    I started at age 30 with a Bach TR-300...I am still 30 :). I am taking lessons and pretty much practicing 1 to 2 hours a day. I personally think it is never too late to start anything.

    I've been playing since 5th grade (~10 years old), so that's about nine or ten years now. I'm still in love with my LA Benge/Bach 3c combination I started with.

    I started experimenting with music at 7.
    But I first played trumpet at 13.
    I'm now 17 so it's been 4 years roughly.
    My first horn was a Dynasty Quick Adjust.
    It was a really bad horn, only used for marching.
    But it got me started :)
