    Do it! Just get a mute and play. Playing an instrument is a lifelong joy.

      I recently picked my guitar back up for the first time in like 15 years. I still remember what I learned! Not that I was ever good, but you don’t need to be good to have fun.

        Hell yeah! Just knowing a handful of chords is enough to impress people at a party 😁 I’m slightly more ambitious than that, but any reason to play an instrument is a good one.

      Yes. It would be good to play regularly without, though. And at serious volumes, too. But playing an instrument is great in any case. And trumpets mute really well. A flute like in the comic, for example, doesn’t unless you box the whole thing somehow.

      I really like the Yamaha silent brass system, too. It’s stupidly expensive, but works nicely and the headphones are a neat option.

        There are some digital breath controllers out there that can be used to play any virtual instrument. If I played any brass or woodwind I’d definitely check it out.
