7 thoughts on “Am I Too Old To Learn Piano? 5 Answers from Expert Piano Teachers

  1. Very interesting. I’m a 58 year old female and I have been taking private piano and keyboard lessons for the past twelve and a half years under two different teachers now. My present teacher is Mr. Dana Andreasen from Omaha, NE.
    It’s very good to hear that you are never too old to start piano lessons. I have been worrying about that for years. I am still playing at the Intermediate level after 12 years of consistent practice. I’m so frustrated.
    I meditate twice daily everyday and have been doing so for the last three years. I like what the author states about blending mindfulness with piano practice.

    1. Don’t get frustrated Gina, I’ve been learning to play harpsichord for about 5 years and I’m still on book one. I am now 72. I just enjoy playing and love my lessons every two weeks. I sometimes think I’m wasting my money but then what is better to spend it on?

  2. I am now 62 year’s of age and love hearing piano music but have never played the piano or even attempted to play one, have I left it to late to start, I think I have the motivation but am never really sure how to start, any idea’s what my first move would be ?

  3. Hi,

    I’ve wanted to learn to play piano for many years and finally have the time to start. I don’t want to spend a “lot” on a keyboard (no room for an actual piano), but am wondering… if I want a decent keyboard that will last me for at least my first few years, should I really endeavor to get an 88-Key with weighted feel keys?

  4. Hi everybody
    I played organ from an age of 14 to 22 years. Thereafter I stopped because my study and job asked many time. A few years before my retirement I decided to start with playing piano. This was not easy.
    Challenges were:
    1. Bridge the difference between my sound performance and my actual performance skills
    2. Develop a way of studying piano which was adapted to my age: short periods and dividing time in short pieces with repeating of little music sizes in order to perform these as good as possible.
    3. Keep the dedication and mindset of a top sporter by setting my own goals and enjoy of reaching them.
    4. Keep laughing and accept the changing form of every day.
    I wish you all a lot of satisfaction with playing piano on your own way!

  5. Hi. I’m called Max and I’ll be 20 next month. I’m a beginner in learning piano. I really have the passion but I don’t have a piano to be practicing with. If anyone can help me with any small keyboard that I can be practicing with, I’ll be very glad. My WhatsApp number is +237672232949
