I agree that starting now I also have the time to allocate to the task of learning and the fun of learning whereas if I had started when I was still working and trying to make ends meet financially I wouldn’t have had the time or the money to be this comfortable. Yay for us old farts!
I turned 60 last year and began the fiddle this March. I practice daily and while I see progress, I’m a bit impatient and wish I could sound better faster…
The good part is that I now have the time to practice. I’m trying to talk my husband into starting on banjo 😉
Good to see more older adults taking music. I think we as adults take it more seriously than we did when young- we know the importance of practice and have more time than a young person. I know I am really having fun and just can’t get enough of learning more!
