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! :)
