You might think that it is too late to take piano lessons as an adult. It is never too late. There is a widely held belief that music lessons must begin at an early age, and that starting later in life puts one at a serious disadvantage. Researchers in various early childhood education disciplines, including music, consistently emphasize the benefits that music lessons have for developing life skills that are vital to social and cognitive development. But as for learning to play an instrument, adults seem to be no slower in their progress regardless of age, as they often fear (except for some obvious factors of advanced aging such as Alzheimer’s or dementia).
Benefits of playing piano as an adult can help continue to increase self-confidence. A teacher with patience can give the adult student time to overcome basic fears of “can I really learn to play”. Some adult students took piano lessons as a child or in their teens and quit for various reasons and feel the need to pick it up again. As an adult we are not going to become concert pianist. But it can be satisfying to learn songs you enjoy and feel the accomplishment of mastering that song.
