JAZZ is in the air and if you find yourself inspired to pick up an instrument and belt out a tune it is not too late to learn.
Top Beat Owner Tracey Gosney said it was never too late to pick up an instrument.
"We get a lot of retired guys coming in and taking up music," he said. "They say they finally have the time to sit down and learn."
Mr Gosney said some instruments were better than others to begin with.
"Acoustic guitars are great for beginners," he said.
"I recommend beginners start with the nylon strings then move onto the steel ones.
"Because the nylon is not as harsh on the fingers as the steel."
However he said choosing an instrument was not easy.
"It all comes down to personal taste as to what instrument people take up," he said.
"We have just had a ukulele band start in Warwick and we have been selling lots of them.
"They are easier to learn and play then the guitar."
Mr Gosney warned that one would not be playing like Jimmy Hendrix straight away.
"Practice, practice, practice," he said.
"It is not something you will pick up overnight.
"You have to be determined to learn and play.
"Young kids will pick it up faster than adults, but it is never too late."
Mr Gosney said popular instruments were pianos, and drums.
Mr Gosney insisted that music can be a hobby for everyone.
"Music is for all ages and for men and women."
