First of all, I can tell you that the Pipa is really difficult to learn in terms of technique. It is the king of plucked music and the most difficult of Chinese classical instruments.
However, it is relatively easy to learn and not difficult to learn. Generally speaking, all musical instruments are relatively easy to get started with, but none of them can be said to be easy to play well. So if you want to learn Pipa, it depends on what level you want to learn. If you just want to play a few pipa pieces smoothly, you still want to play it perfectly. Depending on your goals, your final path will be different.
The second is your own foundation. It will be easier for people who have learned music theory than those who have no experience with music and musical instruments at all. However, how much you have learned and how much you have mastered music theory will affect your ability to learn new instruments. In general, the difficulty of learning Pipa has nothing to do with whether you are an adult or a child. It all depends on whether you have a foundation and whether you are attentive.
The last experience I can tell you is that the first two years of learning are the most critical. As long as you pass this threshold, the difficulty will decrease. I don’t think you can learn things that are difficult or simple, but ask yourself. Do you really like it, learn it because of love, if you learn anything, you will give up after a while, no matter what musical instrument you will fail it, love it, don’t be afraid of difficulty, no matter how difficult it is Can you turn it over, you ask if the pipa is difficult to learn, I should ask you in turn, do you really like it? If you choose a good pipa and practice persistently, you will gradually find that the pipa is not as difficult as you imagined.
