Piano playing has numerous healing and therapeutic benefits. It is a form of ultra-sound therapy sending sound vibrations into your body thus relaxing muscles and increasing circulation. It gets your energy flowing and gives results similar to meditation, acupuncture, shitatsu and yoga. It relaxes you physically and mentally, increases circulation, oxygenates you, causes dopamine and beta endorphins to release in the brain giving you a sense of well being and a natural high. It has all sorts of psychological benefits as it helps you express your feelings. Playing the piano improves mental clarity and tests show it even improves math scores in children. We are referring to acoustic pianos more so then electronic pianos as the natural, organic sounds that emanate from an acoustic piano are very different then the electronic frequencies that come from a digital piano. Also being made of metal, wood and cloth it seems to give a similar effect as Doctor Wilhelm Reich’s Orgone Energy Tools. Reich’s orgone accumulators are boxes made of layers of wood, metal and cotton that people sit in and experience a kind of life energy bath that has numerous health benefits. (To learn about Doctor Reich’s energy work, watch the video on  Youtube) Also many people report that it seems to improve the feng shui in homes and studios. The healing and therapeutic benefits of having a piano in your home are are endless and today pianos are very affordable from both the used and new markets. Also everyone can play the piano. If you can get around on a computer keyboard then playing the piano is easy in comparison as it only has an easy 8 note/key patterns that keep repeating itself. The growing popularity of the chord method of playing piano has also made playing the piano easy to do for everyone. So play that piano you’ll be amazed at how good you will feel.

Sonny discusses why purchasing pre-owned pianos is on the rise, is a great investment; has health benefits; is a stress reducer, is good for family relations; easy to play and fun to do. Here is Sonny’s reply to a LA Times syndicated article “PIANO LESSENS IT’S NO LONGER THE CENTER OF THE AMERICAN HOME!” In this article one person says pianos are like black & white TV’s a thing of the past, and a traditional piano teacher says technology makes kids quit piano lessons. Here is Sonny’s reply; Hold on there! Don’t declare the piano dead yet! These numbers only reflect “new” acoustic piano sales. As an online piano specialist I can tell you that the pre-owned piano market has doubled or even tripled during the same time period. Prices have dropped and quality name brand used American pianos have experienced a resurgence through buying and selling on the internet. And even though some American kids may be enamored by hi-tech gadgetry, they are also turning to the internet to learn how to play their pianos and keyboards as an entire new piano teaching industry has popped up there. Additionally many first generation Americans want their children to have the opportunity they missed to own and play the piano and so there is an entirely new pool of piano players emerging. In fact, as the housing and stock markets have become less secure, people are shifting their money into tangibles like pianos. Pre-owned Steinways, Mason & Hamlins, Knabes, Baldwins, Sohmers and others are not only great instruments to play but investment opportunities! I own and operate http://www.Sonny’; an online piano store and interactive piano video website that is dedicated to promoting piano playing and listening enjoyment. The site is loaded with fun, entertaining, educational piano videos, lessons and tips and even has a regular piano and wellness TV Show all of which attract thousands of viewers to the site every month! From this front row seat we are watching this resurgence and I can assure you that people are interested in and fascinated by pianos and are purchasing and playing them with great passion. Another reason for this turn around is that in many cases the teaching and playing styles are changing from a “pursuit of perfection” to a more relaxed, recreational, fun approach. People are playing the piano for the enjoyment and well-being it offers. As I always say at “Everyone Can Play The Piano! Long Live The Piano! Sonny
