What instruments does

What instruments does everybuggy play??  I play the piano and the recorder and I want to learn the flute.  My brother plays the guitar, so sometimes we play together.

Paige, I play the flute!!!! I've played for about 5 1/2 years, and would definitely recommend learning it! I've also played viola for a year and a half. It's a lot different than the flute, but I really enjoy playing two completely different instruments.

Hannah R. and Kimberly B. (or anyone else who plays flute!!), have you ever listened to or played Mozart's Flute Concerto in G Major? I'm working on the first movement right now. It's a lot of fun!! :)

No, I've never played it before, but I'm pretty sure that I've heard it. If it's the song that I'm thinking of, I think that it's REALLY pretty.:) Is it hard to learn?:):):)

Thanks! :) Yes, there are LOTS of other kids in orchestra. I'm playing flute in it. I don't really get nervous playing, because there are so many people playing at the same time. :):):)

That's a lot of butterflies!!!  I hope you did well at church.  I had a piano recital yesterday.  Fortunately it was at a nursing home, so they wouldn't remember that I played the same songs as last time, and they wouldn't hear if I made a mistake.  It was really fun.  I played the piano while my piano teacher and her daughter (who is her teacher) played the violin.  My teacher put me in charge of organizing the Christmas recital there.  I'm already playing the song I want.  It's a really pretty version of the song "Bring a Torch, Jeanette Isabella".

I think that I did pretty well, and everybody came over and said I did a great job, so I guess I did!:)  My brother, sister and I have played for a nursing home before-it was so nice!:):):) I bet you'll have a great time getting ready for the Christmas recital!:):):) The 3 of us were in a Christmas choir last year, and we sang the song, "Bring a Torch, Jeanette Isabella"!:):):) It was so pretty, and one of my favorite songs!:):):)

Oh, I wish that I could hear it, too!:( Oh well, I'll just have to try and imagine it!:):):) It must sound so pretty!:):):) The version we did was really cool, because it was that Christmas song mixed up with like "Silent Night"!:):):) I loved it!:):):) I've been playing the flute at Church for about 3 weeks now, and I love it!:D:D:D It's so much fun!:):):) My brother played the piano for the WHOLE MASS yesterday!!!!!! I was so nervous, but he did so well!:):):) I knew he would, because he's an amazing piano player!:):):)
