Musiah Review: Online Piano Lessons Are For Adults Of All Ages

21 June 2013

Lorraine Hornby PianoEach day I am humbled and thrilled to witness the wonderful progress being made by Musiah piano students all over the world, but never more so than when a student is so pleased with the positive impact Musiah’s online piano lessons is having on their lives that they take the time to send in a video or write a review to share their success with with others.


Today, I’m very pleased to publish this latest review from Lorraine Hornby, a mature age piano student from Kingsley WA, Australia, whose favorite feature of Musiah’s piano lessons is “the enforced discipline”.


At the time of writing, Lorraine has been learning piano online with Musiah for approximately 3 months, and in that time she has made great progress, having nearly completed Level 2.


Of her experience to date with Musiah, Lorraine had this to say:




“I am a mature age student coming up for the big 70 and I had always wanted to play the piano.


I bought my piano a couple of years ago and tried to teach myself with various free lessons on youtube. What a disaster!


Surfing the web I came across Musiah and it changed my life. (Now I don't have time to make tea for my husband).


It was very hard for me to start as my fingers were so stiff but now I'm finding it much easier and really enjoying the lessons and the discipline.


I used to break out in a nervous sweat doing the auditions at the end of a song because I so wanted to pass them. So now I have passed the first level and am very proud of myself. Officially I am now a rookie.


My partner says that my playing technique has improved with passing the first level.


To all the seniors out there who think it would be too hard to learn the piano — have a go, it's good fun and it has given me a great sense of achievement.


Thanks to Musiah I really like this program as it allows me to learn at my own pace.




Sincere thanks Lorraine for taking the time to share your experience. I’m delighted the lessons are working so well for you, and I look forward to your continued progress in the coming weeks and months. Keep up your wonderful work.


I must admit, I had a chuckle at one point when reading your review. At the part where it says, “Surfing the web I came across Musiah and it changed my life”, I thought to myself, “Gee that’s great!” … and I wondered how exactly has it changed your life?


So I keenly continued reading to find the answer revealed in your next sentence… “Now I don't have time to make tea for my husband”.


Ahh Lorraine… what more could one ask for!


So now it’s official folks — piano lessons with Musiah really will change your life in ways you never imagined.


All joking aside, I must say Lorraine, your fearlessly positive approach to learning something new like piano is a great inspiration, as it really does show that age is no barrier.


I hope, having read this, that other mature age students may be inspired to follow your example and experience the joy and fulfillment of learning to play piano for themselves.

What people say about Musiah


With Musiah’s online piano lessons, you will be able to achieve in weeks or months what might normally takes years to do. From what I have seen, Musiah is absolutely the best value, the most convenient and the most fun way to learn piano. There are going to be a lot of adults who are enjoying the process of learning music through Musiah as well as the kids. I think it is going to have a profound effect on the way music is studied.
