How To Raise A Band Kid

It’s pretty easy to raise a band kid.  Make sure their instrument is in good working condition so they are not frustrated during practice.  I always make sure the clarinet has an ample supply of quality reeds and that the instrument is cleaned thoroughly with a swab so the pads won’t dry out.
It is helpful to constantly expose your child to live music whenever possible.  Make an attempt to play quality music at home often.  Have your child join extra band programs that are available in your area.   Also, don’t forget that regular, daily practice helps to make music fun, fun, fun!

Inspiration From Friends

I’ve taken extreme measures to ensure that this summer my family will have an ample supply of probiotics and vitamins.  My friends inspired me to make my own yogurt and plant vegetables in my backyard.  My husband and I visited our local garden supply store where we purchased planters, organic soil and carefully selected vegetable plants.  My countertop contains a glass jar filed with milk and yogurt cultures for smoothies, as well as a yogurt machine for our daily breakfast that includes fresh fruit, tea and coffee.  This summer my family will continue to grow strong with healthy foods,  music practice and, of course, exercise.
