Advantages and Disatvantages on Playing Piano On a Later Age!
by: Ido Ronen from www.piano-play-it.com

Hello there,
I'm very happy for you. You are about to explore a beautiful world which will enrich you and give you a whole new dimension in your life.

I have an 82 years old student who began two years ago. He loves it, and plays very well!!

First, I will tell you some of your advantages:

  • You want to learn piano. Many children go to piano lessons because their parents want them to. In this case they follow some lessons for a while, and they quit after a short period.
    You have a will of your own - nobody is pushing you to follow piano lessons, so you will enjoy it anyways.

  • You have a better reading ability than a 7 year old child because you have been probably reading for 18-19 years. This will help you to understand the notes, and to progress more quickly when you practice.
    * You are still young. Researches say that at your age your brain is at its peak.

    Now, the disadvantages:

  • In a way, it is like sports. It is impossible to be an athlete if you start your carrier at the age of 25.

    You will probably not be a famous pianist performing in major concerts, but you can definitely have the best hobby. You will be able to play for yourself, your family, your friends, and even may be able to perform with a band or a singer.

    What you need to realize is that you're entering a long process and be patient with the results. Simply try to enjoy the progress you make everyday.

    Make sure you practice daily which is sometimes a difficult tasks for people who are more busy.

    As adult we know more fear. Chilren are fearless and they don't feel their time is limited. If you succeed thinking like a chird with keeping you advantages as an adult you're on your way to somewhere.

    One last thing, As a child it is sometimes easyer to adopt new motoric skills. But it might possible that you acquired these skills through sport or if you played an other instrument. Bottom line, you'll never know if you don't try :)

    Don't wait, let's start. Take our free piano lesson course , which will take you step by step from the beginning.

    Good luck,

  • Me too

    If it makes you feel better, I'm just startin at 31. I find that I know a lot more about music than most kids that are learning, so I can apply theory much more easily!
