Music lessons can begin at any age - you are never too old to learn a musical instrument, particularly if you have played one before or already know how to read music. Many people sadly don't go with their ambition to learn to play an instrument they have always been interested in because they feel that they are just 'over the hill'. True, a younger student will find the dexterity and memory elements easier but you have the advantage of time and dedication. Don't underestimate these factors if you are considering having music lessons.
Apart from those younger students who are clearly destined to make music their career, how many teenagers either can or will give up an hour a day to learn an instrument? There is also the cost of the music lessons themselves - you are independent, they are dependent upon parents funding their hobby!
In The Bunker we have tutors who are experienced in giving tuition to more mature students. This is a great advantage to those a little older who want to learn, for example, if a tutor is geared up to tutoring children, they may have a child-sized instrument for the student to play on. They will certainly have a good selection of child-friendly music which will probably not be to your taste.
Another reason The Bunker can provide you with the best experience as a 'mature student' is that after the basics we have the staff with the knowledge and skills to allow you to play what you want! It's your call - you decide what your goal is and we make sure that the tutor pitches each lesson to your needs.We provide 1 to 1 sessions without the cost of a normal private tuition session and all within the confines of professional studios and practice rooms.
Don't let anyone discourage you from having music lessons. Without doubt, playing a musical instrument reduces my stress and is a great way to keep you mentally and physically active. It's an exciting hobby and one, I will always enjoy for the rest of my life. if you get good enough, you can even play in front of a few chosen friends at parties!
