You may think you’re too old to learn to play an instrument.

Think again.

The story by Tara Bahrampour gives several examples of people who are “embracing musicianship later in life: ”

Margo Thorning, who started taking drum lessons at age 70

Beverly Zweiben, who took her first piano lesson in her 50 s

Susan Shand, who bought her first musical instrument — a harpsichord — at 57
