Henry’s Flute Recital

So it was just about a year ago that I said, “Henry, I really want you to decide on an instrument you like so you can start taking lessons” and he said, “Oh, I already know what I want to play! The harp!” At which point I tried really hard not to burst out laughing, and also tried hard to erase the mental image of Henry trapped under a harp, since he weighs as much as a sparrow.

But luckily he had a second choice: the flute. And even better, we found an awesome teacher, Carl Dimow. Last night was Henry’s first recital. He was very first on the program, and it was so fun to sit back and watch all the other people Carl teaches and get Henry inspired for all the different kinds of flute music he can play.

“Are you nervous, Henry?” I asked a few minutes before it started. “No!” he said with surprise. “I’m so excited!”

    Ack! Can’t find the link 🙁

    My DD aspires to ‘harp’ as well but we found a nifty lap harp that is *almost* as good and is a lot of fun to play. In case the flute thing really takes off and you need more players for your quartet!

    Ok, sorry, didn’t realize what you meant by “can’t find the link.” Not sure how it disappeared, but it’s up there now. I hope!
