Can a 65-year-old guy with a tin ear learn Mandarin?

Still working for a living, and enjoying it, but beginning to think about doing some extended traveling, perhaps in China. But to travel lengthily and effectively, it behooves me to learn the language, a task that, whatever the language, has challenged me all of my life. Do I have a shot at all of success, at my advanced age, and, if so, what does the community recommend for method, school, etc.?
