Hi, I am feeling a bit silver, 59 and just started the harp one month ago. Today is my 1 month harpiversary! I am a musician. I played clarinet and also sang. I paralyzed a vocal cord permanently and had taken up playing the flute about 20 years ago. I have been playing ever since, in a small band as well as small orchestras. But I have a permanent lung infection which is making the large breath support challenging, and just like taking up the flute when my vocal cord was going I decided to begin harp as my breath support is going. I wanted to play harp at 8 years old but my parents couldn’t afford that. So here I am 51 years later! I began the flute just prior to my 40th birthday and now harp before my 60th!
Does anyone deal with arthritis or hand tremors? I have both. The tremors aren’t too bad but it does get in the way a bit.
