You Know It!

In sixth grade I was told that my school was starting a band program. I didn't really care since I didn't have a choice. They sent home a packet with a list of instruments, and descriptions of each one. I wanted to play the Tuba, but my mom said no. After looking over the instruments, I decided to play the saxophone. It looked cool, and I figured it couldn't be that hard to play. For the rest of sixth grade, I sucked. I got every note wrong, I breathed too much, and I couldn't read the music. By the time I was in ninth grade, I was very good at playing the Saxophone. I was the top player in my school band. I continued to play until I graduated high school. Now I'm a freshmen in college, and I still pull out my Saxophone once in a while and play. I love it, and I hope to take lessons again some day.
