Learning Piano As An Adult: What To Expect
What to expect from lessons depends on your musical aspirations and the experience you have accumulated, but a few principles apply regardless of your starting skill level.
First and most importantly, you have to commit to practicing regularly (every day is best!). Consistent practice between lessons is the only way to continue improving, and if you don’t practice, you won’t get the return on your educational investment that you were hoping for. Furthermore, consistency is more important than sheer volume; 25 minutes of practice per day will take you further than three hours of practice on only one day.
Secondly, take your teacher’s advice on technique seriously. Adult students will naturally have more tension in their hands, wrists, and arms than children, and with the amount of typing, texting, and manual labor that adults undertake, there’s no way to avoid it. That’s why it is so important that you follow your teacher’s instructions on how to play tension-free; if you do not, you may experience pain, arthritis, or even carpal tunnel in the future.
Thirdly, follow our lead and focus on the fundamentals. We want to equip you with the tools to read, interpret, and play piano music at scale, and if you are simply learning to play your favorite songs by rote via Youtube videos or by ear, your skills won’t be transferable to sight reading, picking up new music, and a number of other things.
Piano Lessons For Adult Beginners
Have you decided to begin the piano learning journey in your adulthood? Like learning to speak a language, it takes time, patience, and regular practice. However, if you can commit to these things, you’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish, and you will find piano to be an incredibly rewarding investment of time.
Many adults think of piano as a way to relax at home, but it’s actually much deeper than that. Grappling with a new piece of music arrests your entire attention; it isn’t always “relaxing,” per se, but you will absolutely find relief from the stress of everyday life. How can you worry about work, family life, or bills when you are fully concentrating on Bach or Chopin? It’s one of the most rewarding leisure activities you can set your mind to, and it will elevate your lifestyle.
We will work with you on the fundamentals for as long as necessary, we tailor each lesson to your unique needs, and we will certainly not rush you or ignore your questions along the way. We want to help you learn the piano, and that process looks different for everyone.
