Not too late

by Boo

I just want to say how much I enjoyed this article. It seems most singing is geared towards the youngsters and it is refreshing to see something geared to us older folks.

I never sang as a child except at the required music classes at school but I never thought I could sing at all and never tried.

I started my singing not too many months ago on a whim to try it and see if I could do it and I find it is all I think about. It is really hard for me to go to my regular job when all I want to do is sing.

You touched on hearing loss and I do have quite a bit of hearing loss, nearly deaf in one ear and quite a bit in the other. These modern digital hearing aids really seem to help with it though.

My biggest problem is confidence. It sort of seems silly to be thinking about this as a late life career but it is what I want to do. I haven't sang for anyone except my husband, my vocal teacher, and a few songs on Youtube and wouldn't know how to get chances to sing in public.

Thanks again for the great article.
