Actually, Thier, it is from a string teacher - our little community is one of the last that has a great music program, and there's string, brass, woodwinds and vocal teachers. In 4th and 5th grade, they receive instruction every other day. Beginning in 6th, it's a daily 45 minute class. My older boy played the stand-up bass in 4th, and didn't love it (although I did!) and went to clarinet in 5th. This is year 2 for him, and he's really good and likes it a lot.
I'm thinking my younger will do better with wind next year as well.
(They are only allowed strings in 4th, and then wind comes in at 5th. Percussion is a possibility beginning in 7th, however, you can try out in 6th if you've been trained)

Don't know yet about the son...

You're so fortunate to have a good music program. Alas, they've died out in almost all the schools in favor of sports. The graphic and musical arts are such an important part of our education, and it's a shame that they're not respected as they should be among educators.

Best to your little fiddler...I hope he finds the instrument he likes!

thanks!
I totally agree on how lucky we are here! That's one of the (many) reasons we love our little community. The best part is the big music festival they have in June. All 6 elementaries, 2 middle schools and the high school all play at a college, together. It's amazing!

I did, and it'll take you about an hour to read the last one....
(I didn't realize I had DC on when I was taking a survey for the last hotel I stayed in. They lied when they said it would "take a few minutes" ...try 30!)

Here's a lemon brownie for you - I just put lemon extract in the batter, and then mixed lemon juice and powdered sugar together for a glaze and topped it with a sugared lemon peel.

I'm off to donutman now. I desperately need my doughnuts. They are calling me.

Sushi, bundle up and have your herb tea.
*putting the fan back on for white noise*

Here's your teddy
*tucking it under sushi's arm and fixing the blanket so it's straight*

G'Night!
