Subject: RE: Easy instrument to learn
Recorders sound great, you dont need to move on. They are a real instruments. My friend Pat started recorder lessons at about 55, now at 61 she has just joined a recorder group and is loving it.
I took up concertina again at 51 and now at 58 I can hold my own in sessions.
We have a great practice session on Sunday mornings where beginners and returners and the session shy can work on tunes and have a tea or coffee and a chat. Yesterday we played for the switching on of the Christmas lights - in the warm at the community centre.
Having fun is the key.
