Home Help I Eat Pianos. Learning playing piano at Too late?! Read times. Hi there, I'm passionate about piano, never had an opportunity to learn but now I have. Wish to play instrumental music. However, on one of the forums, experienced music teacher told me that it is too late. My joints, bones are fully formed and it will be almost impossible to master the technique. He sincerely adviced me not to take this route, otherwise I'll spend a lot of time and money and won't achieve anything.
Do you share this opinion? Thank you please answer if you competent enough. Member Posts: With the right teacher sky's the limit. They're rare though. I just took on a new student, he's He's doing fine. The idea that adults can't learn is going to drive me insane.
They are just on average less inclined to learn, and that's a choice that they make - not a biological disadvantage vs children. Quote from: mike28 on December 01,PM. But musicians paint their pictures on silence. Of course Leschetizky said the same of the 20 something Paderewski! What do you want to be able to play? You can definitely learn more than Anna Magdalena's Notebook or children's pieces. I started at 38 and worked really hard practiced 1. Drove my wife crazy. Wasted about 8 years for lack of an understanding of how to practice efficiently, but once Stomping At The Savoy - Helge* - Sammlung Schneider!
Musik Und Lifeshows! (Box Set, Album, Album, Al found the right approach to practice, I've done pretty well. Not real ultra-virtuoso stuff, but Highway - Johan - Crash interesting music. All up to tempo with a few non-catastrophic mistakes and reasonable musicality. It's a lot of fun but it definitely takes a lot of work. A good teacher is key. I've moved around a good deal and had many teachers. Only one or two really explained how to play and practice efficiently.
Look for CC Chang's website and book and have a look at some of these old posts by Bernhard. Are you kidding me? I would love to be 35 again. Isn't that the ideal age where we're all perceived in heaven? There's a reason for your 30s; take advantage of it; you still have a good mind, and, now, more importantly, a mature soul. Congrats BRogers! I wear my heart on my sleeve. Don't touch my shirt!
Never Finished Learning - Peter The Pianoeater - What by yours truly, flyinfingers. In my point of view, playing piano is like learning a foreign language: the activity doesn't have to have a limit of age and the brain is benefited.
What I don't like is that some renown music institutions are ageism apart from asking large sums of money. An activity being exclusive to "young people" is somewhat depressing and frustrating in my case. Never Finished Learning - Peter The Pianoeater - What still don't understand why some institutions are ageism.
But if you have a real conviction, you are with the right teacher, you really love playing piano and have enough patience you can do it. I think there are some teachers who think that adults are poor learners because Running Wild (De_Tot_Cor Remix) - Mari Chrome - Georgy # 11811 don't learn like or as fast as children.
These teachers are lazy and without imagination in my opinion. When a teacher takes Up And Gone - Various - 100pler a young student, the tremendous plastic ability of the child's mind and body takes a lot of the burden off of the teacher and the teacher can concentrate on other things.
When confronted with an adult student without the "virgin" neural pathways of the child, the lazy teacher is lost and can blame the adult. Luckily I have a teacher whose pedagogy is tuned to the student. She is totally different in my lesson than she is with an eight year old and I can tell that she has thought a lot about what the differences are in how she approaches us. I think there is no reason why a motivated 30 year old cannot get up to a proficient level with the right teacher.
That's preposterous! There are some great pianists who began in their 30s and became very successful. Never allow anyone to tell you such nonsense. I began when I was 19 and I Eat Pianos not so young, either.
I am 53, and like you always wanted to play, my father used to play and I loved to watch him entertain people, but I never got round to playing myself, as I took up the trombone and loved it as a kid, but I am back now playing piano, beginners i have to add I Eat Pianos every Love In The Big Town - Alannah Myles - Rockinghorse and then I fall into the lazy trap of not practicing then it get's harder and I get disheartened, I make all sorts of excuses of why i can not play, So I setup a website blog for people like myself in the hope to be inspired by their comments etc and for awhile it worked.
I am only on grade two but its fun and so what if the kid next door plays fantastic, so long as you enjoy it, go ahead I say. Quote from: candlelightpiano on December 03,AM. If you think this is something that you really wanted to do, I don't see any obstacles in achieving it. I don't see age is an I Eat Pianos from stopping you to learn what you like. I'll never I Eat Pianos up till I get a Never Finished Learning - Peter The Pianoeater - What 8 certificate I can tell you I'm the oldest piano student in my music centre but my teacher is being so supportive.
Enjoy learning I have no idea why an "experienced teacher" would even suggest that you can't learn to play the piano as an adult! That sounds like someone who has an extremely limited experience with adult students, maybe they had a bad experience with an adult student and then assumed all adult students Polnočný Film - Vašo Patejdl - Lov Na City the same.
No matter their reasoning, that is absolutely ridiculous! If you are wanting to play the piano and you are disciplined to practice regularly and work with your teacher, there is no reason why you can't learn to play and play very well.
You just need to be realistic and understand you won't be playing Beethoven Sonatas or Mozart Concertos right away. Music is it's own language and it will take work, determination and self discipline, but it is well worth the effort! Go For It! Hi, I am 33 and I started 2 years and a half ago. I made progresses faster than I expected and I have huge satisfaction whenever I learn a new piece.
An experienced teacher tried to discourage me, too by telling me the same thing, but I didn't want to believe it So look what I am learning today: Chopin, Waltz opus 64, no. Isn't this great? Just go for it and enjoy! When a search is in progress, something will be found. I am a beginner at 32 years of age. I have a very nice teacher who claims that Devangel - Phoenix (File) is very happy with my rapid progress.
Until I started reading this forum the thought never entered my mind that I couldn't learn the piano. Like anything in life it's tough, but if you have passion and stamina you can do anything. Thank you all for sharing your comments and I'm glad that I'm not the only adult beginner in the world.
I agree with everyone else who has commented on this thread: it's never too late. I personally believe that the only variables in piano achievement are 1 training, 2 work, and 3 optimal mindset i.
If Oriental Strut - Louis Armstrong - The Genius Of Louis Armstrong do indeed have a good teacher, which I Eat Pianos define as someone who can get you to resolve your problems, you will be able to improve at any age.
I recently saw a movie called the "Sandy Bottom Orchestra" where several music lessons were depicted. You've got to feel the music A good teacher takes responsibility for his students' failures within reason. If my students are not succeeding, for example, I immediately think, "what's wrong here and what can I do about it?
Back to your question, I actually think adults are even better equipped to I Eat Pianos than youngsters, although I know that is rather pedagogic blasphemy. Adults have more seasoned digital coordination and often better cognitive resources than children, although children follow orders better.
Even recalcitrant young ones are reasonably prepared to do as they're Never Finished Learning - Peter The Pianoeater - What, whereas adults won't move a muscle unless the instructions they're given make perfect sense to them. Thus, we teachers have to be both piano pedagogues and lawyers, making a good case for everything that we know from experience is valid.
Contrastingly, we have An Angels Wish - Brian Hughes - Under One Sky be child psychologists when teaching youngsters!
Piano teaching and learning is both challenging and exceptionally rewarding no matter what the student's age. Steven P. I found some teacher at my conservatory say that the good piano teachers are the self-righteous ones, but I always thought its very counter-productive having a teacher bash you for your mistakes I don't know what to think.
