GUEST,sarah Am I too old to learn? (144* d) RE: Am I too old to learn? 04 Jul 09


saw this thread whilst looking around and wondered if you still play the melodeon Maggie? and have you started any instruments..would be good to hear!

You are never to old to learn an instrument...I felt like I was old starting flute and singing at 24, I started a folk music degree 2/3 yrs later and have played in a good few band since.
I have taught myself to play mandolin, ukulele and a bit of guitar...am going for it with the fiddle at the moment..definitely the hardest instrument I have tried but love practising it..its the instrument I always wanted to play but never had the opportunity before.

A friend started fiddle in his forties, gave up his job and succesfully graduated from a music degree some years later...

no end to the possibilities!

Worst thing about starting a new instrument is being at that 'beginner' stage again, you know what it should sound like but it's not happening yet..cant wait for the fiddle to start sounding decent when I play it!
