Some people in Singapore are embarrassed about letting others know that they are intending to take piano lessons in Singapore as an adult. However, there is nothing to be embarrassed about. If you are learning in your 30s, you have some unique advantages that a child student does not have. If you are instead looking for a teacher for adult piano lessons, then check out Sg Learn Piano. But if not, read on.
Here are some of the benefits that you can get as an adult learner of the piano.
First of all, as an adult, learning the piano is definitely a conscious choice 100% dependent on you. Some child music students are actually only taking piano lessons because of their parents’ influence or demands. However, as an adult in your 30s, the only reason you want to learn piano is because you want to yourself. This means that you are much more passionate about learning the instrument. This passion means that you will stick to the grind and practise hard. Practice is key to success for mastering the piano. This means that you will find learning the piano a much more pleasant experience than some kids.
Second of all, as an adult, you will be able to grasp concepts much quicker and easier than young children do. Some concepts, in particular piano theory concepts, can be difficult to understand. As an adult, you will be able to breeze through these lessons versus a six year old for instance. As a result of that, you will be able to pick up the information taught in the piano lessons quicker. This also translates to you being able to move along the grades far quicker than a child learner would.
Third of all, while some would argue otherwise, I feel that a single adult who is not yet married and definitely without kids will definitely have a much freer schedule than any kind of student in a public school in Singapore. Look at the amount of activities a child in a public Singapore school has to go through – school academia, CCA, (forced) volunteer work, amid lots of homework even during the holidays. On the other hand, unless you are an investment banker or are a brain surgeon, you would probably be relatively free after your job and during the weekends. This means that you will not be as mentally tired as a child in Singapore. Keep in mind I am only referring to single adults in Singapore, not married ones or parents. You will have much more free time and mental capacity during the piano lessons to absorb and learn quicker. Additionally, you will have more time to practise on the piano as well, allowing you to become a better pianist in no time at all.
In a nutshell, learning piano and taking piano lessons in Singapore as an adult can appear daunting at first. However, upon deeper looking into the various important issues, you will quickly realize that it is a great idea.
