I have been pleased with Owen learning the trumpet this year. The school has a quality instrumental music program and all students either learn a wind or string instrument or sing in the choir. Owen chose the trumpet and last week, he performed in the middle school band concert. This was his first concert with a full band and I am happy that he is getting this experience. Currently, he is in the beginning band, but next year he will move up to the concert band. I would like to thank his music teacher, Mr. Mark Elshout for his work with Owen! We will have to take him to the home of the greatest trumpet players, New Orleans someday!
