Is Age a Number? | Success Beyond The Score Ep. 2

This episode starts recalling an emotive event in British television: the audition of Susan Boyle to Britain’s Got Talent. At the time (2009) Susan was 47 years old. In case you don’t remember it, the whole video is available in YouTube.

There is a lot to unpack about this situation, and a lot to think about age and art. That is what Millicent focuses on for this episode: how do you think about your age? How do you feel about it, and about the age of your peers? Is it elevating your music, or decimating it? Listen to what Millicent has to say about this topic.

  1. Aging is a privilege denied to many, with this in mind and encouragement from musician friends I am learning music and sax in my 60’s, I accept that my memory fails me from time to time and it takes me longer than it used to upload data to my onboard hard drive (brain) . I also accept I am unlikely to ever know it all but I’m having the best time learning. I am fortunate to have many music friends who give me the opportunity to join in with them improvising in the jam sessions. I have had the occasional cutting remark (not from musicians) querying that I have left it a bit late to start playing, I give them a big smile my response to this negativity is its never late to learn a new skill – and perhaps that should get out there and learn something new today – . stay young x
