The Sound of Music

The Sound of Music

My daughter decided to learn to play the flute at school. At the beginning, she wasn't very good. Now, after weeks of practice, she is actually getting pretty good. I think that by the end of the year she may be ready to perform for her family.

Playing the flute has been good for her in other ways. She is one of those for whom things come easy, like me. The thing is that music requires practice and doesn't care how smart you are. She has had to practice at this. It will be useful when she takes Calculus.

I am glad she has found something challenging. I am most grateful that she did not choose to play the trumpet, drums, saxophone, or other loud instruments.
