Too old to start?

I'm 58. In high school I had leading roles in a couple of the musicals, so I know I can sing, but I've never pursued it seriously. Recently I've been writing some songs and would really like to record them myself. So I'm wondering if taking this course would be of value to me, given my age. Thanks for your input!

    Your age does not disqualify you. It means you have less time to waste, so you should opt-in to learning to sing soon, so that you will have more time to enjoy being better.

    We have many people of all ages, including older than you, that are either still singing, just getting started, or somewhere along the timeline between those two places.

    You may be wiser now than you were in high school, and ready to actually learn some vocal technique.

    All the Best!

    There you go. We have people at age 18 worrying that they may be too old to start singing. No way. 58? No way that's too old! 70? No way that's too old! If you FEEL like singing, then by all means get started NOW. Time waits for no one. Get started, or you'll miss out on something good!
