For almost any instrument, music lessons for adults are readily accessible, and that includes the voice. But for adults as for children, there is not as much advertisement and promotion of music lessons. This also contributes to a popular public belief that music education is just an activity for kids. This paper will explore some of the key reasons why adults take lessons, how they profit from music lessons for adults, and ways to prevent some snags when you decide that you want to start taking lessons.

Before beginning music lessons for adults, the first question an adult has to ask is, “Why do I want to do this?” Both teacher and student must have a clear vision of what all the goals are. The choice of tool is just as important. How about that old saxophone somewhere in the building, stored away? What about the piano that your grandmother inherited from you? Or is it your urge to go out and buy a violin because that violin is what you really want to play? No matter what you pick, an adventure is just in front of you. Each instrument is distinct and individual in its own way, but for all written music there is a common set of laws, and that makes it possible to create and perform well, which is, after all, the aim of performing art.

The piano is the”motherboard” of all musical instruments. All other instruments vary from the piano, and no matter which instrument you pick, the playing or singing of music is enjoyable and engaging. But it is important to understand the basic concepts of playing and/or singing in order to create a good sound and to be precise and creative in your performance, even if “performing” is only playing for yourself. To be able to just amuse yourself, or to perform in front of an audience on stage, is very stimulating.
