Piano Guidance

About Me

Marianne Domhnaill

This blog is dedicated to people who wish to learn a musical instrument later in life. I regret not having learnt piano when I was younger, but now my kids have left for collage, I finally have the opportunity to focus on my interests. One of the main challenges of learning the piano as an adult is that it can be difficult to find the time to practice. Life always seems to get in the way – there are work commitments, family commitments, and social commitments. It can be hard to find even half an hour to sit down and focus on playing the piano. But it is possible to overcome this challenge. One way is to schedule in your practice time like you would any other appointment. Write it in your diary or in your phone’s calendar, and make sure you stick to it. Another way to overcome the challenge of finding time to practice is to be creative with your practice. If you can’t find half an hour, try practicing for 10 minutes here and there throughout the day. Or, if you’re really short on time, try doing some finger exercises or going over a few scales. Every little bit helps! I hope to inspire others who have thought about learning an instrument but never got around to it. It's never too late to start! I'll be documenting my journey as I learn the piano, and I hope you'll follow along.
