Am i to old?

Postby Fronkpies on Fri May 19, 2006 3:54 pm

Hello all, this is my first post :D

Is there a "cut off" point to learning classical piano?

Hehe, well, we don't know how old you are!

But, either way, one can always enjoy classical music; age imports null!

but again, there is a cut off age if you want to join a boy choir ...

btw, does anyabody here heard of the movie "les choristes"(or just the soundtrack ) ? OMG the music is so touching! (well, being the only part that I actually get when watching...)

starting off young will allow you more time and more opprotunities to refine your development. I started at the age of 14, whereas some kids start at 4 or 5. As of now they have 9 years more playing time than I have.

Do the math.


Everyone learns at a different rate and style. If I had a touch of musical talent I'd be playing stuff harder and faster. But I dont. So I stick to the "basics."
