Alex recently got to march in his first parade with the West Valley Junior High. It actually wasn't Alex's favorite weekend experience; guess it was a little tiring. On a bright note, their band did place first in their division.
Alex has had such a great year playing first trumpet in almost every piece. He has had many solos over the year and has grown in his musical confidence. With that said, it is still always a struggle for him deciding if he wants to continue on playing in the future. Band takes up those precious electives and it is hard to feel like you are missing out on all the fun. Alex has some really great friends that play in the jazz band with him. He sure has talent!
