Piano Lessons for Adults
It's never too late to learn
Adults learn differently!
Adults tend to participate much more actively in the learning process. You’ll find yourself asking a lot of questions, as you begin to relate what you learn to your own experience. At the beginning you’ll learn much more quickly than a child, since you’ll be able to understand whole concepts, not just brief points. Your fingers will be stronger and more agile than the average 7-year-old beginner, too.

Learning as an Adult
You can begin learning piano at any age - you're never too old to begin. Okay, you may not get to be the next Beethoven, but the real fun is in enjoying the journey - each week you'll get a little better at playing piano, and there's a lot of satisfaction to be had along the way. Anyone can learn.
Returning to the piano (after years or decades)
Learned a little while you were young? Forgotten it all? It’s easier than you think to rediscover your skills. You'll be surprised how it begins to come back to you - or how quickly you learn afresh. You'll find some general advice about returning to the piano here.
Pressure-free learning environment
You're not a child anymore - why should you be treated like one? You won't get in trouble if you can't practice, or if you have a bad week and don't get much done. If that happens, let your teacher know, but you shouldn’t have to say 'sorry' about it - a good piano teacher should be like a coach, not like an examiner. Do what you can, and we'll make whatever progress we can manage.
Lessons tailored to meet your goals
We will begin by asking what you want to get out of your piano lessons – if you have any musical hopes or dreams. We’ll design a programme that suits your personal goals and circumstances, and we’ll re-visit it regularly to make any changes necessary.
Improvisation and playing by ear
Even if you learned as a child, you may never have been taught how to play play by ear, improvise and play from chord symbols. This can be a part of your lessons if you wish.
