity and mental acuity.
Piano playing is particularly beneficial to senior citizens. Research shows that seniors who have learned to play a musical instrument shows better cognitive brain function than those who do not play an instrument. Our seniors group piano class provides a fun musical environment for adults to learn their favorite tunes and also interact with like-minded music lovers.

FAST TRACKING PROGRAM
Entrance requirements for the advanced and fast-tracking programs: Formal performance audition and interview with either or both directors.
It has been proven in our historical records that with the appropriate methodology and collaborative efforts between student, teacher and parent, it is possible to achieve from beginners' level to RCM Grade 10 piano performance level within less than a year.
Another major difference in our unique teaching methodology is that we assist the artistic development of the young musician, hence performance goes beyond sheer technical accuracy and dexterity. Students at Lambda learn to perform from their hearts, and to convey a sense of conviction, personality and artistry in their performances since an early age.
Students in the fast-tracking program also receive regular masterclasses from internationally renowned piano pedagogues. For instance, in the past years, our students have attended masterclasses by Alfred Brendel, Prof. James Anagnoson, Prof. Jorge Chamine, Dr. Wonny Song, Ms. Nancy Loo, Prof. Kyoko Hashimoto, Dr. Angela Chan, and other major concert artists.
Students in our fast tracking program have won first prizes in major national and international competitions, as well as performed in major concert venues such as Carnegie Hall (New York).
