5 Reasons Why Adults Should Learn to Play Piano

I have been playing the piano for almost 30 years now since I was 6 years old and here's something I believe when it comes to music and piano playing...

"If you love music, you're gonna love playing the piano.

If you love listening to music, you're gonna love it more if you are the one creating the music.

If you want to learn an instrument, you can never go wrong with a piano.

Ask around... Ask some piano players you know and I'm pretty sure they would agree unless they learned to play piano against their own will.

If you are a music lover, you should try it yourself. Try learning this amazing instrument. You think you don't have time to spare? Then make time! I assure you it will be worth it. 

Here are a few more reasons why you should play piano now (yes it's never too late even if you're an adult now). Read on and you'll be surprised how it greatly benefits your mind, body, and soul.

Reason #1 - Because Adult Piano Learning Can Reduce Stress

God knows we all need to reduce stress in our daily lives! Imagine just sitting down and playing a piano instead of taking another handful of pills? Studies have shown that in many adults, playing the piano was the most effective activity in reducing cortisol levels.

Reason #2 - Because Adult Piano Learning Can Build Your Own Confidence

The sense of accomplishment that you receive, as an adult, from learning to play music, is something that you can rarely find in other ways. Learning a piano takes perseverance which will help increase your self-discipline and build confidence.

Reason #3 - Adult Piano Learning Can Increase Memory

Researchers, at Northwestern University, the effect of music training suggests that music is a resource that tones the brain for auditory fitness.

Reason #4 - Playing the Piano Can Help Your Emotional State and Hormones

As we age, and life changes, we deal with ever changing emotions and hormonal changes. Particularly in women around the age of menopause, playing the piano can help with mood swings by increasing HgH, relieving stress, and increase good feelings in yourself. Mastering the art of playing an instrument is a joy and the overall satisfaction it brings is a real boost to your emotional state!

Reason #5 - Because it's FUN!

Learning to play music will be a process but there will be far less loathing than trying to learn to play as a child. Children often see learning music as a chore whereas adults really SEE the value and can enjoy the process as well as the result. Plus, it’s really cool to sit down in front of friends and impress them with your skills!

There are a bunch of reasons why you should pursue learning the piano but actually, as Lady Gaga said in one of her songs, “You just need one GOOD reason …” and it’s up to you!
