Well, I guess you're never too old to learn something new. I started an 83 year old in lessons today. My first senior citizen. I have a middle aged lady and the others are a 4th grader, and two 2nd graders. It gives a little more opportunity that way to teach a wide range of ages. I am going to start putting my age limit at age 9, though. 8 year olds can be a bit troublesome at times.
