It’s Never Too Late to Learn to Play the Piano
To all the adults out there who have always wanted to play the piano, UNL professor Dr. Brenda Wristen has something to say: It’s never too late to learn.
With people living longer and having more leisure time, Wristen sees adults as good candidates to learn to play the piano.
Consequently, Wristen, director of piano pedagogy and keyboard skills at UNL is supervising “The Community Piano Experience.” The program offers 11 one and a half hour group piano classes that will center on basic music reading and keyboarding skills. She’s recruiting students from the community to take the classes.
Students who have never played the piano (or have forgotten their lessons from childhood!) will be enrolled in the beginning class on Tuesday nights. Students with a basic knowledge of keyboard skills and note reading will be enrolled in the intermediate class on Wednesday nights. Both classes will be held from the week of September 11 through November 27. The classes have a maximum of 16 students and will be held in room 23-2 in Westbrook Music Building on the UNL city-campus. Classes will be taught by piano pedagogy interns under the direction of Dr. Brenda Wristen and the assistant coordinator of the Community Piano Experience program.
“This is a really wonderful opportunity,” says Dr. Wristen. “It will be fun, and the students will learn more about music while improving their piano skills.”
The class, designed specifically for adults, costs $175. That includes 16 hours of group lessons, a textbook, and all additional materials.
