At what age should I start learning to play the piano?

Playing the piano improves coordination, relieves stress, and improves brain plasticity. It doesn’t matter if you start playing at 6, 14, or 65. However, some benefits are particularly important for certain age groups.

This short article explains why the ideal time to start classes is right now!

1. Preschoolers and primary school students

So far, there is no better way to develop concentration and coordination in a child than learning to play the piano. Therefore, children who play music (especially instruments that use both hands to play) are on average better at school than their classmates without musical experience. Parents whose child plays the piano are advised to record their performance on a voice recorder. This way a novice musician will see their progress, and they will not lose their motivation to continue their training.

At the same time, when choosing a musical instrument for a child, we must not forget that the main factor in the effectiveness of classes is the child’s desire to play it.

2.Teens

For teenagers, learning to play the piano is a great way to increase their self-esteem and become popular among their peers.

In addition, teenagers tend to be more motivated. They are in search of their destination, so, having decided to link their life to music in one way or another, they are engaged more diligently.

By the way, the famous drummer Art Blakey started making music as a teenager. And his first instrument was the piano!

3.Adults

At this age, playing the piano is a great emotional release. If a Mature adult has started playing music, it means that he is sure that he wants to do it, and he definitely enjoys playing. If you have children, then starting to study with them is not only a great time together, but also mutual support and motivation.

4.Golden year

The age after 50 is a period of life when we finally have free time to spend on Hobbies or fulfilling a long-held dream. Especially since in old age, piano lessons will help you ease the pain of arthritis, avoid Alzheimer’s disease and memory disorders. According to researchers at Emory University school of Medicine, ” activities such as playing a musical instrument or communicating in a foreign language help maintain brain plasticity in old age.”
