It's a crazy late life compulsion. A long time musical itch that needed to be scratched.

I wanted to learn as a child, but we couldn't afford it. My two best childhood friends, though, had pianos & became accomplished pianists, winning awards in statewide high school competitions. Both were so happy when I told them I was taking up piano at age 65. They've been wonderfully supportive. It's one more tie that bonds us -- much fun.

The Piano is going to become my only girlfriend ever. I'm going to take her to a date, talk to her and cuddle with her ...and also yell at her and beat her sometimes.

In fact, any instrument could do it for me, but the piano being a percussive instrument, connects better with my emotions.

I also blow into the blues harp as the alternative instrument for the different feeling it's got.

P.S Also to improve my horrible concentration.

Afte re-reading my post, it seemed to me that the point about the piano gf wasn't correctly worded. By beating and yelling and all else, I meant a mutual relation where we can yell at each other etc...

I started playing piano for the first time 20 months ago at age 61...i have never played an instrument of any kind before. My mother played piano as a child and she took it up again for a few years when i was about 12 and i remember her playing Claire de Lune and a few other classical pieces. i have been moved by beautiful piano music ever since. I had a busy career in public relations and fashion and when i retired i decided to learn piano. So... i found a teacher and i bought a used digital piano on Next Door and started working hard at practicing. My husband works in the music business and is a guitar player so after a couple of months of hearing me practice with diligence, he surprised me and bought me a Yamaha Baby Grand. He said with this beautiful piano you will be inspired to keep playing...i was! Now i have been playing close to two years. I practice about two hours a day and am so thrilled with my progress. I am now playing beginning intermediate to intermediate pieces...Sometimes after i finish playing a piece i cry....i can’t believe that i can actually do it! Whoever says all older adult beginning piano students do not practice and quit piano,..i say...not true! Don’t give up! You can learn to play at any age. Find a teacher you love and just remember you have to be bad at it to get good at it. I play piano to add beauty to my life and it does just that.
