This past year, Tessa has really accomplished a lot in music! She has been taking private flute lessons and has really made great strides in playing the flute! She plays beautifully with vibrato and all. She performed at the Nativity event at Christmas time and I accompanied her. I got goosebumps during certain parts of the music we played because her playing was so beautiful. She has also performed a few other times as well. Not only has she excelled on the flute(which is her strongest instrument), but she has learned to play the piccolo and the bari saxophone. Since she was the best flute player in her middle school, she got the "right" to check out the school's piccolo and keep it for the year. She also got to play the piccolo in the final band concert for the year.
She picked up bari saxophone so she could play in Jazz band because that is something she really wanted to do. The school had an instrument she could borrow for the year as well. She really did well on it and in the process learned how to play Alto Sax as well.
And she has continued to play the piano as well! :)
