Earlier this week, Mr. B had his first band concert. Despite having to arrive 1 hour before the concert (so the students could setup and practice) it was a wonderful evening of music. Mr. B started the year playing the sax, but decided a few weeks into it that he's prefer to play the drums. He was named first chair for drums (which means he is the best performer in his instrument).
The 5th grade band performed a number of tunes, including Bethovens Ninth and Mickey Mouse March (he played the snare drum).
Here is a picture of the band...Mr. B is in the back near the center of the photo:
