Can You Learn To Play Piano When You Are a Senior Citizen?

If music in general and piano in particular interests you,
then now is the time to begin – you can learn to play piano at most any age. There are many piano lessons for adults online as well as in person.

When it comes to learning
the piano, age is no barrier. If you truly desire to learn
the instrument, you will apply yourself accordingly no
matter what your age. http://www.chordpiano.com/

I have had many students who were in their 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s -I don’t recall if I had anyone older than that, but it is possible.

I remember a man named Frank from Seattle who always wanted to
play the piano, but he was an engineer with Southern Pacific,
so stayed on the move a great dealmaking it impossible to take
regular lessons. (In a music store or studio).

When he discovered that I could teach him from a distance,
he was overjoyed, and stayed with me from 65 when he
retired to his death some 12 or 13 years later.

He started right from scratch – he knew nothing about
music or the piano – and ended up playing many of the
standards he grew up with, such as Stardust,
Sentimental Journey, Moon Glow, etc. He also had
learned several classical pieces – much to his satisfaction.

While we do absorb information like sponges in our
formative years, we do not necessarily have the deep
interest and sense of commitment that we do as we mature.
That’s why adulthood is a great time to learn a new
activity, such as the piano. Think of it, you are making a
conscious, independent decision to develop a new skill. No
one is telling you, or making you, take lessons. You are
studying the piano because you want to study the piano.

We tend to throw ourselves with verve into activities that
interest us. That’s why, if you have the interest, you can
learn the piano from scratch in adulthood. Music is a great
avenue for creative expression. In our fast-paced lives,
learning to create music may be exactly what you need as a
break from your daily routine.

The approach you take to learning the piano is important
when you’re an adult. In our jobs, we tend to work at a
harried pace and often expect immediate results. This
attitude can spill over into our music study. If you desire
to learn the piano, you have to take a systematic approach
and set reasonable goals.

Decide whether you want to take private lessons or
self-teach. You might want to take a few lessons to get the
basics down and then continue study on your own. You may
choose to do web-based studies. Whatever learning method
you choose will only take you as far as your attitude
does.

There is no faster way to get started in piano playing than
to learn to play chord piano. It’s both fast and fun, so if
you have always wanted to play, get started today.
