I remember playing the recorder in 4th grade. I was a master at Hot Cross Buns and even played in a trio at our recital. Man I thought my playing Hot Cross Buns was going to change the face of elementary school music. As I look back though I realize it was the peak of my musical career. Who knew?
Now, fortunately, I get to relive it through the eyes of Reilly. Not only has he “seen” my Hot Cross Buns – he has raised me an Ode to Joy! Ouch, I can not compete with that.
It’s not a recital at the peak of their recorder path though, it’s belts like in martial arts. Reilly is a black belt in recorder and he’s worked hard to earn that.
