    Started playing when I was 10, stopped when I was 20, started back up when I was 35 so that's what?

    This is a tough one for me to it goes

    39 years young......

    began trumpet at age 13 (two years of percussion before that)

    four very painful years off from age 22 - 26 (lost my dear teacher suddenly - Rapier, didn't take it well, worked in the real world and never opened the case once. I lost my way for a while.)

    age 26 to now.....and forever.

    13 to age 22 = 7 years

    26 to now = 13 years

    Total = 20 trumpet years.....and many more to come.

    Just wait until it's 80-90%.

    I am just noticing how young those 35- 45 look. Enjoy it while you got it.

    Age 42. Started playing trumpet at 13. Quit at 15. Then saw Miles Davis live when I was 28 and have been playing since non stop. So that makes 17 years on trumpet for me. And I feel sometimes that I am strugling like a toddler! :lol:

    I was 57 last June. I've been playing since I was 10 and Nov. 21 (I think) will be my 47th anniversary. I started studying again about 13 years ago. I still practice every day, with one day off a week if I can, and believe I'm still improving every day.

    Practicing has become the most enjoyable part of my playing. I rarely don't look forward to it.

    64 years old, 51 years playing the trumpet. No breaks with the exception of
    wisdon teeth extractions, and recent heart attack followed by triple by-pass surgery. I am back to three hours a day now, and I love as much as ever
