I studied piano for a couple of years when I was very young, but after I gave that up I imagined that that ship has sailed and I will never be able to play music again. There is something about western classical music that teaches kids that the only way to be a musician is to practice an instrument 8 hours a day 7 days a week for 20 years. Either that, or nothing.
Much later I realized that music is in fact accessible to everyone - you don’t need to be a “professional” in order to play music. I started playing with various flutes, but also percussion.
