After we got to church this morning my Grandson leaned over to me and said: I chose my instrument for 5th grade band , I asked what instrument and he said ..........TRUMPET !!!!.
About a year ago he was here for the afternoon ,and his sneaky old Grandad had a few horns out , I asked if he wanted to try one ? he said sure ,so I first asked if he could do a buzz ? after a few buzzes I handed him the Coprion horn from Conn and he played a few notes ,how special that day was !
Now I know he may not follow through, or finish high school on trumpet or keep playing ? but WOW my heart swelled with pride .
So now my challenge is to find him a decent horn and help motivate him to practice ,and keep it fun .
Maybe during the summer i can get him to play a few notes with me ? should be a blast . , literally ! .
I sure never expected to be a teacher ,but it might be a great thing for both of us ?
