Protected: Cayman Sings The Blues

Cayman will tell you she’s not the greatest recorder player…as she told me, “I’m horrible at recorder; the worst in class.” So, for the upcoming recorder recital, when her music teacher asked if anyone wanted to write words and sing them to one of the songs they were playing that didn’t have lyrics, she jumped right in.

Cayman wrote the lyrics herself, I think in one draft. She practiced the song by playing an MP3 we found of it on another school’s site. She never got to practice it in rehearsal in music class, and she just showed up and did it. She was nervous, she said, but I think she did great. There were 140ish kids playing recorder, about 160 kids from 3rd grade watching, and probably the same number of parents. What a gutsy kid.
