Bragging on my Nephew


My nephew sang and played the kazoo and xylophone in his school concert this evening.  I am continuously amazed by music teachers' ability to take a bunch of kids with a range of musical talents and interests and turn them into a cohesive group that creates beautiful sounds.  My nephew had said he had a "coveted position" in the concert; we didn't know until we arrived that he was a xylophonist (Is that the word?).  He's a cool kid in a cool world.  The future's looking bright.

  5. I know the feeling, sandy. Even after 21 years of working in a music dept at a university, I'm still amazed at what they can do with a bunch of raw kids. Kudos on your young nephew.
