Indeed, you have probably never heard of music education for adults. This is the best chance for those adults who have once in their lives taken a musical instrument in their hands but quickly put it off because of the bad teacher or any other excuse. Nevertheless, it is never too late to start playing the instrument you love and start practicing again, even with your child which will be a telling example for the kid that will encourage him/her towards new achievements, not to mention creating a solid child-parent bond.
I had the experience of communicating with adults whose technique improved so much compared to the one they had as children. Indeed, you don’t have to be afraid of taking all the provided advantages from this opportunity. In fact, many parents would be really surprised if the teacher of their child or children offered them to take a lesson or two too, whether alongside the kid or right after the child’s music lesson. To my own experience, the oldest student of mine was an 83-year-old lady taking piano lessons. However, the only reason she had to put them off was the yard work. It is truly a pleasure to see people much older than myself taking music lessons from me.
It is very important to discover a good teacher who understands the busy life of adults and provides huge tolerance. However, here is a great advice to those busy people still willing to take music lessons, which is a solid proof that it is never too late to get educated. It is recommended to schedule the desired music lessons every other week instead of doing the same thing but every week – this is the best option in case you want to dedicate your time to music, but do not have too much time on a particular day of the week.
Another important thing to remember is that music is created for joy and cheer. A great part of kid’s childhood is to experience positive moments with parents, and music is one of the best ways to saturate the life of a child. But another important part is to feel the right time when to begin attending music lessons.
