Music went well today. Took trumpet and cornet in, demonstrated how they work, similarities and differences. Also borrowed the church's hand chimes. The kids love those! Some of them have never touched a musical instrument, including 2 classes of first graders, with after about 15 minutes of instruction, they are playing The Star Spangled Banner, Twinkle Little Star, Mary Had a Lamb, and even Happy Birthday. Once, I had a 6th grade class try out The Mexican Hat Dance...... not so recognizable on hand chimes. Thanks for following. Gotta get some class work done before orchestra.
