revisiting piano after so many years

Hello guys!

I am new to this forum and I hope to meet a lot of music lovers here.

I started playing the piano since I was young, but because of ultra busy work after graduating from Uni I stopped serious learning for almost 15 years. Now I am semi-retired and want to indulge myself in music again!!!

Do you guys think I shall try any diploma exam to set some targets for myself? Where shall I start after 15 years of emptiness in serious learning? :smile_40:

Welcome any input on this topic. And hope to make a lot of music lover friends here!!!

Nice to meet you here!
May I ask what's your current level of piano playing?

If that's the reason you're picking up the piano again, setting your sights to diploma exams at this stage is really weird indeed.

I understand that the exam is a good tool if one needs the diploma for certain reasons or needs motivations and challenges  to improve and refine his/her playing. 

For your case, piano playing is not even back in your life yet, why set goals and limit yourself at this stage? Just get music you used to like, music that interests you, music that you never thought you'd try and start playing. Have fun explore different types and different style of music. THEN, when you feel the need to have an exam to challenge yourself, that would be the time to consider the diplomas. 

BTW, you must have done a good job to be semiretired after being in the workforce for 15 years!
