School of HONK – A Joyful Noise

Sunday, February 12th 2017

After what I made my kids do yesterday, here is what I made the Boy do TODAY:

2017-02-12 HONK PRACTICE [1:40]: 

 

Here in our town -on our own STREET- the incredible HONK Band practices in this beautiful art center I’d never even seen before.  With his trumpet and a bit of understanding bestowed upon him by his Grandpa Bruce, Gavin reluctantly dipped his toe in this world today at his mother’s behest.

He may not have liked it that much but I *LOVED* it.   And strangely I don’t feel much regret in forcing his exposure to this spectacular scene.

The Honk folks are SO welcoming; literally anyone can walk in and help themselves to an instrument, get a little training and give it a whirl.  Like, if I didn’t already have a career occupying me most Sundays I believe I would be THERE.

Hopefully I didn’t ruin his chances of ever liking the trumpet a little.  We’ll see, with as little pressure as possible… except when he’s blowing into the mouthpiece.
