sean's band performance

IMG_0940Sean started up with the clarinet last year and took to it like a duck to water.

 IMG_0942He amazed us by loving it and learning his music so quickly--not just on the clarinet, but then on the piano as well.

  IMG_0943He really has an ear for music and can sight read better than I can. (gotta love it when my child of 11 is correcting my own timing. . . and I've been playing for over 25 years!)

 

IMG_0945He practiced quite a bit for this performance and I'm pretty sure he could play each of these songs in his sleep, without music, blind-folded, etc. 

     IMG_0947 We're very proud of him! (He and his best friend Jensen who plays trumpet)

(PS,  if you're in my ward, you might recognize a couple of heads in the crowd whispering to each other!  And speaking of my ward, I think there were at least 11 families represented in this 6th, 7th, and 8th grade band from two schools.  Great work to all of you!)

And boy howdy does he look handsome! I have enjoyed catching up on your family.
P.S. You looked really hot at the parade with your stud baseball player.

That is wonderful that he plays an instrument! There are a few that I have wanted to play most of my life but can't read a note of music. Sean looks handsome, and played so well!
