Can You Learn Music At Any Age?

Mar 28, 2008
The world of music is an ever changing one, and musical tastes change faster than ever. Only 10 years ago, boy bands were all the rage and these days they are nothing but a joke. Nearly 20 years ago, New Wave and Michael Jackson were kings of music, now they are archaic and funny in retrospect.

With the way music changes at such an incredibly fast rate, it can be hard to believe you can learn to play an instrument when you are 40 years out of touch with the current music trend.
Well, don't worry. Just because you listened to the Dave Clark Five instead of ColdPlay, it does not mean you are any less adept at learning something new.

Thankfully, as a middle-aged adult, you do not have to worry about not taking the time to learn something. You can commit yourself, around your job and life, to learn a new instrument. You won't have your parents urging you to practice and you won't have foolhardy dreams of making it big as a rock star when you are 47, so you can simply concentrate on the music and playing for the sheer joy of it.

This means you will be able to practice for fun, not for the future profit, and you will be able to have no strings attached to the guitar, piano or other instrument that you happen to play. It is all for the joy of it.

When you want to learn to play music in your middle-age life, you are going to have a few options about how you want to go about it. You can find an instructor who will be more than happy to teach you. They are in nearly every town in the country, and they usually do not charge too much. Some will even have an instrument for you to practice on.

Another way you can learn is through DVDs that can be bought off a variety of internet sites, which will show you, in your own home, how to play the instrument. The beauty of this type of learning technique is that you do not have to worry about being embarrassed when someone 20 years younger than you is showing you how to play the instrument. Once again, you can just learn to play for the joy of it, without embarrassment.

Learning to play a new instrument can be done at any age by any person. You do not have to be an aspiring rock god to learn, and you can be a middle-aged housewife who is looking to try something new.

All it takes is the commitment on your part to take the learning process seriously and to practice. If you do this, you will succeed in what you hope to achieve, and that is learning a new skill when you are supposed to be set in your ways.

We are constantly evolving beings and we can shape our own destiny. You are not static or unchanging, so go out and learn a new instrument and let your creative path take a new direction.
