    Hi, Suzi, thanks for starting a discussion in this brand new forum. I began learning harp last July at the age of 72. Before attempting it, I researched whether older beginners would have a hard time with this instrument. On another forum, there was an inspiring post from a woman who started as a complete beginner at the age of 79. She was writing at age 84, explaining about how much joy playing the harp had given her life over those 5 years. That post really resonated with me. I figured if she could do it, I could too. The harp has brought me so much enjoyment during these past eight months. Looking forward to meeting friends on the forums here and continuing this fascinating journey.
