    Not only is it possible, I'd say it was a good idea.   Learning new things keeps people healthy. The harder you live, the longer you live (as long as you keep trying).

    If he has made up his mind and is heart set that it is what he wants to do then he will do matter how complex learning piano is made to seem. if you know someone that actually wants to learn,let him know he already has a fan (me)

    Yes, no problem - check out some lessons on Youtube, maybe use the virtual keyboard at for reference.

    Playing the piano is a great outlet for activists. Being expressive requires playing with passion, which activists have plenty of. The key is your openness. Can you play what's inside of you? read more

    It is absolutely possible and achievable ! I have taught senior piano classes, and all the students exceeded their expectations, had a lot of fun, increased their mental capacities and fulfilled for many a life long dream of always wanting to play the piano.  I made the class a lot of fun for them by encouraging them to bring in sheet music to songs or pieces they really love and want to be able to play.  The students began to develop a solid technique with scales, arpeggios and Hanon virtuoso exercises.  I even made contests and games in the class of who could play the scale faster or who could play a scale in the most keys etc.  Later, the students performed in a recital.  One of the students from the class enjoyed it so much they had me come to their home to teach their three children, and even though I moved away, they still stay in touch and continue to enjoy playing the piano, although they said I spoiled them and now do not want any other teacher !

    I believe anyone at any age can learn to play the piano if they have the commitment and desire for it.
