Lauren is thoroughly enjoying playing in the homeschool band! She had the opportunity to play at a Christmas concert last Tuesday night. I wanted to share her performances for loved ones near and far away who would have liked to have joined us.
This last one was my favorite of the evening.
I hear Lauren practicing long and hard everyday, but I admit that the long pauses in her music and the odd portions which have no true rhythm on their own, sound much more lovely when I get to hear her perform with the entire band. The other instruments fill in the gaps; they add their melody to her harmony and vice versa. I love hearing them play! It is wonderful that she is learning music and teamwork at the same time. Our band directors, Mr. and Mrs. Haas, are excellent!
Lauren is in the “Advanced Band”, which, as the director explained to us, means you have been playing your instrument for 3-5 years. For Lauren to be in this category after only 1.5 years of experience was a great blessing! I know her Papa would be pleased, and I can’t help but hope that he was able to pause for a moment in Heaven to listen.
Thanks for reading, and for watching.
