I Can Name That Tune in ?? Notes

So the past week or two I have been asking myself if my mother-in-law and father-in-law don't like us. For the record I know they like us but sometimes I wonder. Dale played the coronet when he was in junior high so about a year ago grandma and grandpa decided to pass the coronet down to Andrew. It feels like a form of torture when he practices at times. He was/is super excited about being in the school band and really has a passion for practicing. I want to be as supportive as possible but I have no clue what I am doing. I played the piano when I was a kid so I have a basic understanding of reading notes but don't know what I am doing when it comes to a brass instrument. Dale tries to help him as much as possible when he is home but I think we need more then that.

Can you name this tune??

Well, for those that are still trying to guess, that is Jingle Bells. I know it is only the first week in Nov., but I have heard what is suppose to be Jingle Bells at least 50 times already. By the time we get to the Christmas parade I am afraid I am going to loath that tune. We need an intervention by a specialist since this is out of our league but can't afford it.

I am thankful for Andrew's passion for playing the coronet but just wish I knew better how I could help him achieve his goals. I will have to post a better video as he moves forward in learning the song.


  1. Just hopped over to check out your "Giving Thanks" list. Looks like it's coming! Good job! I am thankful for many of the same things as you - especially the privilege of getting to be a SAHM. Wouldn't trade it for the world! =)

  2. Wow... what a headach!!! Poor little man, can he breath ok? Doesn't it take a lot of air to play a trumpet? Can he do that ok with his asthma?
