Nothing is more contagious or tenacious than music. Once you are exposed it gets inside you and you can never get rid of it. It is also non-discriminating. It can be Ride of the Valkyries, In a Gadda da Vida, the Jeopardy 15 second thinking tune, your most disliked commercial jingle - it doesn't matter. Once triggered, off you go, like it or not.

Nobody has learned how to play the trumpet. It's endless. - Maynard Ferguson
Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.
By the inch it's a cinch, by the yard, it's hard!
Unlike physicians / dentists, no plumber I know of is constantly booked with appointments for service calls or installations. Still, when you really need one, it is doubtful if one is timely available and it becomes an A-Z search to find one. Still, I do know one that is a competent tenor sax player and participates in a community band when he can. Very few musicians are constantly booked even though some of these have agents that get them gigs.
interesting side-story here is that 5 years ago my Dad and Mom moved into another house. My Dad requested that I do the plumbing -- in a crawl space under the house, snakes, and spiders -- and actually a dead possum carcass -- I did the job successfully --- although, at one point, I became a little excited when I got stuck between the ground and a floor joist, and then a rat/mouse something ran by my head. I unstuck myself very quickly with only a few minor abrasions on my torso and a bump on my head. NOPE, don't much like plumbing jobs!!!!!!!!!!!!
