Music Lessons and Chinese Americans

Disclaimer: My daughter has been doing Piano Lessons since age 3. And per her, she's pretty d*** good at it too (she just walked by).

It seems like every Chinese American Parents has their child learning Piano. Learning piano per a study can help improve abstract reasoning and lead to high grades in Math. There is a lot of math in music when you get into it. I am not sure on why there is such a high interest in the Chinese Community. Perhaps it's recommended for getting admitted to a great school by showing how well rounded their child is. Or perhaps it's just peer pressure because all the other parents do it.

A fun book that captures some of the Chinese attitude on music and adds in baseball is
Yang the Youngest and His Terrible Ear by Lensey Namioka
