Instructor Edward J. Bemish
Edward J. Bemish had a childhood surrounded by music, so it came as no surprise to his parents when he began showing musical aptitude for piano at the young age of four. Influenced by his father and his sister, Edward acquired a keen curiosity for the keyboard that would lead him to where he is today: an accomplished musician and highly sought-after piano instructor.
By the age of 14, Edward knew he would seek a life in music. He taught himself to play advanced pieces from great musicians such as Mozart and Billy Joel. Although he would compose his own pieces, he was still unable to read music. With no formal training behind him, he realized that to go further, he would need lessons. He enrolled in music study at age 17.
Upon graduating high school, he auditioned and was awarded a partial scholarship to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. He then went on to enter the seminary at St. John's University in Queens, New York, where he was a pianist during Mass for several churches in the tri-state area.
After leaving the seminary, Edward went on to pursue an opportunity teaching life skills with mentally and physically disabled students. Music played an integral part in his interactions with his students and greatly enhanced his ability to quickly build strong relationships and trust. He learned valuable lessons from this experience that continue to inspire his music today.
Edward founded Bemish Green Piano Studio in 2001 and has provided thousands of lessons to students of all ages and levels, some of whom have advanced to teach and perform professionally.
Benefits of Learning Piano
Increased IQ and Test Scores
A study at the University of Kansas has proven that elementary school students who learn music, score higher on standardized tests than those who have not had a formal music education. A study at the University of Zurich in Switzerland has also proven that playing music can increase IQ by up to 7 points in both adults and children.
Cognitive and Emotional Development
Children who begin playing the piano in kindergarten have been proven to possess better cognitive development compared to their peers, as shown by a study by McGill University in Montreal, Canada. Playing music can also improve the emotional perception of both adults and children.
Those who are professionally trained in music have been proven to think more creatively than those who have not, based on a study conducted by Vanderbilt University. The psychologists at Vanderbilt found that trained musicians effectively used both the left and right sides of their brain more often than the average person.
