It’s never too late to pursue a new skill. We all have untapped passions inside us. And it’s important we let them out!
Remember when you were a kid and you wanted to be a fire fighter? What ever happened to that dream? Or maybe you wanted to be a rock star? That was always my dream as a kid. Maybe you wanted to be a great musician. Why did you give up on that one? It’s not too late, ya know.
Quite often adults will ask me “Am I too old to take piano lessons?” And my answer is always the same: “NO!”
It’s funny how we view piano lessons as something only kids do. But the truth is most of my students are adults.
Some are younger adults who are settling into a life of working for a living and they need a hobby. They need something fun to pursue on the side.
Some of my adult students took lessons as a kid but then got busy with life. And as they have gotten older, they realize how much they wish they had stuck with piano when they were a kid. The good news is that it’s never too late to pick it back up. And almost always, once they start lessons, most of the stuff they learned years ago comes back. Just like riding a bike.
And then I have some retired adults who are done with their working life and have more time on their hands. They have always wanted to learn an instrument and now they finally have the time. Or maybe they played a long time ago, but got lost in the hustle and bustle of life and had to let the piano go for a while. It’s so great to be there when they pick it back up again!
It’s so fun to watch folks of all ages get excited about music. Life is too short to not pursue the things that will truly bring joy into your life. And if you love music, piano lessons is a great way to do just that.
I help my students learn what they want to learn. Most of my adult students learn songs off the radio that they love. Or they want to learn some classic sing-a-long songs so they can entertain their guests at their next dinner party.
I think when you are an adult, you know better what you want. You can choose what you want to learn. There is a lot of excitement that comes from that. Sometimes when we take lessons as a kid, we are just doing it because our parents make us. We may grow to like it, but most of the time we are just doing what we are told.
When you are an adult, you get to pick how you spend your time. And if you choose piano lessons, you may just find that you have a passion for music that you didn’t even know was there.
Now is the time.
So what are you waiting for? You’re an adult who gets to make their own decisions. So if you decide you want to pursue piano lessons, give me a shout and we will set up your first lesson!
