At Eagleridge, the HS enrichment program the kids attend,
there is a student band that meets one or two times a week.
Leigh really wanted to play an instrument so we gave her a choice of band
or to continue piano.
She decided to take a break from piano and try her hand at flute.
It was many, many hours of practicing
(and trying to get out of practicing at times)
Tonight it culminated in the final band concert of the year
The band students have really bonded.
Some of Leigh's best friends are in band.
They are kids aged 9 to 14, with a variety of experience in music.
I must say that I was pretty impressed with their final concert and dedication to their music.
They closed with the Theme from Star Wars ...
