Little Drummer Griffin

When picking electives for this school year Griffin decided to take band!  We pretty much left this up to him. Josh and I both played the saxophone in middle school! Yep, this football/baseball player and cheerleader were band geeks! It was fun but I didn’t miss it in high school one bit! haha! Nor do I remember how to play or even want to play. No thanks! Griffin talked about wanting to play the sax as well so I figured that is what he would choose. We went to band instrument selection night last week. Each child tried out the sax, flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone and percussion. They received a rating from 1-5 on each instrument to help figure out what they should play. Griff scored high on the percussion, trombone, flute AND sax! The band director just left it up to him what he wanted to do.

And he picked percussion!

Of course he did! What boy doesn’t like to bang on things? I am glad he chose this because he is about to get braces in a few weeks and that would not be fun. Getting braces and trying to figure out how to play an instrument on top of that!

He now has a percussion set to practice with that has a snare drum and bell set and who knows what else.

So basically now he’s bangin’ around on everything in creation!IMG_20140815_191546
