Hey :)

So. My concert was GREAT! Solo was great. Except I squeaked once, but that's ok...
When I was walking back to mom and dad, EVERYBODY was saying good job, even people i didn't know :) It was good.
So I don't have a question of the week...instead I'm asking WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT CHRISTMAS? Answer that question by commenting on this post. Thanks :)
That's it...just counting down the days 'til Christmas.

Chorus is first, and they're doing usual holiday(CHRISTMAS) songs. Next is band, i already informed you on our songs...we sound really really good. Sleigh Ride is my favorite. :) After that is Sing Swing (Jazz Chorus basically) and THEY are doing all the Polar Express songs from the movie. I LOVE that movie. And last, my favorite, Jazz Band. My solo...My best friends solo...GREAT songs...santa hats...could it be awesomer?!

Winter Walk

Tomorrow is the parade, and I can't wait. I'm nervous, but I think I'll get over it...hopefully. It'll be fun. I'll update tomoorow and let you know how it went. I really have nothing else to say. OH! except my teacher was late with handing in the all county entrants so if I'm not in all county it's because she didnt send it in. NOOOO just kidding. She was late, but she sent them in today. No big deal. That's it.
Stay Musical :)

I added another animation to the right...and I added a few pictures. To see them there's a tab up at the top. The pictures are from last year. I don't have winter pictures from this year yet being that we're not really into the snow part of winter yet. So today is "Cyber Monday". I think that Cyber Monday should be a national holiday. Who's gonna go to the store when all the sales are online? Give those Wal-Mart workers a day off! And i still don't understand why people go out of their way to get up at 1 AM on Black Friday because if you just wait 3 days all the sales are in the comfort of your own home. You can stay in your PJs and slippers and not have to worry about getting run over by that old lady in the wheelchair trying to get the NICE dentures even though everyone knows she's the only one that wants them. That's just my opinion. But if you did go online and enjoy the sales I hope you took advantage and went all out.
So I'll see ya soon then I guess.
Stay Musical :)

Well, the turkeys who survived until today are good...until next year. I hope your Thanksgiving was great. And I hope that your Black friday shopping experience was...for lack of a better word enjoyable...I hope no one trampled you for that last Spanish Buzz Lightyear action figure. I want one of those. Anyway, It snowed today. I'm excited. I can't wait to go skiing. My ski club money was turned in already so it's official. What stinks is now I have to wait until January for the first trip! Ugh I can't wait. I again redesigned my blog for the winter/Christmas season. Any sugestions? I can use all the help I can get! I added a Christmas Countdown to the right of what you're reading right now. I love Christmas. All the smells, and the snow, and the decorations.
I try to update the blog weekly, sometimes more often, and YES i DO look at the comments. So what I ask you to do is comment on this post what you're favorite part of your thanksgiving was. And after that, put the #1 thing you are thankful for. My favorite part was the apple pie. YUMMM :) And I am most thankful for my family's health. I think that's most important. Well, Thanks for reading! Enjoy the last of the Autumn season before winter kicks in.
Stay Musical :)

Hello Everybody! Alrighty big news...
and wait, because there's more...
I will be playing on a float in the Winter Walk parade on Main Street with the rest of my lesson group from school and another trumpet lesson group!!! I'm SO EXCITED!!!!! Well that's about it. That's all the news I Isuppose I'll come back tomorrow and update the rest of my blog. Alright then Bye!

Hellooooo :)

So...I have the answer to the "Question of the Week" from however long ago that was (When did 'Nightmare On Elm Street' appear in movie theaters? 1978, 1980, 1982, 1984) The First movie, featuring famous quotes from Freddy such as "Don't worry, I'll kill ya real slow." was first featured in movie theaters in 1984. No One got it right. maybe next time. :)
Jazz band solo tryouts were this past Tuesday, and my teacher isn't telling us who got the solos until this up coming Tuesday.
Really nothing new other than that...I'm going to try to keep updating, I know I haven't been lately. But I'll try.
So coming up is Thanksgiving, which i like to think of as a big holiday. One of my favorites. I love watching the parade on TV, and the HUGE turkey we eat for dinner. I heard the new balloons this year are goin to be Kung Fu Panda, and Greg Heffley from Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The broadway performance this year should be from the current broadway shows "Wicked", "Mamma Mia", or " The Addam's Family".
OH! and I found out that this year the high school play my school puts on will be Beauty and The Beast. I think they should've done Wiked being that they did the Wizard of Oz last year. I guess it only made sense in my head...oh well. I don't participate in the play so it doesn't really matter to me. ANYWAY...I believe that's it. So stay musical and enjoy the last of the fall weather before it's SKI SEASON!!!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!! :)

So, halloween is tomorrow, but tonight I have a halloween party at the church. I'm going as the Wicked witch of the west. But I think tomorrow for trick-or-treating I'm gonna go as a zombie or a skeleton faced dude or something else that seems interesting.
As you can see, i'm trying something new on my question of the week. It's a trivia question this week. DO NOT LOOK IT UP! I want pure knowledge or guessing. Thank you :)
So thats it. I'll post tomorrow or Monday on how much candy I get! :)
Get lots of candy and have a spooky, scary, and creepy Halloween...mwoohahahahahahahaha! (deep-voiced evil laugh) :)

Halloween Costumes...

It's now official. We have decided our halloween costumes. I stuck to my word and will be the wicked witch of the west from the wizard of oz. My brothers Tyler and Christian will be ninjas in little black ninja uniforms and swords...i love it. Jimmy will be a fireman. He's so cute :)
So today my grandparents (<3) are coming so they can see Tyler's football game tomorrow. GO WILDCATS!
I was baking last night and today for dessert later, and yes grandma, i did make those apple donuts ;), they came out really good. I made a banana apple bread last night too. It's really good, but really heavy and filling.
I think we might carve pumpkins tonight. So maybe if my camera decides to work today, I'll post pics.
That's about it...soooo...bye! :)

Almost Halloween

So as you can see I've redesigned the whole blog to fall and Halloween colors. I love it! :)
Nothing really new and important...just same old stuff in music. I have a lesson tomorrow. And I believe I'm being tested on band music...great.
Jazz band is also afterschool tomorrow. So if anything new happens with hot chocolate I'll let you know :)
Well that's about it. We went pumpkin and apple picking though a few weeks ago. I made a few things with the apples. Like apple crisp, apple scones, and mini Italian apple donuts. Everything was great except the donuts. Haha I tried. But now I'm done. So I'll see ya soon :)

Sad News

I got some sad news Tuesday band teacher Mrs. Edwards says that us (Jazz band) can't play Hot Chocolate for the concert. It's too advanced for us. BUT! she did say that if we can pull off the alternate song she gave us, Frosty the Snowman, then maybe we can work on Hot Chocolate and see how far we get. I'll let you know what's going on with that.
Halloween's coming up soon. My mom says we should all be a character from the wizard of oz...I think I'll be the Wicked Witch of the West.;) Just for fun.
One more thing before I go...I believe we're possibly going pumpkin and apple picking tomorrow. I'll take some pics and post them under My Pictures. We'll get some nice big bright orange pumpkins just for you! :)
So I'll update as soon as I upload the pictures to the computer, and as soon as I find out about Hot Chocolate. Bye!

Jazz Band

WOOHOO!!! I made jazz band :)
audition went well. My teacher didn't make me do any scales, which was a big surprise, but even if she did I had a few ready :)
sightreading was awesome! I had the song on my iPod, so I listened to it a lot before! I knew what it was supposed to sound like! I loved it!
The actual audition piece was great! I didn't mess up at all! My teacher played an accompaniment cd to play with...the same cd I played with during summer band! Wow I'm reading this over and I sound a little full of myself...whoops
anyway, everything went well...I'll update soon!

When the words "first day of school" come up in a conversation, the average kid between the ages of 7 & 15 would normally react by flinching, "ugh"-ing, or hiding away in a cave somewhere. Well not me. I've waited for the first day of school all summer long. Today was my first day and all I can say is that it was amazing. :)
I have classes with all my best friends, and my teachers are great. It's gonna be an awesome year. =)
Jazz Band auditions will be next week in school...I'll let you know how that goes. Wish me luck!!!
That's about it. I'll update my pictures soon! Next time I get the chance. And I'll update on school stuff too! Enjoy the kid free months ahead! :)

Yesterday i went to the beach near my grandparent's stuff! I love the beach! Today I shall be leaving to go to "The Country House" with my brothers. Can't Wait! Having lots of fun here!
Music stuff: Missed a lesson and jazz band rehearsal this week, but I'll be back to go to next weeks.
Pictures: When I get home I'll upload pics and show them to fans...that I love oh so much because it's just proof to my mom that yes, people do indeed like me.
But seriously, my only followers are my mom and grandma. Thank you! <3
Anyway, enjoy Summer (what's left of it anyway), and I'll keep updating.
Stay Thirsty My Friends. ;)

Fame and Fortune

Today me and my cousins and brothers made a "movie" on my grandparent's front yard...we like to call it "What would have happened if Dorothy took the red brick road instead of the yellow brick road." that, or "Dorothy's End". It was SO fun!!
I can't wait until Monday...BEACH BABY! yeahhh, i think I'm turning into my dad. for the past two months all I've heard from him is "VEGAS BABY!". yes it does indeed get annoying after 3 times. last i heard from my mom, they were in the M&M store. pretty cool. well, that's about all I have to say. OH! and i started summer band lessons and jazz band. EXTREMELY easy audition piece for jazz band next year. NOW I'm done. alrighty, so I'll keep updating with BEACH pictures, and more summer fun. and from the wise words of my Grandpa, "stay thirsty".

Summer Vacation

So far, nothing really special has happened yet. I think the next plans I have is the family picnic my family has every year. So that'll happen at the end of the month. Uhhh...nothing really. Just been hanging out at my house. So I suppose I'll update next time something important comes up. Happy Summer! =)

July 4th Weekend

This weekend I'm going to the Catskills for July 4th. Possibly a fair on Saturday or Sunday, and then fireworks Sunday night. I'll be home Monday to hopefully update, so I'll see you then (not literally but you know what I mean). Have a very Happy July 4th! :)

Friday, June 25, 2010


Today is officially (to me anyway) the first dy of SUMMER! Done with seventh grade. My mom is not happy with me at the moment. Why? Because I've just told her that a year from now I will officially be a freshman. YES! She says she's not old enough to have a high school kid. Yeah well, it's gonna happen anyway. :)
Plans for the summer? I believe I'll be at the "Country House" for July 4th weekend. I'll be at my grandparents house for about a week while my parents are gambling away at Las Vegas!! Good Luck! Maybe we'll go to the beach while we're there, visit the light house, no plans yet really, but it'll be fun either way.
Song updates: I'm not much further than I was last time I told you I was writing a song! It'll get there though!
Anyway, Enjoy Your Summer, and I'll keep updating! :)

NYSSMA results

I just got home from my NYSSMA solo evaluation. I got a 26/28 as my score. I'll take that! The scales I played were Bb, D, and Eb. Phew! I'm glad that is done and over with!

Thursday, June 3, 2010

NYSSMA Tomorrow!

NYSSMA tomorrow at 5:45!!! I'm so excited! But for a ten minute evaluation, it's at a school 1 1/2 hours away! So I'm taking the school bus to the high school, then we leave at 8, and get back here at about 9:30. But that's the only bad thing so I can deal with it. So wish me luck, and I don't think I get my score out of 28 until the end of the year, but I'll let you know as soon as I find out! Bye! =)

Saturday, May 29, 2010


I'm now working on my NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association) solo which I will be performing in front of a judge in shanendahowa hs. June 4th at 5:45. The solo is "Presto" composed by Muzio Clementi. Wish me Luck!

Good Morning!

Good Morning! Today I'll be heading out to Long Island to go to my cousin's first birthday party. It's a pink theme, so we all have towear pink. I spiffed up my shirt with a nice saxophone silhouette and music notes. I LOVE it! Talk to you Sunday or Monday when I get back!
