This quarter we have been working on three pieces for our movie themed concert. The pieces are Funky Town, O Mio Babbino Caro, and The Prologue from Hook. I really like these pieces because I feel like we are stepping out of our comfort zones and playing some real and fun music. I have first part on all my pieces so that means I play my clarinet in a higher range and more often than other clarinets with second or third parts. There is also a challenge, you can try out to conduct Funky Town And of course I tried it. I also tried out for jazz band and I got in! I now play the piano for next year's jazz band. Jazz is a lot of fun and we have a lot of activities in class where we read interesting articles about jazz and other musical topics.
