If you're going to do it, do it.. here's our staff to give you some motivational reasons why 2020 should be the year to get into music.

The reality also is, you don't have to be wanting to forge a new career on the stage, you don't even have to perform in front of anyone (though we think it is nice to share your achievements, however humble!); playing an instrument can be entirely 'your thing'.
