Sarah was awarded the Outstanding Woodwind Player trophy tonight at the band banquet for 7th and 8th grade band. She really has worked hard this year and private lessons have been amazing for her. Her boyfriend, Kyle, was the Outstanding Brass Player, he plays trumpet, for the 7th and 8th grade band. We are very proud of both of them.
Lest Hannah feel neglected, she is doing amazing with her piano lessons. Sarah and I were never able to work together for her to take piano from me. Our personalities were like oil and water with a lit match. BUT, Hannah is very different in that regard and I’m having a really good time teaching her. I know it shouldn’t amaze me, but I’m so impressed with how much her two years in Kindermusik Young Child has increased her ability to read music and to be musical while playing. I wish every potential piano student would be able to take Young Child first. It really has removed many of the stumbling blocks young players face.
