Hi there everyone, I'm 47 years old, and I have never done formal music in my life before; I was a classically trained ballet dancer (once upon a time) so music is kin even though I have no idea what those dots on the sheet mean (yet).
I have always wanted to learn to play a musical instrument; I like the challenge, the technical and academic aspects, and creative beauty of it.
I'm not afraid of learning something new; I'm not afraid of making a ton of mistakes to get to a place where I can make pretty sounds with this instrument.
I bought a second-hand simple classical guitar from the pawn shop, and managed to tune it to sound reasonable; then I did the first free lesson here and you know what? I didn't suck. I managed to get a pretty decent sound out. I'm so pleased!
Thank you; see you on the boards....
You're in the right place!
