When Eli started Middle School, he only had one option for class choices: Band, Chorus or an Art/Stem combo. It should not surprise anyone that Eli chose band. The first two weeks of school were spent with the students learning about and trying out different instruments during class. Then they were able to request which one they wanted to play, and all of that helped the teacher decide what to assign them. Eli chose trumpet and he got his wish! He is very excited to start playing 'real' music, but for now we are just trying to master quality sounds.
