Nick's First Concert

Nick started playing clarinet in the 5th grade beginning band this year. And he and his bandmates recently performed a few holiday numbers in what was their first concert.

Nick got all dressed up in his long-sleeved, button-down shirt and non-jeans pants and was all business as he played his holiday carols.

He says he's enjoying the clarinet, but wants to try the saxophone next year ... even if it is bigger and heavier and more of a chore getting it to and from school.

I'm glad to see him trying something new; I didn't even have to prompt him, he had already decided he wanted to take up a band instrument before he even asked back when school started in August.

I love his enthusiasm and the performance was so sweet. But one thing's for sure: they don't call it beginner band for nothin'.
