“Am I not too old to start?”

Quite a few of you are asking this on various forums. There are also people around 30 and 70 – so I can say for sure that one group would already know the answer to the other 😊
The truth it is, for me the question is always what purpose you want to start, or start again, singing, playing the guitar, the cello, and so on.
For someone to be a professional musician, of course, sometime between the ages of 8 and 14, it is worth starting in general. But even here I know singers who started at the age of 16-17 and are often popular artists today.
The good news is that if you don’t want to graduate, but you want active music to become an ever-possible program – meaning you can sit at the piano anytime you get tired, or you can be the most memorable moment of the company’s Christmas party when playing the flute and everyone was surprised – so if you want to reach your potential as an amateur musician, the situation is quite different.
If you feel that now, at this point in your life, you have the opportunity and desire to cut into it, then I am absolutely sure that you are not late.
Think about it, if you just sit down next to the instrument once every week for the next 1 year, or go sing with one of your favorite bands instead of not doing so… how much more experience you will have next summer than if you missed it now?
I think playing music is both a stress reliever and a community experience, but more importantly, it’s also a unique opportunity in terms of spiritual recharge. If you have just come to the moment to consider this, I am sure you will find joy in it 😊
Come and read about our latest trainings – and choose what you would really like. What inspires you the most and what you want to know more about?
The rest of it next year will have been history anyway 😊
