To my adult piano students, Mr. King Palmer, who has had a rich and varied career in music has this to say, "..... given the desire and will to learn, it is never too late to start .....".

It is very true, however, if one is older it may take longer to learn the art of piano music. Taking lessons from a professional piano teacher or learning from the so many available materials now, there are certain objects and skills that you will need before you can make a good start.

Mr. Palmer added that "..... practice becomes worthwhile when undertaken willingly, and for many good reasons--to improve technique and interpretation, to prepare for performance and examination, to measure progress, and to provide encouragement to go further..... ".

Given real desire to learn to play, the necessary self-discipline follows.

So, it's never too late for me to go back on those missed recitals eh??? My knuckles are starting to look like they're knotted....haahahaaa... Anyways, would love to be a piano virtuoso someday. Like what the article said, it's really never too late. Guess, all I have to do now is "steal" your piano back home...hahahaha!

There's no such thing as "late". If you really aspire for something, go for it. You already learned the basics, you just need to practice your technical drills and sight drills.

My fingers are like candles, can I still play piano?

Your fingers may melt when doing the technical drills ha ha ha!!!

Alam ko ang isusunod mong line, "magtanim ka na lang ng kamote," hu hu hu!!! I will never get to play piano, hu hu hu!!!

Bay Martin said...

Of course, you can still learn to play the piano. If you have the will to do it, you can do it!
