It's generally much more difficult to learn a musical instrument as an adult than it is when we're young children.

Have you ever learnt a new instrument as an adult, and if so, which one? Was it difficult to learn or did it come naturally to you?

Not yet. I'm thinking of learning to play the ukelele, just because. I'm sure it will be tricky, but that's okay because nobody else cares whether I can do it.
I'm finding harder than anything else that I have tried. They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but I don't believe that one.I guess I'm just very slow or something. I find learning on your own is very hard, but I keep plugging at it.

Sadly no.
I would just love to play the Banjo, but as of yet no luck :(
Me too!!!! HAhahahahahahahahaha! I think we might have to blame George Formby. *LOL*

I have never learnt to play an instrument as a child, or as an adult. I don't know why it would be harder for an adult. It takes training and practice just like it does for a child. I have come to greatly admire piano playing, so if anything, that's what I would like to do.
Oh yes, I absolutely love playing the keyboard/piano. I'm really glad I followed through with this childhood passion.
Nope!

Too busy studying for my Speech & Drama Exams!
