Well...being that only one person answered my question of the week...BBJ wins with all answers correct! Congrats! I would've taken two different answers. But first, here's the question again. WHAT SONG DID FERRIS BUELLER SING ON HIS DAY OFF AT THE PARADE? SONG AND ARTIST, BONUS POINTS FOR THE YEAR THE MOVIE WAS MADE. so...the first correct answer is "Danke Schoen" by Wayne Newton. The second correct answer would've been "Twist and Shout" by the Beatles. The year the movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" was made was 1989. So congratulations to BBJ, your prize is on it's way :)
NYSSMA is this Friday. I have my time, 5:25pm. It's a pretty long drive for a 10 minute evaluation. But I think it's worth it. Once again, the score is out of 28 points. We're judged on our tempo, dynamics, rhythms, articulation, posture, technique...that kind of stuff. So I'll let you know how that goes probably on Saturday.
By the way, sorry I didn't update this past Saturday. I was in long island having a great weekend with ma familia :) we had a very Happy Easter!
AND! I should probably tell you that today in my jazz band rehearsal, I tried out for every solo possible, I bombed one of them, but I suppose the rest were good. Umm yeah I'll let you know on that too as soon as I know what's going on.
My spring concerts this year are on 2 different days, one for jazz, one for 7/8 band. The jazz band concert is May 18, and the 7/8 concert is May 19. It may seem like awhile, but in rehearsal time, it'll go by so quick.
That's all I have to say...well th-th-th-th-th-th-th-that's all folks!
Stay Musical :)


  1. I would like to wish you good luck on your NYSSMA (tho I'm sure you don't need it) & congrats to BBJ for winning your question of the week! (I really didn't know)

  2. Google it, it says 1986! Da King is always right. Oh yeah, Oh yeah, I got it, I got it!!!!
