Music Program Beginnings

July 13, 2014

We officially started an orchestra last Sunday for the first time. We had a piano, 7 guitars, an accordion, a tambourine, and I played the violin. Our goal by the end of this year is to add a trumpet, 2 clarinets, 3 flutes, and possibly other violins. I started teaching a group violin class last week. The kids in the Christian school are taking one or more instruments each.  They now have music progress charts, next to their academic progress charts. They get a star for every half hour of practice on their instruments. The air is filled most everyday with a trumpet blasting, violins screeching, guitars strumming, tambourines banging, clarinets squeaking, and flutes piercing the air. Some of them are teaching themselves, having gotten started last year with Becky McCarthy. We would love to have more visits from musicians who would like to give a few weeks, or months to help our budding orchestra along. We are praying that the Lord can take our 5 loaves and 2 fish and multiply them for His glory.
