Trumpet Lessons

JT participated in six weeks of trumpet lessons offered free by a college. The only catch was the college is an hour away. So we rallied Adora, gave her $15 bucks a week for gas, tolls and parking and she and JT had six weeks to bond on their 2 hour journeys. The classes were offered by undergraduate Music Ed students and divided into instrument families. JT used his hand-me-down cornet he's been practicing with over the past couple of years. I got a video of one of the songs the Brass folks played - they sounded pretty good considering weeks before many of the students were trying their instruments for the first time. Since Adora was in classes the day of the recital we made a family field trip out of it and we all were able to attend.
