Music Class

Do you remember taking music class in grade school? I do. It was one of my favorite classes. I get such a kick out of my kids these days. Either they are nothing like me, or classes like music and art aren't as popular. My kids claim to hate music class.

"It's too boring," they say.


I remember being impressed with the classroom aids my music teacher used. It was a long time before I realized that the perfectly straight lines of her staffs weren't hand drawn, but painted on the chalk board. Try as I might, I could never get mine to be a perfect as hers.

Why these kids think music is boring is beyond me. Lord knows they listen to it non-stop, every single day. Of course, the stuff they listen to can hardly be called music, so maybe that's why.
