A rock band of middle-aged women? Sounds like Midlife Crisis

INDIANAPOLIS — Five women past the age of 40 are rocking in their middle age in a band called Midlife Crisis.

Forty-two-year-old Stephanie Mueller tells The Indianapolis Star that she had never sung into a microphone before she joined the group.

Now, she says she can't imagine life with the band.

All of the women are enrolled in classes at a Carmel-based music school called the School of Rock.

The School of Rock started an adult class in March and now has nine middle-aged clients, including the women in Midlife Crisis.

Like many of her fellow bandmates, Mueller has had her share of personal challenges.

She's been a neonatal intensive-care nurse for 23 years. She's also has an autistic son. And she's in getting divorced after 20 years of marriage.
