Welcome to my next installment for my 2019 Challenge for Blogging A to Z. Today’s letter is “I”, which is for instruments. As a result of homeschooling, our children have had an incredible opportunity to learn different musical instruments.
For example, our oldest son has learned to play the Cello and the Upright Bass. He has learned a lot and has shown a lot of talent. Right now, he plays with our homeschool band and strings program along with our local community band. What makes this really special is that our whole family participates together in the homeschool band program, even Mom and Dad!
Our second son plays the Baritone horn, which comes from him playing the Euphonium with the Salvation Army Corps Band while we were in Pennsylvania.
Our youngest son plays the alto saxophone, the bass clarinet, the flute, and viola and also experiments with the trombone and french horn. He desires to learn percussion, the oboe, and the piano so far.
Finally, our daughter plays the violin. She loves playing with her brothers. At home, she can be heard practicing with our youngest son on pieces they want to play together.
So for our family, “I” is for Instruments. What comes to mind when you see the letter “I”. I would love to hear from you.
