Are your kids in Band?

If so, what instrument do they play? And do you have to nag them to practice?

  • My son just started this year and plays the Saxophone. He doesn't have practice at night currently but I imagine once this year moves on he will. He's pretty excited about it so I'm hoping its not an issue at all.

  • My son plays the flute and he practices everyday. He would practice all day long of I let him. I am amazed by his dedication. He wants to be like this guy...

  • Yes, I have one that plays a clarinet and one that plays a trumpet. My littlest loves her trumpet and comes home and plays it all the time. However, my oldest doesn't play as much and says its boring. I would love for her to play in marching band but shes kinda hesitant. I'd say 20 minutes a day would suffice you dont want them to hate it.

  • She used to play flute in the band, but scheduling conflicts at school prevented her from being able to take band this year.

  • Yes, she plays flute in 5th grade and was in honor band. This year, she's in 6th grade band and wants to audition for an after school band group at school. She's practising hard these few days for the auditon.
