I posted an entry awhile back. I started piano lessons at age 5 with my mother. I'm currently sixteen, and have been off and on with piano, due to issues with teachers. (After my mother wasn't able to teach me, I learned from a lady who later got too sick to teach anymore, etc., etc.) Anyway, I got serious about playing piano two years ago, thanks to my oboe-playing.

Anyway, I am currently a junior in high school. I am involved in a post-secondary program that allows me to take college courses at a local university. I recently found out that I am able to get private lessons at the college for free, since the high school covers the cost of tuition with the post-secondary program.

I already get private oboe lessons, of course, so I am going to sign up for private piano and voice lessons. My question is, is it too terribly late for me to become advanced on the piano? Is there hope? Does anyone know of any real-life examples of people who started late on piano?

I really wish I would've stuck with piano as a young child. I could've been a pretty decent pianist by now! I can't change the past, but if I could do anything for the rest of my life, it would be to play piano. Not necessarily as a job, but for enjoyment. I know I don't need to be an incredible pianist to enjoy it, but I'm just wondering if there's hope. That's reasonable, right?

Any help or encouragement would be deeply appreciated.
