How does a little tiny 7 year old play a tuba? I thought it was funny that she got stuck with the black sheep of musical instruments.
What did they do for Ms. Colman? Was this where they learned the wedding march song? Cute idea, but a little sophisticated for beginners. In fourth grade we had a recorder unit in our music class and the fanciest we got was "Three Blind Mice."
I loved it cause I played an instrument too, the piano. A little bit of the recorder in music class at the time as well. Sam taught them Here Comes the Bride, but they had practiced it in advance at home, the big practice was to make it sound even.

Sweet ending--Karen deciding she was "the luckiest girl in the world" for being asked to be Ms. Colman's flower girl. I am just now finding out that Ms. Colman's name is Jean. Her married name is Jean Simmons. There was an actress by that name, and of course...Gene Simmons. Awesome.

This book reminded me of when my elementary school had wind instruments (I played the viola). We had a music class in Grades 5-8, and students who were interested could join the orchestra at that time, too.
You could only choose between a violin, viola, cello or bass.

Yeah I can, and actually remember how to tune it and a few notes. I found the old one and just need to fix a string. I'm out of practice with the piano too but play that well if I worked on a piece long enough, have good pitch and use it for writing.
