This is an issue that really gets me worked up sometimes…when people think that “it’s too late” to learn piano as an adult. I can tell you from experience it’s ABSOLUTELY not true.

I’ve seen time and time again adult beginner piano students absolutely kill it on the keys! But that being said, there are 3 key points that really separate the adult beginners who make it and the adult beginners who don’t. And that’s what I hope to cover in the video.

Basically, kids have some advantages. They have more free time. They have parents that encourage (or threaten!) them to practice. They have fewer other things going on.

But there are also some advantages you have as an adult! We’ll go over them more in the video. Think about those 3 keys and make sure you’re following each of them as an adult piano learner. It’s really what separates the ones that get good from the ones who quit.

In today’s lesson, I will be teaching you about the factors that determine how long it will take you to learn piano. Whether you are self taught beginner using online resources or taking lessons from a teacher, these factors are something you want to be aware of when learning piano. This is probably the most useful for adults who struggle with time constraint issues. Realistically, it can take months to get the groundwork laid to learning piano, and take years or even a lifetime to master.

How long does it REALLY take to learn piano?

I get this question ALL the time from students. And I used to ask it myself. Unfortunately, most teachers just give the answer “it depends”.

Now… is that true? Yes, it does depend. But just because that answer is RIGHT doesn’t mean that answer is HELPFUL. I’d rather give an answer that actually means something and can give new students at least an idea on how long it takes based on how much you practice.

To do this, in the video we’re going to break down piano into three categories:

1. Technique
2. Playing by Ear
3. Learning Songs

For each of these categories, we’re going to break it down into an “if X then Y in Z time”. For example, “If you practice X minutes a day, you will get to Y level in Z months”.

This way you can really see “ok, if I just practice a certain amount of time a day in a certain way, I can be confident I’ll be at a certain level.

It takes the “it depends” answer and really breaks it down to something meaningful that you can actually follow.
