Adults and Piano Study

November 15, 2019
While some adults who sign up for piano instruction are complete beginners, others know a bit about the piano from childhood lessons. In my experience, everyone who commits to their study succeeds in meeting their goals regardless of where they start.
People will ask, 'Are you famous?' And I always answer, 'My mother thinks so.'
Adults, like children, feel a strong sense of pride in their progress and ongoing increase in satisfaction. Some even choose to share that progress in our regularly scheduled recitals. My oldest adult beginner started with me when she was 82 years old and she studied through age 89. She enjoyed sharing her music each year with a Christmas recital for her family.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
