Until 2016 (before cataract removal) I realized my eyes, fingers, & brain did not move at the same speed. I donated my baritone sax (had played bari in high school) to the Shinnston Community Band and they let me into the percussion section. I do not know what I am doing, just beating on the "toys" (suspended symbol, gong, triangle, sleigh bells, etc.) and having a blast. December 2021 I was invited to do the same with the MCPAEC Community Band in the county north of me. Have not started banging on the xylophone yet with the holidays. Soon.
