At the London Piano Institute, we empathy with adults who want to learn how to play the piano but who are anxious about getting started.
Adult piano enthusiasts who have no musical background or previous experience often doubt their ability to be able to play. They mix this fear up with all sorts of unfounded beliefs and wonders such as “Am I not too old to start?”, “I don’t believe I have any musical talent” or “What if I am not good at all and look ridiculous?”
The first thing we would like to tell you is: Do not worry!
You do not need to worry for the following reasons:
1. Whatever old you are, there is no age limit to start playing the piano for your pleasure. You do not intend to take a brand new direction, quit your job and become a concert pianist, right?
2. Any unique talent is, once again, not necessary to enjoy playing the piano. It is, indeed, helpful for those who wish to embark on a pianistic career, but they do not even need to possess it initially. We believe that talent is a skill that gets developed over time with years and years of experience. As you are not planning to do your debut at the Carnegie Hall soon, this point should not be considered.
3. Being afraid of not being good is understandable. It is usual for any adult to start a new hobby, but looking ridiculous will never happen at the London Piano Institute.
We have a genuine passion for helping adults get started, and we can assure you that we will never judge you. We will never think negatively of you. On the contrary, we will always support you and guide you in a manner that is comfortable for you.
I hope that you are not as worried after reading these few lines.
If you are still not convinced, why don’t you book our No-Fear Introductory Piano Lesson for absolute beginners?
As it lasts 30 minutes, it gives you enough time to experience piano playing, meeting your lovely instructor and realising that you are perfectly capable of doing what your teacher requires from you.
During this first lesson, your instructor will make you feel at ease and show you the very basics. You will discover the piano keys and their meaning, learn a few music notes and possibly play one or two short tunes with one hand. Does it sound impossible?
After this initial encounter with the piano, you will have a better idea of what it entitles and your fears should surely be gone.
There is no mystery about piano playing. It is a skill like any other that must be studied and improved over time, so the only way to be successful at it is to make the first move and get going.
Also, we are delighted to inform you that we strictly work with fantastic piano instructors who have a passion for passing their knowledge on and who have a vast experience in teaching adults. They have met hundreds of adults like yourself, and they completely understand where you come from and where you want to be.
