Is It Too Late?

is-it-too-late

I have been thinking about this lately. I really wanted to be able to play the piano.

Things I kept on asking myself are:

  • Do I have the patience to learn it?
  • Should I teach myself and watch stuff like “piano for dummies“?
  • Am I able to enroll myself in a music school?

I don’t know. Maybe I am just too lazy to do this stuff.

  1. I think if you really have love for the Piano then it wont feel annoying or bring you impatience learning because you will enjoy it and love it so much. However, if you give up and find no joy, then that instrument is not for you. 🙂

  2. If your heart lies there I think you must start off! After all we have one life why keep wishes unfulfilled, no?
    And music is soothing it helps you calm your mind and think clearly. I see many positives!

  3. I suggest that if you really are determined to do it, then let no excuses hinder you from achieving it. I guess as long as we have life nothing is impossible to happen. We just need to have a belief in God and in ourselves. For example, in my case, I love to travel. Many people believe that traveling is only for the rich. I am not a rich person but I was still able to achieve it in the long run. You just need to stick with your goals and not let your weaknesses overcome you. Good luck with all your endeavor. 🙂 You can do it 😉

  4. Stargazer, it’s not too late for anything. Some people pursue hobbies they’ve put off for practical reasons or passions they’ve had for years in their 40s or 50s. But if you’re lazy to even start, I’ll have to ask you to reflect if you really want to learn piano or is there some other, perhaps shallow, reason you’re thinking of this, such as wanting public recognition for an art? I believe that our true passion will keep calling out to us until we’ve acted on it.

  5. It’s never too late! Follow your dreams. Do whatever you want. You can still learn it. I really believe that we should try to accomplish what we want. It’s also a way of exploring whether it is something for you or not. Only trying it out will tell you!

  6. I don’t think you are too late. Even if you are a century years old, it’s never too late. On whether you have the patience to learn, I’d say stop thinking about that. Just go take a one-hour introductory course that lets you experience what it’s like and see where you go on from there.

    From what I have read, it seems to me that before getting down to it, the questions you raised could very well the reasons why you should not. So it really is up to you whether you take the approach of hesitating with ready-made reasons or take the plunge see experience first before thinking of the next steps.

  9. When I was in third grade, I thought I wanted to learn the piano. But at 9 years old, I thought I was already too old. In high school, I wanted to learn the guitar. But at 13, I thought it was too late. Just imagine if I persevered anyway? My point is, keep trying what works for you. But don’t ever let “being too late” a reason to stop. It is only tomorrow that we will be too late. Start today 🙂

  10. There’s never too late they say if it will make you happy. It’s better to try and fail than never doing it at all. I hope you’ll find time in pursuing your wish to play the piano. It will definitely be harder now than it was but it’s way cooler if you finally succeed coz the more effort you give into something, the sweeter the reward. Hope to hear your progress report soon! 😉

  11. Of course its not! If you want to do something go and do it hehe. Enroll yourself in a class for a few months I think then eventually you’ll be able to learn on your own through videos, books, etc. It’s great if you can also learn theoryl! I play the piano! 😁

  12. It isnt too late for anybody to learn something new. I learned how to drive just recently and all along, I thought I will never learn. Honestly, I do not want to learn. But I was pushed by circumstances to enrol and learn how to drive. I was afraid then that I may not pass the LTO exams but I did. So again, nothing is too late to learn anything. It is in your determination.

  14. It’s never too late to learn anything! Learning Piano takes time, but I believe anyone can do it if they take the time to commit, and they have the motivation to make it come through. So start and you’ll see! I’ve taught myself playing the guitar when I was 18, so I bet you can learn the Piano! x

  16. It’s never too late to learn something new. I’ve been playing the piano since I was the kid and it’s one of my favorite things to do. Whenever I feel down (and by chance, I’m at home in Legazpi), I would just play and I will feel better. Music can really uplift your mood and outlook in life.

  17. It’s never too late to start playing the piano. Well, if you really want to learn how. I’ve seen Youtubers learning on their own because it’s they want to. All you need is motivation and, of course, focus on learning.

  18. Like they all say! It’s never too late! I learned playing the piano when I was kid but now my skill is probably all rusty and gone. Go ahead and learn something new, it’s a good way to start the year! 😀

  19. I have zero knowledge in terms of playing musical instruments. I had piano classes in high school but did not learn anything at all. My husband on the other hand can play multiple instruments. He tried to teach me but I guess I am not really interested in musical instruments.

    Thus, if you really want to learn how to play the piano, I know you’ll be great. Determination and Hardwork is the key.

  20. Nothing is too late to someone who is eager to learn. I say do not overthink it. If you have the means and the willingness, you can definitely learn it. Maybe you would find the piano lessons enjoyable, who knows?! I definitely advocate for it. Go ahead girl!

  21. Like others have said, it’s never too late! I applaud you for thinking about doing something like this! Not enough people play the piano or anything with traditional music these days. I wish you the best of luck, and let us know how it goes!!! 🙂

  22. It’s definitely not too late if you put your mind to it! What I will say though is that it requires dedication and practice. I played the piano for ten years when I was younger but I have taken a four year break and now I cannot play a single thing – not one single piece! It is something that requires a long and regular commitment but if you can do that, then I say go for it 🙂

  23. I used to play piano, and I gave it up because it just didn’t capture my attention. It requires a lot of practice. I think you could learn it at home, but you will need to dedicate time and know that its a process!
