Better off getting into dancing.

Anyone can dance.  English Country Dance is easy (walk in time to the
music).  Not much singing in dance (Qui Quer Que and If All The World
Were Paper) and not much paper (If All The World Were Paper).

There's dancers in your area.

There's a lot less stress in dance -- you don't have to dance a dance
for nine months, taking a few steps per month.  You dance for a few
minutes and it's over, done, kaput.

Have you considered ... maybe ... dancing?

There's lots of dance classes and good dancers, and Philip White isn't
as annoying any more.

I didn't drop the whole heraldry thing and go into dance.
