More and more adults are starting to take instrument lessons they want.

There is no such thing as a late age for learning musical instruments. Our brains are always ready to learn new things for the rest of our lives. If you use your comprehension as an adult, you can achieve greater learning outcomes than relying on simple repetition of trial and error.

 

Things to consider during instrument lessons:

1. Select your favorite repertoire
Adults have their own learning needs and interests. It gives adults a sense of accomplishment and pleasure. The most important thing for adults who start musical instrument lessons is to play music. They can start learning today by containing their favorite songs and finding arrangements that fit their skills. Being able to play a sophisticated and complex-sounding melody is exciting for most adult students. As a beginner, it is important to choose a music that is not too difficult and is expected to be mastered in practice. 

2. Understand the importance of practice
The development of instrument lessons depends greatly on the time and effort you put into practice. Adults can be pushed back by life priorities, overwhelmed by busyness, and not always practice as much as they want. It is important to do it daily and steadily even for a short time. The more you listen carefully and concentrate during practice, the better it will be. Find time to practice regularly and create a 'practice schedule' to make better use of your time.

3. Patience
Adults are usually too ambitious and sensitive to frustration. It is normal to feel clumsy or anxious when learning a new instrument, and it is important not to let those feelings discourage you. If you criticize yourself too much, you lose interest in the performance. From the beginning, you should know that your first performance will sound very different from the stereo at home. Be flexible and patient and be tolerant of yourself. Let's not rush! The important thing is not the speed of learning, but the fun of learning.

4. Networking
Adult instrument lessons can help you connect with others through your favorite music, or make new friends if you want.
Many music schools offer private and group classes as well as performances and social opportunities. You will be able to
meet other people taking instrument lessons and interact with the younger generation. These important social links can
improve the effectiveness of taking instrument lessons, making them more enjoyable and beneficial.

5. Setting goals
What is the most important goal of your instrument lesson? What kind of music style do you want to play? What are your
specific goals? For example, reading music, listening to music, learning chords, improving keyboard skills..and so on.
What is my big musical dream? For example, you can perform for others, play with other musicians, or record an album.
It is very helpful to clarify the goal. If you set a specific arrival point, such as this, chances of not giving up doing the
lessons will increase. When realistic goals are set, it is much easier to maintain motivation.

6. Good teacher
It is essential to find a good teacher who meets your musical needs and goals. Teachers are tasked with encouraging and
inspiring the achievement of goals. It also requires professional teacher guidance when adults want to learn how to read
sheet music so that they can learn to sing accompaniment, learn improvised jazz or blues, and arrange music.

Learning musical instruments for adults means having fun and getting out of everyday life, bringing advantages such as
improving quality of life, social contact, personal challenges, and a sense of accomplishment. 
The most important thing is to enjoy music – that's what it should be all about.
