"Dear Vidas and Ausra,
I am 56 years old and I have been playing organ for three years. I used to play the violin and piano before but not to an advanced level so I am finding the organ playing very hard. I practice for 1 ½ hours a day or more and I am improving but very slowly.
Do you think it is possible for me to study organ at my age or is it too difficult for me? Sometimes I wish to study longer when I have the time but either my neck is hurting or my back is hurting etc. It is not easy when you get older. Sometimes I just feel like giving up.
I am studying on my own as there is a big shortage of organ teachers in Malta so I find your emails and videos very useful. I downloaded some pieces a few days ago with fingering from your website. I find fingering very difficult as I do not have enough experience so these edited pieces with fingering written in are a blessing for me.
Thank you for your videos and emails."
