  1. I started drumming at the age of 60 (now63). Self taught, no formal training. It came very easy for me as drumming requires you to “feel the groove”. Been gigging as much as I want. Sure formal lessons are very valuable and you can progress quicker, but if you don’t have the feel, it’s a no-go. I know someone who took lesson for 2 years and still could not play through a basic song.
