Downsizing? Maybe Its Time For A Piano

Downsizing? Maybe Its Time For A Piano

When the kids are at home, there is so much to do with your days. Carpooling. After school activities. Events. The time seems to fly by as you keep up with everyone’s schedule.

Then you move to an empty nest stage, and you start considering your options. How should you fill your days? What interests you most? For some people, empty nest signals a time to downsize, move to a comfortable place that suits your needs, and only have things that allow you to do what you choose to do.Downsizing?

While you’re moving into a smaller location, selling off or giving away things you no longer need, its also a time to consider investing in the things you’ve always wanted to try.

How about a piano?

A piano is known for its ability to bring joy not only into your life, but of those around you as well. You can learn to play for the enjoyment of making music in your own style. And you can also discover the joy of playing and entertaining friends and guests with your new-found talents.

And the best thing about taking up piano as a mature adult is its something you can continue for a very long time. Its not difficult to learn to play in your 40s, 50s, even 60s or beyond. The desire to learn is really all you need. Find a piano teacher that is accustomed to teaching adults, and you’ll soon find yourself playing your favorite tunes.

While piano lessons will help you become more musically inclined, they can also help you become better at organizing your time and schedule as well. As we get older, we tend to systematize the things we do, giving ourselves time limits for doing things. As you prove to yourself that you can implement music into life, you begin to trust and have faith you can do other things too. Things you might not have tried before because you were afraid it wasn’t possible, suddenly seem a little bit easier. Why not try it – what have you got to lose?

If you are ready to bring a piano into your life, the best place to start is by stopping by. We’ll show you all of your options – new or used, an upright or a grand piano – whatever fits your needs best, you can try it out here first to make sure it’s the perfect fit for your new lifestyle.
