And the Band Played On . . . Sort of

     Jackson had his first band performance last Thursday night.  This is the first year they are able to take band in school, and he's very excited to be a part of it.  After much debate, he decided to play the drums.  Jeremy and I both played instruments in middle school, so we are excited for him to get involved in music.  Maybe we'll start our own band.  Guitar, flute, and drums. That could work, right?  We got to see what they've learned so far, and some techniques they are using in the classroom to learn their instruments.  The kids did a great job and I can't wait to see how far they progress this first year!

Parent's also got to play.  The kids assignment was to teach a parent to 
play Mary Had a Little Lamb on their instrument so they could participate at the concert.

Refreshments!

Jackson's best friend Max is also in percussion
