If you're one of the 70% of adults who wish they had learned to play an instrument or your old high school flute is sitting in the closet covered with a thick layer of dust, it's not too late to make music.
Even if you have never read a note of music, playing an instrument can be part of your life now. The recorder is an excellent place to start. Student instruments are inexpensive, and for most beginners, progress is quick.
What about practicing? Yes, our lives are busy and complicated. But if you can manage two or three mindful sessions of 20 minutes each week, you can make real progress. Practicing isn't a burden; it's a time to focus on an activity for your own enjoyment.
