Day 20 Triumph and Contrast

Triumph is learning to play the Melodeon at the age of 60 and playing it in public!

My Melodeon is a Dino Baffetti which I got in January this year. I have played it at local music sessions and I am enjoying the challenge of learning new tunes. Its not like a camera because you can’t go home and process the result of your creativity – the effect is immediate and you have to hope it comes out right. Lots of practice and hopefully muscle and ear memory.

  1. Love your post! Learning to play an instrument and in public too a bit later in life than most would ever consider!! Good job!! I think our resident, songwriter and music man http://midimike.com/ would be proud of you too! Loving the music of our “neighborhoods!” blessings, denise


  2. I started learning ukulele this year as an adult & we’ve performed in public too – it’s certainly been a challenge with some victories 🙂 I love to hear about people taking up hobbies as adults. My mother had a friend who took up the art of etching (printmaking) in her 90’s – more power to us all. Enjoy playing!
