Firebird Used to be a Car; Now it Makes Music!

Summer is finally in full force and I couldn’t be happier. Why? There are a lot of things to do and enjoy in the summertime. The city has a lot of events lined up for the locals and tourists and I am so looking forward to watching the events. I do hope we will get to watch each event. There are concerts every Friday in the summertime and is free for everyone to enjoy.

There are also festivals and the like. Well, we have already missed one free live concert today because the weather didn’t cooperate at all. We had a severe thunderstorm. I do wonder if the concert even took place.

Nonetheless, there will be days that the weather will be nice for sure. Don’t you just love watching live concerts? I love watching those guys strumming their electric guitars which could possibly be a gibson firebird. How I wish the hubs could play like them too. It would be awesome!

Could He Possibly Be a New John Lennon in the Waiting?

Tomorrow will be another big day for us. Why? It’s my son’s Spring Concert at school. I did mention here before that he plays the trumpet in their school concert band and tomorrow will be a special day for them because it’s the second concert of their music career, the first being the Winter Concert which they had last December.

We’ve been looking forward to tomorrow and I am so excited to see him play the trumpet again. He certainly looked like a pro when he played it in their Winter Concert debut. I do wonder what he would look like holding a Beatles guitar. I bet he would look like a pro too although I must admit, he doesn’t know how to play the guitar. I am just imagining. LOL. Then again, maybe my hubby will teach him to play the guitar.

I am so proud of my kiddo!

He’ll Toot His Way Into Spring

Spring has finally sprung and among many things, there is one special occasion that our family is so looking forward to – our son’s Spring Concert. I’ve already mentioned here that he joined the school concert band and he is playing the trumpet. Their winter concert was a success and I couldn’t be more excited to watch him play the trumpet again. I can’t believe he is actually playing it like a pro. He is the first one in our family to have joined played a musical instrument and that’s why I am so happy and overwhelmed.

All of them did great in their winter concert and although I am not familiar with all the musical instruments that they used (the super alloy 5 strings may be included in there), but more than anything, the music was so good to listen to. Their teacher really did great!

Our son is still enjoying his spring break and has been practicing his trumpet, honing his skills. I really love watching him play the trumpet.
