Expectations for adults learning piano
Having taught a number of adults over the years, I have a few things for you to consider before committing to piano lessons. Please read through this list, to ensure you are set for success with your lessons:
- Attending lessons regularly. If you want to learn piano, of course it’s very important to commit to attending regular piano lessons. This is essential in establishing a routine of achieving weekly goals, which in turn fosters strong growth as a musician. There are two main considerations with attending lessons:
- Do you have time? Of course an investment into yourself, growing your skills, and spending time doing something you love is incredibly valuable. It’s important to make sure you are able to commit the necessary time for lessons and practice.
- Are you able to afford the investment into regular lessons? Consider your household budget, to make sure this is something you can afford on a weekly basis for some months or years.
- Commitment to practice – As an adult, success with our piano lessons is up to us! Making a firm commitment to set aside regular (daily if possible) practice time will be rewarding on many levels.
- Choose music you love to play! This might seem obvious, but it’s worth stating – if you are learning piano as an adult, it needs to be really enjoyable – and choosing the style of music you want to learn will certainly help with that. Initially, if you are a complete beginner, you might need to just cover the basics, but as your skills grow, you can branch out into more styles.
- Make sure you have a piano that is in tune, accessible and enjoyable to play. Having a quality instrument that sounds wonderful to listen to and is enjoyable to play is really important in our overall motivation and success. If you have a choice as to where to put your piano, it’s better to put the piano in a quiet space, away from the TV and other distractions, so your piano time can be relaxed and productive.
Whether you are just starting lessons as a beginner pianist, or continuing to grow your lifelong passion for music, as an adult you potentially have a few more obstacles to overcome than children. Understanding these and making a firm commitment to your lessons and practice will definitely give you a better chance of piano success!
To ensure you are committed to your lessons, and to give you every chance of success, my policy for adults includes:
- Your lessons are paid in advance for a school term (usually 10 weeks), and are non-refundable.
- Cancelled lessons are not credited. However, if I have to cancel for any reason, of course the lesson will be rescheduled or credited towards the next term.
- There is a reasonable expectation that you will commit to regular piano practice (daily if possible), to ensure you are making the most out of every lesson.
- You will probably need to buy books or sheet music for your lessons.
- Where possible, listen to quality recordings of the music you are learning. This helps to grow your understanding of the music and helps in learning music more quickly and enjoyably.

Am I too old to learn piano?
You are never too old to learn to play piano!
As an adult, you have the great advantage that you know that you really want to learn piano. You have the ability to focus on your piano practice, and you know that skills build through consistent practice. The great thing is that you can also use time playing the piano as down-time to relax and enjoy your music.
How long have you been wishing you could play the piano? I have met many adults who wish they could play piano but don’t do anything about it. Don’t be one of them any longer!
The best advice I can give you is to start learning piano today, because in a year’s time you will be glad you did!
“I used to learn piano when I was a young. I would love to be able to play now.”
If you have learned the piano before, and you would love to take lessons again, Go For It! There’s no time like the present!
You might be pleasantly surprised at how quickly you remember how to play the piano … and you will certainly enjoy learning new skills and growing a repertoire of piano music you love to play.
What is the best way for adults to learn piano?
The best way to learn to play the piano is to have weekly lessons with an experienced piano teacher.
Weekly piano lessons in Parramatta gives you regular feedback and motivation. In our private piano lessons, you can receive timely feedback about your piano performance and learn new piano skills, including one-on-one feedback to help you refine your developing piano technique.
It’s also a great opportunity to refine your sight reading skills and strengthen your understanding of music theory in our fun and interactive piano lessons. If you wish to play by ear, we can certainly work on developing your musical ear as well!
At home, make sure you listen to piano music regularly and practice the piano often – every day is best! The consistent time playing the piano is the thing that will build your skills the fastest!
This also applies to reading music – the more often your practice the piano using sheet music, the easier reading the notes becomes.
In your piano lessons and practice at home, you can:
- Learn to play your favourite classical and modern piano music
- Learn to play your favourite songs on the piano
- Play piano tunes with chords
- Play music for your church
- Understand music theory
- Develop good sight reading skills
- Have fun piano music you can share with friends and family
- Develop strong technique
- Grow a great love of music!
There is no time like the present! Start your adult piano lessons today! Give me a call, and we can find a time for piano lessons that suit you, and start your journey to being able to play the piano like a pro!
