Zachary has always been interested in music and always is humming actually got in trouble for it in 1st and 2nd grade so he told us he wants to be in the band next yr at middle school. We told him it would be alot of work and practice but I think he will love it. My dh and I were both in the band. When dh asked him which instrument he wants to play he answered the trumpet OUCH my ears LOL but I believe Zachary will be good in it. We are letting him decide what he wants to do since it is him that will have to participate but he is really excited about all the new things he can do at middle school next yr. He will be in most of the advanced classes so it will be alot of work but he can do anything he wants to as long as he applies himself! I am very proud of him and he is getting awards tomorrow at his elementary graduation and he also told us he has a surprise for us at the ceremony and not to miss it!

My DS is going to play trumpet too! He's very excited about it. They are doing a band camp for one or two weeks before school starts. He'll still be in elementary then go to the middle school/high school the next year.

Be sure to tell us about the surprise! I think trying band is a great idea. Sam plays the alto sax, and I didn't realize how LOUD it would sound in the house, LOL! I didn't get a chance to join in the last band discussion. At our school, Sam stays for band after school one day a week. The school provides instrumental lessons once a week, during the school day. He misses part of a non-academic class, sometimes just lunch recess. (The time rotates through a cycle so the kids don't miss the same time slot each week.)
