Is that a ONE you say?

Today was Leander ISD's Solo & Ensemble contest. For those of you who don't know Band talk, it's an excellent opportunity for students to play individually and receive constructive comments for musical growth from a professional musician/judge. Best score is a 1 and lowest score is a 4 or 5. Domi's piece was picked out by his private lesson instructor and was a high school piece. He was well prepared and scored a 1! This is his 3rd year playing the trumpet and each year his score has been a 1. His tone was excellent and the only thing he needs to work on is "musical pulse".

It was so cool - once he went into the room and began playing, people in the hallway got quiet and just listened in awe. One woman commented to him on his way out that he's going to go a long way in music. I would have to agree.
