  • I haven’t myself, but my 18yr old just recently bought a Ukulele and is teaching herself :)

  • I haven’t but I want to. I’d like to learn guitar. Hopefully I will in the future, my plan is to do some paid lessons and go from there.

  • I self taught myself piano in my late teens but gave it up because of work commitments, and then family commitments …. I’d love to take it up again!

  • I have note learned as an adult I had lessons through school for many years and after a 20 year gap am trying to pick it up again but it is much harder finding the time and having the discipline now

  • Tips – plan time to learn and to play and add it to a schedule.

  • Absolutely! It is never too late to learn to play instruments and to sing too.

  • Ooohhh I’d absolutely love to learn one. If I do I’d probably self teach, there are so many fantastic tutorials on YouTube these days.

  • I started learning the violin in my early 20’s! I did lessons for 2 terms but then gave up. I was the only adult and felt super weird! And I did end up selling my violin as I didn’t stick to it. But there are so many you tube videos you could watch and learn from home. Good luck!

  • Nope, I never did. Even if my husband bought me a guitar twenty years ago to start. I should have gotten some guitar lessons, but I never did.
