A piano lab affords the opportunity for students to experience music in a way they may never have known due to their socio-economic environment.
They find some aspect of music in which they can have success, and some have been able to do something they did not know they could do.
Many students develop a strong sense of pride in being able to perform or create their own music.
They learn that part of self-discipline comes from sticking with something until it produces the desired effect.
They are more accepting of others and respect the differences that naturally exist. They gain leadership skills as they work together and teach others what they have learned.
A healthy spirit of competition motivates students to develop the playing skill desired simply because they hear what another student can play.
