Free Entertainment

We just came back from my DD's 5th grade band concert. This was her first year playing the flute. All those kids did just wonderful. My DD was part of a flute trio, because she was doing so well. Nice to just hear flutes, since they can be hard to hear at times!

We had a dessert potluck after, with parents donating dessert or drinks. It was a fun way to celebrate a successful year of band.

My daughter will continue to play band into 6th grade. She's even crying tonight that she will miss band!! She's worried she will forget to practice over the summer. It will be a good excuse to get her some new music and have some band friends over to play together.

I've been renting to own the flute, which is a great deal when you don't know if your child will continue in band for more than a year. If she didn't like it after two months, then we could have returned the flute and owed nothing more than the months we had already paid for.

Now that she's made it through one year, I should see if I can pay it off early for less. I feel pretty confident that she will continue.

    Thats a great way to approach purchasing instruments. My Mom did the same when I played the flute. Glad to hear you guys had a great time.

    Hey, I was a flute player, too, and I still have my flute. Sometimes I think about selling it, but it still holds precious memories, even though I don't play it much.

    My parents did the same sort of rent-to-own deal, too.

    That's great that your daughter is so into band and so good at it! I, too, was a flute player in my wee younger years. It's something she will get a lot out of; not just from being in band, but having that appreciation for music and arts in general.
