Hi Vocal coach, I learnt the piano as a teenager, but stopped when life got busier with girls &...
going out ...etc ! Anyway I've been thinking about starting again, however Ihad a stroke 3 years ago that has left a slight weakness on my left side. (I'm now 51) Do you think playing would work like therapy ?Do you know anyone that plays after suffering a stroke ?
It seems like it is entirely possible for the brain to remap muscle movement after a stroke, and that playing an instrument is one of the best rehab tools for achieving this. Have a look at these links for instance:

I apologize for the delay in answering your question. I am sorry to hear you have suffered a stroke but relieved to hear that you only have a slight weakness on your left side.
Playing the piano is one of the best things you can do to regain strenght in your hand, fingers and even the arm area. I have taught many people piano who have had strokes that have impaired the body and not only has it been successful in regaining strenght, but this experience is both fun and rewarding.
I suggest you interview teachers to make sure the one that works with you is patient, caring, experienced and positive.
I am interested in your experience and would like you to update me on how you are progressing.
Contact me any time you need to for help or questions.
Thank you for contacting me and I wish you recovery and the very best.
Hi, um I haven't had a stroke but I play piano and when I play i feel like a whole new person. If you really loved playing piano when you were younger then you shouldn't let this stop you. I here playing a musical instrument is a really good way of getting over illnesses of grievenses coz it takes your mind off other things.

Why did you stop playing a musical instrument?If you have previously learned an instrument, but have stopped playing - why did you stop? Do you miss it? What could inspire you to pick it back up?

Have you ever wanted to learn how to play and instrument? What stopped you from learning?
