But, truth is always bitter and, nowadays, many do not like truthfulness but hypocrisy. You deserve to be given full attention and respect.


For the average person, it is much easier to learn music when they are young and are provided with the right environment. To avoid such complaints sangeetbam the teachers are maintaining only the low standards in teaching which suit the elders and many are not aware that only the youngsters are put in loss by these low standards of teaching.

By all this, only to caution the common man of this anonymous persons I am compelled to bring this unhealthy negativity into my post for which I beg all your pardon. If this is a fantastic teacher, then you should probably spend some lesson time lfarn to chat about what you want as a student, how you feel about their attitude toward you, and sangeethm work it out as openly and honestly as you can. When I say not that I am”It is too late for you to learn music”, we should understand it as follows.

This continued for many years till I met the versatile artist T V Gopalakrishnan. All this I did only for the benefit of our kids but not for any personal aggrandizement at all. Encouraged by his statement I went out and started looking for teachers who would teach an elderly 50 year old male.


Age to start learning carnatic music –

We should consider how we define “learning music. Even some of the already employed elders, at a later period, even try to acquire a Degree in Music and switch over to the teaching job having higher salary.

What I found was that if I had found my teacher in my teens, I could have easily become a performer. So why discourage people who come forward with a true interest to learn music or an instrument?

I don’t think there is any doubt, though, that the learning is harder as we get older, as is the simple business of moving our fingers quickly and accurately on string or drum.

Thus, much of the true talent of many of these kids is being wasted. Even front ranking accompanists who obviously learned from their childhood fail to reproduce all that is rendered by the vocalists, can quote several such instances.

While chatting with him I expressed my desire to learn music and was lamenting the fact that it was too late for me leagn I was too old. But, most unfortunately, since many centuries, our stalwarts have very conveniently ignored to standardise some very important aspects like Shrutis, Gamakas, Talas, Pedagogy etc. Yes in some sangeethzm you may have to put in 10 times the effort that a child of six or seven puts in, but age is definitely not a barrier to learning.

What Mahesh3 wrote is the absolute truth. If not, it becomes more difficult and I am not able to put in the effort to work with you to bring you up to the success level I think is appropriate. But, some of our members of this lfarn had even gone to the extent of writing all kinds of rubbish in their posts taking advantage of their anonymity. In any University while all the students are younger ones, surprisingly, only in the Department of Music, we can certainly find more elderly students than youngsters.


I to sangeegham that there are many complexities in both the systems of music. Hearing, which is fairly useful in the pursuit of music, starts to diminish too early in life for some of us. Doing this will either make or break your relationship. Any claims either way are true in certain contexts.

Unfortunately, no sangeeetham before the age of 10 years are sabgeetham into any sangeegham the Govt. The corollary of this is ‘how late is too late’. Young or old, both the guru and shishya should be equally committed and dedicated for teaching and learning. I found one, who was 15 years younger than me but was willing to teach.

Thus, as you wrote, the young or old, both the guru and shishya are equally committed and dedicated for teaching and learning in their own way finding the difference only in the end of the show. The elders can even donate or pay heavy amounts to the organizers or the zangeetham or the like even to pressurize them to arrange and publicize their concerts irrespective of their standards.

I tried learning mridangam, starting at age They are ready to learn or study or practice efficiently what is taught.
