Adding composition to piano study helps the piano student tie the various aspects of music together. They are not simply learning scales and cadences; they are manipulating them. Learning to play the piano is enhanced when piano students acquire knowledge through active processes that engage them, like music composition. It is a boost to their piano lessons.
