Ukulele Bass

I'm 16, is it too late for me to learn how to read music and play an instrument?

I want to learn how to play something. The piano or the guitar. Idk about the costs so that's a factor. Idk if I'm too old?

What instruments do you play?

My grandfather decided to learn how to play the guitar when he was 70 and became a proficient player within six months. He's steadily improved over the years and now plays delightfully well. He took some lessons from a college student the summer he started playing, and once he had mastered the basics he began to teach himself. I'm mainly a self-taught musician as well. I started piano lessons when I was four and took them for years and also had violin lessons for one year, but I learned most of the string instruments I play now on my own. My dad gave me some guitar lessons when I was little and I took a few more in elementary school and at a summer camp, but I really got into my groove when I was thirteen and started watching acoustic guitar tutorials on YouTube. I then started experimenting with the mandolin, electric guitar, ukulele, bass, and percussion. I'm 18 and am just now learning how to play the harp. I'm taking lessons at my college this year!

You are most definitely not too old to learn an instrument! It's actually very beneficial to learn a new instrument when you're a teen or older. It can be wonderful stress relief and a creative way to express yourself, and it sort of gives your brain a workout. I'm posting an article about it below.

The costs will really depend on the instrument you choose and the type of lessons you have. A piano is expensive, but you can find keyboards for much less. They are two distinct instruments, but the keyboard is a good way to experiment on a budget. If you really enjoy it then perhaps your parents will be willing to buy a piano. I believe you can also rent pianos. Guitars vary in price, but you can generally find ones suitable for a beginner that are less than $200. It would probably be best for you to take a couple of lessons just to become familiar with how to play and to get some personal instruction and pointers, but once you have gotten your feet wet you can learn at home. There's an abundance of free resources available online, and you can also find books about learning how to play and to read music at most libraries.

I play the piano, violin (though I haven't picked it up recently), acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandolin, and ukulele, and will hopefully be playing the harp soon!

Best of luck to you!
