They almost say that it is impossible to start learning at 21 (my age) because it is too late. Can anybody that started late play Rachmaninoff's third piano concerto? What do you think about that?

    It all depends on how long it takes you to learn complex pieces. It takes blood , sweat, tears, dedication, practice maybe 4 hours a day, maybe more. I don't know how musical you are but you may be able to play Rachmaninoff's 3rd, but can you play it superbly is the million dollar question here. It would be beyond my dreams. I take it you can read music. Have you done music theory, and to what grade?

    Hmm...Rachmaninoff's third piano concerto is the hardest piano work! I hope you can success, but don't be angry if you fail learning it.
