..another mere stripling in the age (Nurse! Bring my Depends!) stakes, Don
So what is the LBC?
At 58 I learn something every day, and I plan to keep doing that untill I drop off the music-stand. At the moment it's Shakuhachi.
I'm learning "'Dawn Mantras"", by Ross Edwards, which also includes an intro on Didjeridu and a childrens choir.
Well worth having a listen to if you can track down an MP3 of it or a CD.
Edwards is, I'm proud to say, an Australian composer, and this is one of the most striking pieces of music you will ever encounter, I'm sure of that.

LBC stands for "Late Bloomers Club". We coined the phrase because there seemed to be so many of us adults out there who didn't learn music in our childhood but are bent on learning it now. We all seemed to be sharing some of the same negative feelings that come along with learning something new, so we created this " adult support group" so that we don't talk ourselves out of continuing on with our music. It is a fun tool and it has helped me.
You may not have realized this Pete, but you are already a member of the LBC. Not because you are just learning, but because you are a teacher with the knowledge of the frustrations that any student, no matter their age, can encounter.
Just read all those threads and you'll see what we mean.
Cheers.
