John's new toy...

by Ann Garratty August. 27, 2011 3059 views

Our county's government music department, in all their wisdom and with all the government cutbacks etc, have recently doubled their fees and sadly also made quite a few teachers redundant, John's trumpet teacher being one of the unlucky ones, so we dicided to stick with the original music teacher and go private, which also sadly meant he had to hand back his trumpet that he has been using for the last 2 years, which also meant that we had to buy him a trumpet of his own… nice for John… but instruments are expensive… anyway, here is John's shiny new and beautiful trumpet…

Glad he's continuing with his lessons. My nephew is a peripatetic teacher of guitar in schools... it breaks his heart when young students are obliged to hand their instruments back, even more so when parents are unable to replace them.
The last photo is so full of glitz!

That's such a familiar story. Our music service were under threat of redundancies but have managed to avoid them so far - at least until April. I hope John enjoys his new trumpet! I like the way it glows in the final shot :-)

Yes, the cutbacks to the art programs especially are happening here too. I'm glad you are able to allow John to continue his musical adventure with a beautiful new trumpet..nice photos. I really like that last flashy one.
