I'm almost 50 and started playing horn when I was 9. I've never played professionally but I still play regularly and continue to improve. Music is a spark that becomes a fire that never goes out. I've played together with elementary school kids and 80-year olds and still made music (admittedly not at the level of the Presidio Brass). Kudos to Presidio Brass for spreading the gift of music.
