    Music for Beginners

    In the choir they told me to open my mouth but not to sing, and sister Agnes at piano practice rapped my knuckles with a thin stick if I made a mistake. But ... the University of Canberra is starting a new course Music for Beginners. Dare I venture back?

    I'd like you to read everything I write, Craic, and whenever I make a mistake, I would like you to tell me.

    I didn't see any spelling mistakes in Victor's post.

    I think you should do it. I have been thinking about getting myself an autoharp and learning to play. Easy and satisfying and I can pretend to be June Cash.

    Do it. Don't let past wounds hold you back.

    Yes, Victor. You should take that class.
    Then take guitar or piano lessons, so you really know.

    Definitely. Instead of "wounds", you'll find music to be therapeutic. No matter what your skill.

    Absolutely. Better to be held back by a realistic assessment of your likely skill in that area, as evidenced by an apparent track record of failure and disappointment.

    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I might be in the minority on this, but I don't think having skill is a prerequisite for playing music. Maybe it's a prerequisite for having other people want to listen to you play music. Probably, it usually is. But playing music is so therapeutic I think everyone should do it. Too often we stop doing things because we think we aren't good enough at it- if it gives you joy, being good at it is optional, IMO.
