    Also, in only a few years you won't have the musical background like someone who's been playing for years and years will have. You've got a lot of work to do!

    you assume i mean i want to be a famous concert pianist who is world renowned and is the best but there are plenty who aren't but are still really good and i would just like to play piano for a living, is that so bad?
    If you want to play the piano for a living, it might be more sensible to work towards the diplomas and become a music teacher.

    The oft-quoted figure is that most 'experts' have 10,000 hours of practice. Given your late start, it is unfortunately going to be very difficult for you to catch-up to the thousands of others who also want to be concert pianists and have been playing for hours every day since they were 5.
