Did you ever wish you had a better way to unwind, escape, and distract yourself from the humdrum of life? The perfect solution may be to tickle the ivories! Playing an instrument, such as the piano, can increase cognitive development and improves eye-hand coordination and fine-motor skills. It could be the best release to unwind and add another skill to your list.

If this makes you want to run out and get yourself a piano, or maybe you have one sitting in the corner all these years, bear this in mind; The Piano Academy of Ireland is Ireland’s only school of music specialising in Piano, is enrolling now! Despite many opportunities to expand their school to include other instruments, we made the decision to dedicate themselves exclusively to what they excel in and to what we are passionate about: THE Piano! The Piano Academy of Ireland is run by husband and wife pianists, Dr. Archie Chen & Rhona Gouldson and is now celebrating its 10th year. Their lives filled with pianos, they went on to found both an annual National Piano Festival – providing a platform for all ages and levels to perform, and in 2012 the Dublin International Piano Festival & Summer Academy, for advanced students, while providing audiences with a mesmerisng concert series, also an annual event.
There are many benefits to an adult starting piano for the first time. Some of the top benefits include:

  1. Improved cognitive function. Studies have shown that playing the piano can improve cognitive function and increase brain plasticity. This can help to improve memory, problem-solving skills, and other mental abilities.
  2. Stress relief. Playing the piano is a great way to reduce stress and promote relaxation. It can provide a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment, and can help to improve overall well-being.
  3. Increased creativity. Playing the piano can help to foster creativity and self-expression. It can provide a outlet for your emotions and ideas, and can help you to develop your own unique musical voice.
  4. Improved social skills. Playing the piano can be a great way to meet new people and to connect with others. It can provide opportunities to perform and collaborate with others, and can help to improve communication and teamwork skills.

Overall, starting piano as an adult can provide numerous physical, mental, and social benefits. It can be a fun and fulfilling way to improve your overall health and well-being.
I recently started taking piano lessons at the Piano Academy of Ireland as an adult, and I am absolutely loving it! I have always been interested in music, but never had the opportunity to learn how to play an instrument. But thanks to my amazing piano teacher, Rhona I am finally realizing my musical dreams. Rhona is an incredibly skilled and patient teacher. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience, and she is always willing to answer my questions and to help me overcome any challenges I may face. She is also very encouraging and supportive, and she always makes me feel confident and capable. I am amazed at how much I have learned in just a few short weeks. I can already play some basic songs, and I am starting to develop my technique and musicality. I am so grateful to Rhona for helping me to discover my musical talents, and I am excited to continue my journey as a pianist. I would highly recommend the Piano Academy of Ireland to anyone, whether you are a beginner or an experienced pianist. This is an exceptional school, and I feel so lucky to be part of this community on my musical journey.

Providing the opportunity for adults to learn piano is the most rewarding aspect of all my work. Many adults out there may not have had the opportunity to learn piano before now or they were told that they were tone deaf, and unfortunately spent many years believing just that! Actually it is never too late to learn and as long as you have a piano, the desire, perseverance and a couple of hours to spare to practice each week, then you are bound to succeed! No adult wants the stress of going through a stiff audition to determine their degree of talent before being told if they are ‘teachable’. The piano offers the player an incredible diversity of sound which is a wonderful channel for expressing a wide range of emotions; I’ve seen people thrive after bereavement, or de-stress during personal difficulties. It’s the perfect hobby for all adults, especially as the evenings get shorter and as we spend more time indoors.

The first three months of lessons (I haven't taken lessons in a long time) have been as fulfilling as they have been challenging…on to 2010. I should probably talk less and play more…this will naturally follow as pieces are more worked up and I am less 'worked up'! I enjoy discussions about the shape & colour of the music - interpretation is a matter of personal expression, and it amazes me how much I miss in the music and how much I can learn.

I am extremely satisfied with my lessons, ie the material I learn durning the time frame.
