What is a Good Age To Start Piano Lessons?
Although I believe that there is no wrong or right age to start, my recommendation would be at age of 6+. Students who start at a younger age should have the sufficient emotional maturity and the ability to focus, which may not be expected at that age.
Adult Piano Lessons
I believe playing any music instrument brings beauty and love to your life and removes stress. It is something only for you, something you can do on your own. You, your instrument, your music sheet, and your teacher, is all you need.
It is never too late to start, which is a great thing to believe in general, but it applies to Piano lessons as well. Adults can learn music at any age, 30, 40, 50 or more. The only thing stopping them is their own mind. If there is a will , there is a way. I am particularly proud of my adult students as they have a lot of discipline to make time for their practice despite all other responsibilities that younger kids may not have. My adult students range from complete beginners with no music background to those who have stopped playing when they were young and decided to go back to music after a long time.
Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced
I have students from beginners level to those who are on their way to discovering the wonderful world of advanced piano playing. They are able to achieve a world they want to be in, away from all the stress and triviality of our day to day life.
Why Learn How To Play Piano
Apart from the Love For Piano, there are many reasons why parents encourage their children to play Piano, such as: Kids who study music do better in school and in life (Dr. Glenn Schellenberg of University of Toronto), in his research paper, he reports: Students who studied music exhibited greater increase in full-scale IQ. Children who take music lessons show different brain development and improved memory over the course of a year compared to children who do not receive musical training. Students with four or more years of music study scored significantly higher than their peers on the verbal and math sections of SAT.
