March 18th, SOLSC ‘19

Band Concert

Tonight is the night. The sixth grade band concert. Seven elementary schools will attempt to come together as one. I have mixed emotions. This can go one of two ways; really well or really badly. I’m guessing it will sound something like breaks squealing, dogs barking and cows bellowing all at the same time.

I am pleased that our school district still offers band at the elementary level. I know that the music teacher gives all she can and the students need to show off their “skills.” Yet is it wrong of me to wish for earplugs?

I myself am not musically inclined.  My husband is. Thank goodness the kids have his musical talent and not mine. In fact, our youngest- the one playing tonight- is using his old clarinet.

“Hot Cross Buns” here we come!

  1. I bet many parents think this! 4th and 5th graders at our school learn to play the recorder in music class. Sometimes they try to practice during an indoor recess. Does it sound the same to music teachers? Hmmm. Thanks for sharing!

  2. It did sound very much like “sound something like breaks squealing, dogs barking and cows bellowing all at the same time.” However, it is music to my ears to see young ones embracing music which could lead to such wonderful things for each one of them: passion, emotion, creativity, life-long friendships, and most importantly the love of music. In a time of travel-everything sports, it is nice for them to be involved in the arts, be it instrumental, vocal, visual, or dare I say, theatrical.
