…there was a boy child born unto a family. This boy was the third child of four and was a delight to all who loved him. This boy child was an amazing being. Whilst still just a tot, before going off to school, he taught himself to read so that he wouldst know what the words scrolling across the magic box said as his older brothers did play their video games. Whence he was but still very young, in his first grade, his teacher did have him tested and he was made to go higher in mathematics than his grade would suggest (he skipped a grade in math). And then, in his sixth grade, he did decide to play upon a musical instrument. This instrument was called saxophone.
One day, in his 11th grade, in his 16th year of his life, he did compete in a competition most fierce. The name of the competition was called District Band Festival. He did play a composition, solo, that was much difficult and challenging and it went thus:
And he did well. His playing did please the judge and the boy’s family much.
Later, in that same day, he did compete with others of some talent, in what was called an ensemble and it went thus:
As with the solo he preformed, it did please the judge and the boy’s family much.
Verily, it pleased the judge so well, that the boy, both on his own as a soloist and together with his ensemble will be moving on to a more difficult and perilous competition called State Band Festival.
To be continued…
Congratulations to my wonderful third born child on his accomplishment!
