Evan and the Drums

And the music continues.................

Evan was invited about 6-8 weeks ago to play a drum accompaniment with the 4th and 5th grade chorus. His music teacher remembered he played the drums from last year. She said she thought of him when she needed a drummer for a small piece the chorus was putting on for their Spring Musical. Evan has never played with other musicians before. This past Friday, Monday and Tuesday was his only time playing with the group. He learned how to intro in, exit and stay with the group. I only wish John could have seen him play. He was the one who helped him through the process. I just was the mean mommy making him practice every night. Anyway.....enjoy my little drummer boy.

This is the rest of his drumming piece. I was sitting next to an elderly woman who was not that friendly. She proclaimed she was only here to watch a certain child play the piano. When I started filming Evan she was fidgety making it known I was interrupting her watching this child. So I quickly moved to another location during his piece.
