This blog is a commentary on the following fine article. "4 Myths About Learning An Instrument As An Adult." by Connolly music.
Background: I took up the drums age 50. I now play joyfully in Toronto with terrific musicians in the Jazz, Rock, and New Music areas. I still study and practice daily.

I'm a professional pianist and music educator in West Toronto Ontario. I'm also a devoted student and teacher of the drums.
