Play Piano Today With Dr. J

Why Do Adults Want to Learn to Play the Piano?

Posted on: June 4, 2009

Why am I doing this?

There are all kinds of reasons to play piano but really, the bottom line is you are going to be making music.  Make music and you can get all the side benefits like reducing stress, adding dendrites to you physical brain (that’s a good thing),  relaxing,  learning new things, entertaining friends. However,  the bottom line is you are playing piano to make music.

Here is a very important point. This made it very clear to me.

It’s like the computer used to be. It was an object that you fought and wrestled with and had to learn. It was this big old object in front of you that you had to conquer.  If only you could learn how to operate the doggone thing…

It was so important, which brand you got and how many MBs, Caches, ROMs yadda yadda yadda. Now the brand and many of the details are not that important because they are all very similar to each other.

The key here is this:

Computers have gone from being a large object in front of you
to a way for you to get around the world in nanoseconds.

You learned how to use it, especially on the web, and soon you forgot the “Computer” was there and you simply use it as a tool to find information, go travelling, play games, learn, sight see and buy things you can’t get around the corner. Now you can even use it anywhere in the world to learn to play the piano.

Or it’s like a car when we were teenagers. The car itself was the important thing. Now we use it for transportation – to get somewhere.

You want to make music. To do it you can use a piano. We make it easy for you to use the piano to make the music.

We thought of listing all kinds of reasons for you to play the piano today.  However, there is one or several reasons why you are interested in playing, these reasons only matter to you. We don’t try to guess what those reasons are.  However, those reasons, your reasons, are exactly why you should make the piano your tool of choice to make music.  So, give it a try.  Start learning to play the piano today.
