Do you think limitations of your MS would make it impossible to play Carole?
If not, I think it’s never too late to learn, even if it’d probably too late to reach “professional” standard.
Today, I had my art history class. My friend, who’s considerably older than me (and I’m almost 49), arrived with a mysterious parcel.
Ever nosy, I said: “Oh, been doing some shopping on the way to college?”
To my surprise, she said: “Yes, I’m learning the mandolin! I’ve already got one, but I just fancied a Union Jack one!”
If I’d been asked to guess what was in the parcel, I’d never, in my wildest dreams, have hit on: “A Union Jack mandolin,”
An eccentric thing to take up when you’re pension age.
I asked if she was musical already, and she said yes, at college, she’d done music, and she’d been a music teacher (I knew she was once a teacher, but the only subject I knew she did at college was geology).
She said she used to play the clarinet to Grade 8, but never mastered the piano, which was a drawback, as a music teacher, because everyone automatically assumed she could do it.
But now she’s doing the mandolin!
