Donated street piano destroyed less than a week after installation, replaced.

Tallant Music Studio and the City of Fort Thomas, Kentucky, partnered to
sponsor a street piano program for the Summer of 2022. The piano was set to be
painted with a beautiful mural, but had been destroyed by delinquent(s) soon
after it was placed under the clocktower.

The beautiful 120+ year old Baldwin piano, made in Cincinnati, Ohio, was in
its last chapter. Though functional before destroyed, it could not be tuned
anymore due to its heart, the soundboard, being cracked. Tallant Music Studio
therefore donated the piano as an interactive pubic art piece that the
community could enjoy.

In the 6 days it was out, it was already played and enjoyed by hundreds of
people.

Thankfully, the City of Fort Thomas quickly found a replacement piano which
is now in place and again being enjoyed by the community.

The police are currently finding the perpetrators and an investigation is
ongoing. If you have any information please contact the Fort Thomas Police.

Why Study Music? It Makes You Smarter According to MIT

Why study music? A recent study from MIT compared students who learned to code with students that learned a musical instrument. The study found that learning to code:

“… seems to be its own thing. It’s not the same as language, and it’s not the same as math and logic.”

In contrast, by learning an instrument, the study found that it did indeed increase other skills and brain power.  The research went on to say that

“The earlier the musicians had started with musical practice, the stronger these connectivities.” 

The summary of the research stated,

“musicians’ brains were vastly more structurally and functionally connected than non-musicians, especially in areas of the brain responsible for speech and sound (especially the auditory cortices of both hemispheres). … The musical group also showed stronger connections from the auditory cortices to other brain areas in the frontal, parietal, and temporal cortex known to be involved in the control of higher cognitive functions like memory, working memory, and executive functions.”
