It’s been a while since you last picked up the saxophone or sat down at the piano, and you only sing in the shower or car -it’s probably been years. Right??
It’s not like you stopped enjoying it. BUT Life got busy and time had to be devoted to other things, however, you are conscious of something missing in your life and remember that it is the deep satisfaction of being able to make music.
And now, you might be curious but nervous about returning to making music again after such a long break. Is it even possible, or have you lost years of valuable skill-building?
In fact, it’s so much easier as you are an adult, many people have done it. You may be a bit rusty, but it’s a lot easier than you think. While life may have caused you to take a break, the memories and love of music remain. It doesn’t matter what instrument you played as a kid, the skills are easily transferred to another instrument. The piano is a great instrument for an adult to take up later on in life. It is really easy to work out how to play all your favorite songs, and by learning simple chords, you can provide your own harmony.
However, the most important thing is that you can pick up where you left off and immerse yourself in the world of music.
AND, Enjoy the new journey!!!
Many of us took music lessons as a child but stopped when we left school, went to college and life took over. Now more than ever, is a particularly good time to upgrade all those things that you learned as a kid so that your music-making can help enrich your life as an adult, so what are you waiting for?
Ahh… don’t say you are too old for learning music or that you will never be as good as your favorite musician. Remember, it is never too late to start again!!!
Learning how to maximize music’s deeply therapeutic power becomes a wonderful adjunct to our daily health and wellness programs. Listed below are some of the well-known scientifically proven benefits.

In fact, as an adult, you will have developed a whole bunch of skills that make progress in your lessons so much faster, and deeply rewarding. Of course, this comes with the caveat that you may now as an adult have more responsibilities than you did when you were a kid!
