Under the Minnesota 'official geezer rule' (over 62 and a state resident) I'm able to take free college classes at the local state university and can say from almost 4 semesters of experience - GO FOR IT!!!

I've taken a "Principles of Music" class - simple theory and some ear training - and then the "Theory I" and "Musicianship I" classes (more theory and ear training). They have helped me tremendously, as has a two semester series called "Class Piano" - basically supervised small group lessons in a multi-keyboarded classroom.

My recommendation, however, would be to audit the courses rather than take them for credit. Although I took all the exams, and probablty studied more than many of my much younger classmates, knowing that I would not receive a final grade for the course (and so could just be satisfied with what I had really learned) eliminated a lot of the possible student stress and exam anxiety.

Good luck, and keep us posted on your decision/progress!!
