Tonight was the Jr. High school band spring concert. It opened with Matt playing the trumpet with the 6th grade band. It's amazing how much these kids have learned since the beginning of the year. From never picking up an instrument to being able to read sheet music in this short amount of time, and then performing four tough pieces was quite a feat. I don't think I'm being biased when I say this, but the trumpet section was by far the best!
At their school, they have a jazz band that 7th and 8th graders can join; Nate joined this year with his trombone. The first song they played, Nate had a solo and I couldn't be more proud. He did so good! For my family and friends who missed the concert (and for the whole front row who left right before his shining moment), here's a clip of the song:
Sorry about the shaky in the middle, I was so excited when he was done that I forgot I was filming! The video quality isn't great, but you should be able to hear it fine.
