Mini Concert

My daughter's school has a small performance hall (they have a main hall too).
Tian Huey played the clarinet...


Every friday after school Tian Huey will have band practice. (the conductor is their music teacher too)

A secondary school band was invited to perform in this concert too. My kids are fortunate to have a very good headmaster who emphasizes a lot on extra curricular activities.
How thoughtful! After the performance, each of the band members handed roses to their parents while the M.C. was saying "...the children wish to thank their parents for their support and encouragement. By allowing the kids to stay in school for band practice on every friday afternoon made this concert possible..."

** I must admit that a year ago I nearly wanted to talk her out of joining because I was lazy to fetch her from school on every friday afternoon. I'm glad my daughter insisted!

我也是管乐的
从小学四年级直到现在初中三
我是吹flute的
每个星期都有练习

看到她的坚持
真欣慰=)
所以您也要继续坚持
看到女儿的成长
一切辛苦劳累都不算什么的了
:)

嗨!雯,謝謝妳的留言。我這個做媽媽的想到曾嘗試阻止女兒參加管乐感到慚愧。看了她當日的演奏以及聽了妳這麼說,我一定鼓勵她不斷學下去。

我想信妳的flute一定吹得很棒。加油喔!

You did the right thing in sacrificing. My mom used to discourage me in sports and extra curricular activities because of the addition trips to fetch me from school. I wont repeat this to my daughter.

Hi Casandra & Stephanie, welcome!

Stephanie, thanks for sharing. I'm quite sure your mom did not mean to discourage you to join all those activities, but her hands may be full at that time. Frankly, it's pretty tiring to chauffeur kids around :-)
